I was wondering if this dress will work under the dress-requirements: http://kuri-queen-of-feels.tumblr.com/post/80341280142/eeeeeeeeeeeeeee-guys-the-corsested-part-is-able-to Its not 100% done, but this is the ref I am going off of: http://i211.photobucket.com/albums/bb159/LakuriSyaoran/tumblr_muekjdZ7K91rfe186o1_500_zpsf3a9e69c.jpg
I'm just a little worried about the hem line and the top being against the rules. The hem line on the shorter of the asymmetrical comes just above my knee and I don't know if that is ok or not.(it looks a little more in the picture, but once it is finished, the layers are going to weigh down more). The top just because its completely strapless and lower cut I don't know if there is a rule about that. It's a corset so its won't be sliding down or anything.
It would just be nice to be able to wear this since, hopefully, I'm going to enter the masquerade with it, and I would love to just be able to walk over and join the ball :p
The easiest way I can think of to test this is to put your knees on a chair or your bed (like this
). If you see thigh, it'll be too short. If it is just a little bit too short, one solution would be to wear a slip or something of the same color underneath that is just long enough to reach your knees (or you could just tack on an extra strip of fabric to the lining - several people have done that in the past with safety pins or fabric tape). That way it's not any permanent change to your design, but will be easy to go from one event to the other without the hassle of completely changing something.
I'd wait until you're finished with the skirt before testing it and making that decision, though! it looks like, despite the angle, it has a relatively good chance of being approved after being sewn together. Great job with it so far!
I know this is for attire questions but I can't find what time and day the Ball is. Is it undetermined yet?
The Black & White Ball is on Sunday, May 25th from 6:00pm until midnight. It used to go until 11, but we wanted to give everyone who wanted to attend the Cosplay Masquerade as well enough time to enjoy both events.
