Progress Report for kealoha
Contest: RTW/Designer Knockoff Contest     Managed By: Terri A

  Photo Pattern Used Points Items Made Yardage Used Description Last Updated
1 Vogue Patterns:Misses' Dress (Dresses) 1 1.000 1.500 I fell in love with this Joseph Ribkoff mixed media houndstooth dress when I saw it in a magazine a few Christmases ago.
To replicate it, I took a very simple knit dress pattern (Vogue 1314 by Tracy Reese - the lining pattern), and used it to create the perfect fit. I made 3 muslins in a attempt to do this. I, then, worked with the pattern and spliced it up to recreate the printed pieces of the Ribkoff dress. I made one muslin with different colored t-shirts to test the pattern pieces and placement. For the knock-off I used 5 prints and black interlock to try to match the original as closely as possible. I made a few substitutions because some prints were so hard to find in knit. To try to replicate it exactly, I made piping and bias tape from black interlock to sandwich between each print and create the finishing stripe down the arms. I used an invisible zipper and careful print matching to create an invisible back seam and finished the hems with my twin needle. It was a great experience making this contest piece. The most fun I had was trying to duplicate the media photo with sheets and blankets in my cousin's apartment. Hope you enjoy the piece, it's something that I'm so proud of!
