Lightbulb "Aristocrat" style help

Hello all, it's been a while.

Life happened. Years have passed and I now have my mind set that I'm too old for Lolita. I just turned 30. I know the argument used to be that anyone can dress in the style whenever they want and what not, but the fact is I won't feel comfortable dressed in all the frills and cutesy-ness that comes with Lolita. I had always loved the idea of Aristocrat styles, particularly the extremely obscure sub style called "Madam" or "Mademoiselle", which suits my current tastes.


I bought this really old pattern a few years ago:

I really like the one on the right. I bought them with Lolita in mind (round collar, shorter skirt... some gawd awful headdress and MOAR RACE), however, I would really like to make the pattern as is for the most part... except the collar, either shorten it and stand it up, or get rid of it all together.

So, do you think the one on the right would work with Mademoiselle? For reference, I heard the style described as "mature Lolita with less frills with more historical influence"... a bit more sophisticated, I suppose? I know it will not classify as Lolita, which is not the look I'm going for. I like the longer skirt, lack of bows and general absence of... kawaii desu-ness.
Prop commissions coming soon!
