Jeez, you ARE a dish! That is definitely a knock off if there ever was one! Amazing dress; be very, very proud of your work!

One word is enough: breath taking... well that is two words. Ok lets do it again: one expression is enough: superbe ! I agree with dvmcindy really, really though to beat. Great, great dress, you look fabulous with it.

I'm sure glad you labeled the orginal and your version; I wouldn't have been able to figure out which was which. Fabulous!

This is so fabulous, I agree with Karla, it's pretty hard to tell which one is the original!

I actually like yours better. The neckline accents the sleeves and shoulders better. Fabulous job on the sleeves.

Ohmy goodness - I had a hard time figuring out which was the knock off then realised th ebetter one was yours - Bravo Miss Dish!!

Love the witty label on photo to go with your great dress.

Stitchcakes said...
I know everybody says this, but yours really is better! The RTW is too 'designer-y' with that sleeve volume at the shoulder. Yours is much more wearable. The sleeve length is better, too.

This is a knock out dress. Much better than the original. The sleeves are to die for. Very inspiring.

Dear Hard-Core Crafter: :o) I, as well, LOVE your dress! The black-and-white combination is so striking and the design incorporated into the sleeves gives as nice flow. Just beautiful. Now get to crocheting that cap!

Strikingly Fabulous.

Love it! You not only interpreted it but made it even better! And I truly believe what is custom made should be BETTER than ready to wear!

Well Ms Dish, how you transformed that elemental McCalls pattern into this intricate and stunning dress has to be the Eighth Wonder of the World! To say you have "vision" is to say that Picasso dabbled in paints. Nothing short of breathtaking! -Lily

I love this dress! I wonder, how difficult was it to make the curved sleeve pieces without stretching? Did Ms. Dish use iron stabilizer???

Lilianne said...
Congratulations! The dress looks fabulous. How clever to make the design changes that you did. I too would have faced it the way you did. Good luck on your next project.
