What an amazing process you went through to achieve this knockoff. Now will you produce the pattern for me? I love this.

I can't vote as I haven't been a member long enough, but if I could I would vote for your dress.

What a unique, interesting dress! I really love the way the asymmetrical lines are emphasized by the drape. All your work paid off.

You have really risen to face the challenge of replicating that design. I so enjoyed following along as you were making all those dresses.

Just WHO'S knocking off WHOM here? :o) This is fabulous and, just as Dorothy says, so YOU. :o) I love the colors, too. (It's been so long since I've commented on PR, I'm almost too embarassed TO comment, but here I am anyway!) BRAVO!

I had a look at your blog pictures and I can really see how the "evolution" of the drape and lines developed through all your muslins towards your final product. Really wonderful! Congrats!

So much work, but it turned out great! I bet you feel great when you wear this. I love the asymetrical cut!

Peggy, the final product is spectacular - so YOU! You carry the dress and the to-die-for earrings fantastically well. I like your choice of fabric and colors. They work very well. I bet this dress would also work in a silk noil. You should be very proud of this endeavor.
