Initially I was planning on using black as an underlay for my dress. I like the idea of black mostly because it’s obvious that it’s there, so people won’t look at me and wonder if I’m wearing anything under my sheer outer dress. But then when I saw the sheer fabric of the skirt over black, it kind of looked like the black sucked the life out of the colors in the fabric. Then I decided to take some other silks from my stash and try them out. I pinned the silk yardage to the dress form, and pinned the silk tulle for the next skirt layer to the silk yardage. Here are the possibilities:
I’m going to sleep on it, but I’m pretty sure I like the red best. The textured silk looks OK too, though.
