compromise needed. The original dress was made with lots of structure
and with the actress available for fittings. I don't think you're
going to get that exact dress, but you can get some features. The
fabric, the color and the trimming will look beautiful even if it's
not the exact lines.
The patterns you've shown will be beautiful gowns, the only
difference is that they do not have the heavy sleeves. You're not
looking at the off-the-shoulder neckline.
Plus you were talking about a stretch velvet, which will behave
differently than a woven fabric. Your fitting "muslin" will need to
have similar stretch to your stretch velvet.
Part of the conversation with the client is, what parts of the
original gown does she like the best? What does it need to have, vs.
what can be compromised in order to be able to make it long-distance?
