So.... I caved and bought Vogues 2931 and Vogues 7464 (for view A) while they were on sale, and then found this nice vintage pattern that I can modify for the top........ Yes, I think I want to make something like this dress. But... I'm thinking I'll take the shape, but do different fabrics. I have a gunmetal green satin, a green/blue shot Dupioni , a copper/purple shot Dupioni, and some cotton crinkle textured pinstripe black and white fabric. I'm thinking a Steampunk Wicked Witch. Keep the general shape, but layer colours. 100% sure what would go were, but still..... and I'd get to paint my skin green. Hell, even it I fail as a witch, I'd make a smashing lady Jägermonster, I'd even have a proper hat.
