So, I went dress shopping for my brother's wedding with my mother today, and she found one thing that she really liked, but of course was too small. Here's my frankenpattern solution:

Looks good to me - almost an exact replica in fact!

Too bad the RTW contest is over! Good luck and show us when you're done, please.

Looks like a great plan to me. Just do a first draft in muslin to make sure the band is right and it fits together as you want. Bet your version will look better than the store's. :)

Good Job, what a great fit. I love the color.
I think it is time to change your status from "Advanced Beginner" to "Intermediate"
