I’ve come to a point where I have realized that I have to actually decide how I’m going to make the skirt of this TARDIS dress, but I have several separate ideas and no idea what I really want the final product to look like.
Do I want to use tulle, or chiffon? Should I do a tulle top skirt and a chiffon petticoat? A solid top skirt and chiffon petticoat? Should I just use a solid mile of tulle like a tutu skirt? If I make it and I don’t like it, will I have the energy to unstitch the skirt and try again? But if I do that more than once it’s going to start to get ragged and gross. Not to mention potentially expensive. Not that I can’t reuse tulle or chiffon, but just that chiffon is itself a little pricey. Do I start with tulle because it’s cheap, and assume that I can mod it if I don’t like it?
So many questions.
I wish I were better at envisioning the true final product. I know when I first drew the design, I was imagining tulle with some of the under layers having little petticoat ruffles sticking out off the bottom of them- but if I have like 10 layers like I’m thinking about, how does that look? That brings me back to doing my white layers as a single petticoat under enough layers of the blue that the color isn’t distorted by the white underneath it.
DECISIONS ARE HARD.
