What to make next...

As Dickens approaches and I come to terms with the fact the I barely have time to make one dress much less two I am now faced with a choice. I have patterns and fabric for two dresses. Below are pictures of the sillouhette and fabric of each of the items I could work on next.

The first is a ditsy blue floral on a white background in a light weight cotton. The dress is a super cute and is a pleated dress that is the right years for Dickens.




The second is an adorable dress from the 1880's (more my time period and sillouhette) in a beautiful white and blue plaid that is a medium weight cotton.




Audience participation time! Which do you think I should work on? 1) time appropiate blue floral pleated dress - OR - 2) super re-wearable blue plaid???

The second one. I love the plaid and the sleeves.

The second one. Most people at the fair will not realize it is not the appropriate time period, and the ones that do will not be off put except the snobbish. Having been a Ren Fair person in not exactly period garb, I found it to be just fine except for those few. Besides, you should make what you really would love to wear! :D
