Progress Report for optimistic
Contest: Knock-Off Contest - 2011     Managed By: Imaan

  Photo Pattern Used Points Items Made Yardage Used Description Last Updated
1 New Look:Misses' Dresses (Dresses) 1 1.000 1.500 So this is my attempt at a designer knockoff. I have done these before. I knocked off some St. John's shorts earlier this year and they came out great. I also knocked off some Gucci pants which came out great as well. This time, I decided to step up the level of difficulty and knock off a David Meister dress. I saw this dress on Neiman Marcus/Saks and it was for sale for about $300. I used New Look 6968 View B as my base pattern. This pattern was perfect because I would only need to draft a front top piece. Who knew how hard that would be! Definitely harder than I thought. But I finally got a dress together and I think I am better for the experience. I really want to advance my sewing skills beyond the basic, so this is just the beginning of doing that. 5/24/11 2:37 PM
