ELEGANCE FASHIONS

I would like the lace ties to end just under the bum, and the skirt converted to flared trousers with a zip or studs on the front.

end the lace half way down as it looks silly falling at the ends, and id change the colour behind the lace so it stands out more, the burgundy and dark green look awesome.

The lacing is a nice idea but it looks ridiculous when it falls loose.

Agree with Cassandra, it looks as if lacing is too large

To me the lacing is too far down, one will get easily hooked up while walking.

Great improvement, now much more nice and beautiful. I love it and I am BIDDING on this, yay^^

much better! If I bid on this & would win I'd still stitch the bottom part of the corset ribbon down subtly so it doesn't sag. But this is a HUGE improvement compared to the first version.

To be perfectly honest, I don't think that size ribbon (the small one) is appropriate on most of the clothes they use it on - particularly the coats. Small ribbon is for small details or closer corseting.

Thanks, Monique,Candy, and Betty. Glad there is agreement about the ribbon. :)

Definitely needs a ribbon change!

I think this is a great design for this unique site but the demonstration is rather abating to the garment. Ooh well, Also the model's hip is not even, lol... as you see that one side's tilted. In addition to the thicker lacing and tightening and adjust the lacing properly then this skirt will be much improved(I am totally agreeing with Sean). Once again, this type of skirt are in demand to customers, especially plus size women.

I think that type of ribbon would look much better Sean. It would thicken up that area, tighten the weave & clean it up. I think if it was adjusted a bit this could be a beautiful skirt & I love the idea.

In truth, my idea for the lacing was similar to this: http://chicstar.com/storefront/protoDetail.aspx?idProto=1331 (The thick flat ribbon) as I think this would stay secured much more when tightened. My apologizes to Chicstar for not making this more clear initially. I also appreciate everyone taking the time to put in their feedback as well.

Oh, oh no! I hate to add on to the list of displeased folks, but this just doesn't look how I had imagined it. Sean always manages to surprise with the way outfits are put together on his models, so I bet the picture he submits will be stunning... I just don't know if I could make this work without a hot glue gun.

No biggie, just didn't want it to seem like I was claiming that.

oh ok Sorry Sylvia ! I misunderstood... my mistake

That was in Sean's original design; not my idea.

I think Sylvia that your idea of grommet is really good (I was looking for the right word :)) !    
 
Date 2/8/2012 7:12:07 PM
Name SYLVIA PETERS
How about a center row of grommets or d-rings to prevent that sagging look (especially at the bottom) or just using s thicker ribbon might solve the problem altogether...something.

I don't say this often - or at all for that matter - but this is just terrible. It looks less like a prototype and more like ribbon was haphazardly attached to and already produced skirt. Definitely should have stayed with the jacquard, and the faux-corseting needs to be tighter, narrower-set and either tacked down or adhere to the grommet system of the design (in which case I think the inner piece should be a separate, recessed panel). The lace (or maybe velvet as someone else suggested) detail should be returned. Hate to be harsh but this is really a sagging mess and we already know ChicStar is capable of so much better.

I think if we can put something to hold the ribbon closer to the skirt it would be very good !(like braids on boots ?)

Wow how exciting to see the proto! I do see the point of the previous comments but I think a lot of the looseness is likely excess ribbon (which is a good thing as an easy trim always works). Since many other products with the lacing often have a lot of extra lacing. I plan to definitely submit a photo (of a friend) to demonstrate how it appears worn with a full outfit. So excited! :))

I'm w/Marleen on this one. The looseness of the fabric on the actual model compared to the drawing is awkward. I think it would look better if it had a Faux Corset look where the lacing was stitched down & not adjustable. It would look more like the drawing that way. I like the idea though... just not the proto.

I'm not so sure about the lacing all down the skirt. Seems a bit unpractical. I could see myself getting stuck everywhere with something like this :)
