 Ask Janet
Ask Janet Question Loni: Hi Janet, I am wearing a vintage gown with a train to an annual awards banquet for my company. The train is a separate piece of fabric permanently attached at the lowest part of the back. The material matches the black fabric of the dress on top, and the underside is salmon pink. Someone told me that I should wear the train over my arm? Could you tell me what to do with the train 1. When walking 2. When sitting 3. When receiving awards 4. If dancing. Thanks!
