By far one of the most professional pieces I've seen here. I'm by far no ace my self but I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed reading your description of your whole thought process and clear description and including photographs. I felt as though I was reading a novel, I was sad that ended. But when I saw again what you had created at the end of that process, well, I was just taken aback. You truly have created here not merely "knocked off" I do hope you capitolize on the spark that you have. Don't let the embers lose their glow, fan them until they brighten.

I've loved reading about your design process. Had to laugh out loud about the print knit in a wrap dress part - I applaud you for liberating the print from the wrap! It's a great dress and wonderful knock-off.

Great take on the designer original. I like your's better. It is more wearable. And I agree that the contrast takes advantage of the design more than the solid dark.

Wow, amazing job! I love your final dress, far more than the original, which looks dull and boring in comparison.

Amazing job. I aspire to your skills and patience in creating something of your own.

This dress is really nice. I am jealous of your knock-off talent.

NiceGirl, you did it again! I adore your twist and interpretation of what's current! It is about time to create your own line of clothes and make a name for yourself! Also you definitely are beautiful that you can model almost anything! Your dress is creative genius! Thanks for being a wonderful inspiration for all of us! ~ Louella

Well, you have done it again---taken a unused fabric from your stash and turned it into something fabulous!!! Great review and wonderful job on the dress, which you could replace that runway model with.

So, for real, have you considered Project Runway? I like yours way better than the Ferrari.

Awesome drafting job and you've almost nailed the model's sulky mean facial expression.

I admire your determination and perserverance. It looks like you "nailed" the binding pieces. The contrast looks nice.

It's GORGEOUS - the muslin and the final versions. The dress so feminine and suits you perfectly.
