Rate the dress - Chanel circa 1927

Oh the controversy over last weeks dress!

Some of you loved it, some of you hated it, and some of you were just confused and thought that Tissot might have accidentally painted the front view of the bodice and the back view of the skirt.

The mixed ratings earned the dress a 6.7 out of 10.

I personally find the dress interesting just for the challenge of attempting to recreate it as an attractive garment, and I'm far from the only one with a desire to make that dress!

This week we leave impractical and constricting garments aside and look at the designer credited with discarding Victorian frou-frous, a designer noted for her clean, simple designs.

Do we like clean and simple? Do we even agree that this is clean and simple? Or is this Chanel dress a little too detailed to count as 'clean and simple', and a little too demanding for any but the best figure to carry off.
