Beloved Pin Posse I need you. I can't decide where to take my Pimpernel revamp. After laying my scraps of fabric out this evening I discovered I have enough room to recut the whole bodice so I now have lots of options. This is not a good thing as I can't make up my mind.

Should I go for something very foufy and I-Want-Candy like this:

Or should I go a bit later and be all Duchess inspired:

I'll be using silk gauze or ivory lace instead of self trimming/metallic lace, since that is all I have on hand. *ponders* The I-Want-Candy option is more of what I had in mind in the beginning (and when I made my frosting hat) but my Pimpernel is so similar in basic structure to the coral Duchess dress, even down to the front skirt being a little short. In short I'm drawn to both inspirations for this project, for different reasons, and I think they'd both be pretty and flattering. I really want both but only can have one. *sob* I can't decide - help!
