Here is the lining used in the first shot
Can you see the difference? If you can, which do you prefer? It's going to become this dress.
I know it's hard to tell from a photo and your monitor may show a very different colour. The fabric is silk chiffon that I bought about 7 years ago purely because I love the colours. At that time I never actually thought I would sew in chiffon, so I never expected to actually use this fabric. Faced with my staff christmas function, which is a visit to the races at the Gold Coast, travelling on this bus from Mullumbimby (yes I live in the hippy capital of Australia), I knew I needed a bright new dress to wear. The pink is a dark crimson and the green a deep olive.
This is the lining used in the second shot.I'm unsure which I prefer and I'm unsure about accessories. I have found a good match for the pink, but I think maybe I'm a little old to dress like a lolly. I've seen a few olive shoes and I have a pair that will work in a pinch. I also have a ridiculous pair of silver shoes that will work if I don't find anything else. I have an olive bag and I actually have a large pink and green straw bag that matches. I even have the perfect olive sun hat.
Any thoughts would be welcome.
