Amazing knock-off. Your fabric choices are spot-on, and this dress looks fab on you!!

Wow. I'm just speechless. Um. I think what I want to say is that it's amazing that you overcame all the challenges involved in making this dress - losing the inspiration photo, placing the seams, 29 pattern pieces, matching the fabrics, doing a photoshoot that looks just like the model... Well done.

What a good knock-off

Perseverance and patience you must have in spades. What a mammoth task but you completed it so fabulously. Congratulations on your wonderful dress. Super matching on the back seam. Actually I can't believe they would advertise their own dress so mismatched! I just love it and I am really glad you are so thrilled with it too. This is why we sew.

What a sensational knock-off! Wow! I just went to your blog and girl, I don't think I'd have the patience you did, I'm amazed! Great photo too! Looks like you had a lot of fun! :)

I so enjoyed reading your blog post describing the making of this fabulous dress. You had a vision and saw it through to the end. How fun to have your family's help with the photo shoot. Congratulations on a knock out knock off.

Fabulous dress!!! Great job on re-creating the Ribkoff dress.

Wow, a really stunning knock-off, looks just like the original (or better) and great idea to use the lining.

WOW!! This is a showstopper! What a fantastic dress and much cuter than the original! Love your fabric combos! Great job...good luck with the contest!

Absolutely awesome! Hard to tell the original from yours - really great looking dress

Fantastic dress. Love it!!!

Using the lining pattern was a great idea for this dress.I would have never thought of it! I love everything about this project. Your fabric choice, the fit and of course the photo shoot :)

What a knock off!! You did a fantastic job and what a detective getting the picture of the dress back and finding your fabric pieces! Really cute!!!

Great job on your RTW knockoff!

Thank you Dee2!!! You guys are so nice, you're slowly gonna make me love the dots, too. :)
Dee2 said... (2/26/13 4:52 PM) Reply
I really like your version better than the original! Love your fabric choices & placement & the dots really are a great addition.
kealoha said... (2/26/13 4:50 PM) Reply
Oh wow. Thank you so much blessedtosew! One of the things I cried about was not finding a white on black cheetah print, so that makes me feel so much better about the polka dots.
blessedtosew said... (2/26/13 4:38 PM) Reply
That is so awesome!!! I love the way you worked polka dot fabric in. I like yours better than the original.

Thank you ConnieBJ! I would absolutely kill for some hips and curves! But thank you for the compliment :)
ConnieBJ said... (2/26/13 4:16 PM) Reply
LOVE IT! The fabric choices are perfect. It was a smashing idea to use the lining part of the pattern- I'm not sure I would have thought of that! Of course I hate that you have no hips though!
