MAKE THIS SOLID BLACK, NO CENTER IN A STRETCH SATIN MATERIAL..... NOTE: IN REGARDS TO THIS COLOR...I like the white because if you switched it to mainly black and then white your eye would want to go to the white and you would actually look larger. Now solid black with a dark red Jacquard satin material would look great. Even a deep blue satin in the center Jacquard with black. however I love the top.
I can't believe this made 50 dollars..I would not wear this..too costumey. Original design was ok..This top http://www.chicstar.com/storefront/protoDetail.aspx?idProto=892 was more pretty..I don't understand the bidding sometimes!
This design is ok, but for myself and being a store owner, I buy items in bulk that will make a good quick turnover profit. This top would be purchased by the average consumer for a night out, wedding, dance..not bought for the average wear, so this would sit on my rack longer then say one of the retro dresses for sale here, that could be worn at work, night out, to the store for a day of shopping, date etc... I hope chic star pays attention to that when they decide on production items.
I don't think the bidding will grow high for this one because of its fabric. It's a shame, this is a really beautiful design. :( I'm sorry but you should stop using this kind of fabric, it definitely doesn't have much success as you can see. Furthermore, I agree with Sylvia about the boning, and with people saying that it would be nice if the cincher could be taken off (personally I prefer the other version without the cincher :p).
Gorgeous design! If this were made of a more natural material & without the waist cincher (some of us have our own we'd like to use, "real" ones), I'd be buying more than one :-). I agree that the polyester make it too much like it came from the costume shop.
Okay I just looked at the white Rachel is talking about and I have to disagree. I actually think that might look tacky. Because this is a one piece item and not two separate pieces where there is a real waist-cincher, I think you are always going to risk having that custom-y look but that spandex/cotton combo might just do this in. Back when the vamp look was hot there were so (too) many of those types of tops and they usually looked nightclub-trashy. Maybe an all cotton for those who are anti-shine but I think this version would look very nice in person. We really don't have any dressy tops here. I would suggest light boning to waylay some of that pirate costume feel.
I actually like it - and I usually cringe when I see these designs. I can see where a cotton version would look more everyday-Steampunk but this makes it more accessible as an elegant piece, like Sean said. Maybe they could just make both versions if it does well.
Wow! The result looks very nice, even if I do agree with people saying that this fabric isn't the best choice. I like this kind of fabrics, but for special occasions. It's too shiny for everyday clothes, it looks like a piece of costume, like something that won't last.
The design is great. However, I agree with everyone thus far about the material. Would've been better as a linen or cotton fabric, maybe leaving the corset satin-ish. It looks like the top half of a kid's Halloween costume because it's too synthetic-looking.
Sorry, I do agree with Rachael...this looks like part of a Walmart costume for Halloween. The shiny material on this particular design doesn't work for me and even though I had this on my designs wish list I would not want to bid on this piece with this fabric..
The white part should have been made out of 14% spandex and 86% polyester and the cincher was to be made in cotton. All this shiney material is just not right, can this be redone in correct material type?
