The judges have been struggling recently with a particular vendor of this dress that does not quite do the dying accurately, so we wanted to propose the following clarifications to the standards:

Quote:
1. Fitted floor-length halter-neck gown cut on the bias with a low scoop back, ombre-dyed in shades of yellow, pink and light bluish lilac.

2. Long, full overdrape of a semi-sheer flowing silk or silk-like fabric also ombre-dyed in shades of yellow, pink and light bluish lilac. The drape encircles the body somewhat loosely, is gathered to create sleeve drapes that extend from mid-upper arm to the wrist, and has a long train with squared corners. The drape edges are entirely bound with wide satin charmeuse bias binding, also dyed to match the gradient of the fabric.

3. The halter gown and overdrape front are gathered at the neck to a mother of pearl shell-like collar of several pieces of graduating size rimmed in light burnished gold, affixed to a narrow ivory neckband with two delicate burnished gold chains on either side.

4. The overdrape sleeves are each affixed to a light burnished gold curvaceous zig-zag armband with pearly white patches painted or attached at regular intervals.

5. The bottom front of the drape is gathered by a wrap of mother of pearl medallions strung in a row and clustered to create little “pansies” with ivory pearl centers. Draping from the wrap is a long tassel of ivory pearl and iridescent crystal seed beads.

6. The back of the drape is gathered and pulled up to be affixed to the center back waist of the halter gown. A brooch of mother of pearl medallions clustered to form a “pansy” with an ivory pearl center and multi-length strands of ivory pearl and iridescent crystal seed beads cover the gathering point.

7. Low heeled coordinating tailored pumps or flats (bluish lilac low-heeled satin mules are suggested).

8. Hair is parted in middle with two small sections twisted in front and tucked into a “cornucopia” or “nautilus” of hair held in place with multiple headbands that graduate in size from the crown of the head to the end of the hair covered in a purple silk or silk-like brocade of fabric with silvery swirls tipped in silvery pearls. Naturally occurring hair colors only (brown recommended); no bangs. If a wig or extensions are used, they must be high-quality and appear like real hair.


Is there anything else we would like to change while we are in there?

This discussion will remain open for at least two weeks, or until a consensus is reached.

I'd add in a description of the color gradient to point 1.

The gown is yellow in the top half and on the sleeves, then graduate to soft pink in the middle, and finally to soft, light lilac (or violet) at the bottom.

I've added in the word 'soft', because some vendors have very harsh/highly saturated colors, while everything about this gown from form and drape over colors are soft and delicate looking. It might help letting people know what to look for. Smile

That would make the standards look like this:

Quote:
1. Fitted floor-length halter-neck gown cut on the bias with a low scoop back, ombre-dyed in shades of yellow, pink and light bluish lilac.

2. Long, full overdrape of a semi-sheer flowing silk or silk-like fabric also ombre-dyed in shades of yellow, pink and light bluish lilac. The gown is yellow in the top half and on the sleeves, then graduate to soft pink in the middle, and finally to soft, light lilac (or violet) at the bottom. The drape encircles the body somewhat loosely, is gathered to create sleeve drapes that extend from mid-upper arm to the wrist, and has a long train with squared corners. The drape edges are entirely bound with wide satin charmeuse bias binding, also dyed to match the gradient of the fabric.

3. The halter gown and overdrape front are gathered at the neck to a mother of pearl shell-like collar of several pieces of graduating size rimmed in light burnished gold, affixed to a narrow ivory neckband with two delicate burnished gold chains on either side.

4. The overdrape sleeves are each affixed to a light burnished gold curvaceous zig-zag armband with pearly white patches painted or attached at regular intervals.

5. The bottom front of the drape is gathered by a wrap of mother of pearl medallions strung in a row and clustered to create little “pansies” with ivory pearl centers. Draping from the wrap is a long tassel of ivory pearl and iridescent crystal seed beads.

6. The back of the drape is gathered and pulled up to be affixed to the center back waist of the halter gown. A brooch of mother of pearl medallions clustered to form a “pansy” with an ivory pearl center and multi-length strands of ivory pearl and iridescent crystal seed beads cover the gathering point.

7. Low heeled coordinating tailored pumps or flats (bluish lilac low-heeled satin mules are suggested).

8. Hair is parted in middle with two small sections twisted in front and tucked into a “cornucopia” or “nautilus” of hair held in place with multiple headbands that graduate in size from the crown of the head to the end of the hair covered in a purple silk or silk-like brocade of fabric with silvery swirls tipped in silvery pearls.

Is that what you had in mind?

Yes. Smile Though I personally don't care whether we use lilac, violet, or purple to describe the color of the bottom of the dress.

I would agree that the bottom color is much closer to purple than blue from the costume exhibit that has been travelling the country. I like Lora's change.

Thanks everyone for your feedback! I'm going to move this standard along to the detachment for further discussion.
