Indecision...



Messing around with trim for the Poppy Parker waistline.   I couldn't decide which I liked best, so rather than affix the ribbon trim to the dress, I decided I didn't have to make the choice after all, and that I could have all three.

I'm curious as to which one people prefer.

Option 1: Which I think emphasises the slim waist without chopping the body in half.




 Option 2: Again self-coloured, but with a little more detail.




Option 3: I like the contrast, and the ribbon here matches the peach petticoats, and breaks up the rust coloured dress a bit.




Here are the three detachable waist sashes.  One for whichever mood Poppy happens to be in.



I still feel as if the dress needs something else, but I have more designs I want to make. So I'll probably leave it here for a bit and see how I feel later on.

    1. Thank you! :) I had lots of opinions over on Facebook and the bow seems to be the clear winner.

  4. My fave is the belt with the bow - really finishes the dress off!

    1. I honestly couldn't decide which is why I made the three options, but I'm going with popular opinion, and Tulabelle (who has stolen the dress) is wearing it with the bow attachment.

  5. I`m a bit late to this particular party but agree with the majority on the bow sash. Because the style of the dress is very classic and pared down I don`t think the plain belts really add anything and not keen on the contrast one at all - for me it chops the dress in half.

    1. I agree about the contrast sash, it does chop her in half. I love the bow personally, but I nearly always trim my dolls dresses with a bow at the waist and wondered if it might be getting boring, lol.
