Very nice knock off. I wonder what it would look like with boots?

Wonderful dress. It looks like it came straight off the runway.

Good job on the knock-off. It will be interesting to see how it looks with less full sleeves. Well done !

Thank you Lhan. I was beginning to think maybe my judgement was off on the sleeves, but I am iffy enough about them that today I picked up 3/4 yard of black cotton broadcloth to mock up another sleeve. I plan to take off one sleeve, replace it with the mock-up, then come back for advice on which to use. I'm still feeling a bit of "choir robe with sparkles". I'm thinking sleeves that have no pleats at top, and are just set in may make all the difference.

I think this is a fantastic effort. I love unusual lines and this certainly has them. I love the colour combination you used - the sequined material is just right, and the depth of colour that the wool has works beautifully with it. I agree about the fullness in the sleeves - it would be interesting to see how it would look with that adjustment. Congratulations!

What an interesting dress! What a great RTW knock-off. I enjoyed reading how you accomplished it.

Fantastic job. I agree it needs the tie for a verticle accent. Hope you enjoyed your night out.

You're right -- it is indeed very fashion forward and dramatic as well. Beautiful fabrics.

Beautiful! I like your interpretation of this Missoni dress. It looks very comfortable and stylish. Thank you for not wearing leggings. LOL.
