Hi
I'm making a dress based on a tribal theme, kinda Adam ant meets Scotland and some roaming princess....if that makes sense.
The fabrics I have chosen are Egyptian cotton, plain voile, butter muslin, tweed and brass pop studs.

I'm looking for dress pictures to help me kinda ragged, tea stained, multi layered but not poofy
can u guys come up with anything?

AHA! I found the posts I was looking for, despite the comatose state of craftster's search engine:

FadingHippie has some monster talent! She (and other users on here) was apparently inspired by Gibbous, who do the most interesting deconstructed-looking victorian-style fashions:

As for "meets Scotland and some roaming princess," I think the movie Braveheart had some gorgeous costuming (although I can't attest to the historical accuracy). Good luck Cheesy

How about a sort of bohemian/esmeralda thing?  I'm not sure if that's what you're goign for, but it seems it would be great for the skirt. Make a few half circle skirts, most of them from your thinnest fabric, dye them various shades of "tea" colors, then cut them so they look worn and ragged? and maybe make a top skirt from the tweed that you'll pin up or make "more worn" so all the other ones show underneath.  If you have thin fabric that shouldn't be too poofy.

I like penguins, stars, rainbows and blue.
If your project has any of these, don't be surprised to see me post in it! Cheesy
