Great knock-off. It is funny how the "look for less" was over $600. Your outfit looks better.

This skirt is gorgeous on you! Thanks for explaining how you tapered at the knee by tracing down, it worked great!

So cute! And thanks for reminding me I have B5187 in my stash. Time to dig that one out!

I'm so inspired by you all and your kind words. I don't sew a thing until I've consulted all your reviews of wisdom! Thanks so much.

You've absolutely got my vote - what an unbelievably fabulous job you've done! Love your outfit :)

Fantastic outfit and couldn't agree more that your version is better than the inspiration outfit! I know this is a review for the skirt but I am loving the jacket! I tried this jacket a few months ago with miserable results. Now that I see yours, I may go back and try to salvage it. Well done!!

Great outfit! And you made ALL the pieces! That's hot! Not everyone can wear that "form fitting" of a skirt but you're rockin' it. I'd be giddy too! Nice work!

I like your outfit! Very fresh. Don't you love the suggestion to save $ by spending almost $700. on an outfit? As if. Always wondered who they were talking to.

How did I miss this?! This has to be one of my favorite PR outfits ever. I love everything about it, and I so wish I could wear a high-waisted pencil skirt! You look great.

You are fabulous in this photo! And you even found the red door! Isn't it fun to save hundreds of dollars knocking off expensive looks?

love the gathered panels on the skirt, unusual colour combination but as Tim Gunn would say, you made it work.

Beautiful! Better than the magazine photo! I really like the gathering on the sides.
