These are cute! I love how big a difference the first one made by just removing the sleeves and bow, it looks like something you would see now a days! As for the first one I think it looks fine as it is I like the bubble skirt... but for some reason I think it needs a white belt with a giant white bow in the back... but that could be my inner 80's child talking Cheesy

I really like the black and white one. Smiley I think it looks a heck of a lot nicer than it originally was. Maybe it could have done with being a little shorter though Smiley But considering what it looked like before hand it is awesome Smiley

Is happy to do personal swaps Smiley

The general consensus about the black/white dress is that the skirt seems to be too long, regardless of what other styles it could be in.  the skirt is about knee-length, give or take, since it's so poofy.  I think I'm going to leave it, maybe take a little off the length, and secure the skirt better.  The tulle is inside, and it shifts.  So, I'll figure out how to anchor it better so it lays evenly.

LOL  I took a bow off of it already!  I think it was on the butt.  It really needed to go.

hey! that first one is actually really attractive now! whaaaaaaat?!  Shocked  Cheesy
as for the second one, someone might have mentioned it, but i think some black tulle over the white skirt would make the contrast between the black and white a little softer and not so cut- and- paste. not that it's so bad right now, especially comparatively.
i'm looking forward to seeing the next batch! this is such a cool project!

I love them both! I actually really like the contrast of the b/w and wow it's amazing how awesome that first one looks just by taking off those sleeves and that bow! Awesome!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

Nice work! I can show my age by saying that first style was alot like my prom dress except it was shiny green irridescent taffeta! Ah, the memories...

I like the poofy skirt, and I personally like the length it is. My suggestion would be to add some tucks and put a small black tulle embellishment (flower? other? ) as the 'fastener' for the tucks.
Does that make sense? How about this pic for inspiration:

I really like the first one.  It looks so elegant, and totally now.

Oh, Gorgeous! I'm IN LOVE with the second one! Not loving the color, but fantastic design!
