Great shade of blue and a lovely style of dress for the summer but I do not like her shoes with that dress.

Archduchess Zelia 06-19-2012 03:31 PM

I agree, the shoes and the dress don't go well together. I adore the dress though, it's very beautiful and it looks very comfortable to wear.

IloveCP 06-19-2012 03:31 PM

Beautiful shades of blue! The dress is stunning but I don't like the shoes with it.

Yes, this is a beautiful dress. Such a lovely pattern and the style looks great on her.

Al_bina 06-29-2012 03:48 PM

The dress is lovely indeed.

IloveCP 06-29-2012 09:38 PM

The cut is nice but I don't like the print.

Yet another Natan dress.
I actually like the hazy flower print and how it becomes less dense towards the top, but the skirt in its stiff bell shape gives Mathilde an elephant-sized bottom half of the body...
For his designs, I sometimes think that Natan does nothing but leaf through fashion magazines from the late 50s to early 60s to copy every cut, only to execute it with bad craftsmanship.

The silhouette trouble:

Boris,
You are quite right. Given the photo you have posted, the execution is not good. Edouard Vermeulen could have made a better effort to tailor the bell/tulip skirt to favourably emphasise Crown Princess Mathilde's figure. I too like the print.

Baroness of Books 06-30-2012 02:28 PM

Yes, this photo gives a different perspective and while I still like the print, the shape is not the most flattering. I remember wearing that style back in the '60s. Ah, well, back to the drawing board!

dazzling 06-30-2012 04:52 PM

The print is great for spring/summer but the cut is not flattering.

I am a really bad dressmaker but I know 2 rules

1. Dont have a seam down the front of a dress BUT if you do
2. Match the pattern

I can't believe this "designer" failed to match the pattern and I'm even more surprised she bought it.

princess gertrude 06-30-2012 07:00 PM

I like the colors and patterns on this dress, but the belled skirt is really throwing me. The top of the dress is nice and fit of it is wonderful.

You are so right. This has got to be the one of the worst dresses I've seen on these boards. It really does look like a home ec dress gone wrong. And, the top is too tight!
I do appreciate you placing blame on the maker and wearer!:bang:
