Long post, but here goes... I love the dress !!!

This dress is gorgeous.  Overall, it's perfect.  Don't change the fabric or the structure! It's an incredible creation. The difference between the solid structure of the bust and the airy float of the skirt creates a lot of interest and ethereal energy. The solid bust seems to float in the cloud of skirt, and when you wear it you'll look like you're floating too. What you've created is truly stunning.  It looks like the perfect archetype for the Fairy Queen in A Midsummer's Night's Dream.
Suggestions: Asymmetric application of bling will play up the organic design of the
Put a thin layer of gold bling in an asymetric sweep near the end of the train.
Add a bit of red bling on the inner edge of gold side on the back, and also scattered across the front at the top of the bust.  
Some red bling dusted up the spines of the collar will really emphasize the the epic nature of this dress, & tie everything in together.
And have fun!!! You don't have to follow the rules, the way you've broken "the rules" may have created new ones for the rest of us.

One more thought...
You could wear a necklace with a single large red jewel - That would be incredible.

Oh yes, that really does bridge the eye much better from the bottom to top!

I have a question: on the original picture the collar seemed to set back a littler further, on the new one it seems to go more straight up and closer to the head.  Is that just in the picture taking?

I can't wait to see what else you do, especially with embroidery.  This is just amazing Smiley keep us updated with juicy pictures  Wink

I like the change in the bodice. The first time I saw the dress I was thinking there needed to be more of a fade between the red orange skirt and the yellow top, so I am very pleased with this change. I miss the pleating on the skirt though. I liked that a lot.

I like it with the yellow bust part.

I would suggest getting some little crystals that will really catch the light, something to flash but that will catch the fire colours. even if you did some little patterns allong the skirt with eh glitter fabric paint? nothing too complicated, just small details like curls and twists

It is amazing though! your going a great job!

 I am intrigued by your dress, could you get some ideas from this
 i think that if you took some yellow down the skirt it would tie the dress together,the skirt color seems to have some yellowish tones to it. and the color of the skirt going over the shoulder of Elizabeth in the portrait ties the skirt to the top. Gives something for the eye to follow.
my first post ,so hi to everyone, been lurking and enjoying the talent here.
