Nice dress! Youd did a fantastic job on it. What was the orignal pattern that you used for the bodice?

Nice work, mom! Isn't it great when you are able to come thru? This is the perfect knock-off.

Kudos on the fabulous knock-off! I agree that a black cotton sateen would make a fun LBD.

CindyAnn- I used McCalls 5800 (used before in the LBD pr) for the bodice and skirt. The bodice in 5800 has princess seams and the original jcrew does not. So I placed the pattern pieces like a puzzle and eliminated the princess seam. be sure to add ease. Then I used 1/2 the skirt pattern piece instead of a front and a back. It worked fine but I did have to shuffle the bodice piece a little as I fit D. Hope this helps!

What a great take-off!! It looks EXACTLY the same, & for sure, at a fraction of the retail cost. Your daughter #2 should give you a chance after such success.
