Default Need opinions-NAOW!

I'm working on a new dress with these cute pointed armscyes. It will have a flat bow in the middle where the arms point to. So keep that in mind.

Should I bring the "flare" in a bit so it's more of a shift dress or keep as is (more of a trapeze style)? It's not hemmed so don't look at the raggedy edges.

I'm going for a retro, mod, 1960's shorty short dress look.





~~~~~~~
I have time to sew TODAY but am stuck on if it's too swingy for the idea of the dress. I want this bad boy hemmed and ready for the next step ASAP...

I think a straighter dress might look like a flight attendant with the bow in front. I like the fullness of the dress.

So maybe google image search "60s baby doll dress" and see which style suits your taste more. There are examples of both cuts.

I like both (I've made a few trapeze dresses with one being a huge tent dress shape). I think I just have to pick one and go with it.

I might take a wee bit out but still leave it pretty swingy. I'm afraid of it looking like a sack if I straighten it too much.

Will there be an 'after' pic? I love the fullness of the dress now but am having a hard time picturing the bow!

I'll snap a pic this afternoon with the bow. Right now, we're off to downtown to do a "real" photo shoot of the last dress I made (that's finishing testing now and will be launched this weekend).
