Gowns by Laura collection for the Audrey/Parisian Fashionista!
No doubt, this style makes a bold statement. You likely find yourself with a strong reaction to that bow, but the dress would be nothing without it. Think of this dress with only a flat band. BORING. A slightly smaller bow might be okay, but would it really sell the style? With design, I can sometimes feel it's best to "go big or go home." No statement can be worse than boring. I decided to look up this idea of skirts and bows and found them everywhere! Take a look:
Pauline Alice (who happens to be from FRANCE!), now a pattern company, made this custom skirt that sold on Etsy. (For patterns, see http://www.paulinealice.com/)
There are a whole lot of big bows going on in the Ready-to-Wear world also. See the line up below:
This is the beauty of sewing: YOU decide how big the bow should be. Happy Bow Making! See more photos and get your Myrtlewood pattern here: http://www.sewchicpatterns.com/myrtlewood.html
