Make Mine A Knock-Off!“Make mine a knockoff” will be a random series of posts of fashions found in magazines, websites or catalogs with suggested patterns and fabrics to make your own “knockoff” version.This picture was found in Essence magazine o2/09 issue. I don’t know the designer.

A closer look

Vogue 8351 is a very good knockoff pattern.

Detail ShotsLike the pattern, the sleeves are 3/4 length and have a cuff. Just remove the gathers from the sleeves or trace the bottom of a straight sleeve pattern.

It always hard to tell from a drawing on a pattern, but I think there are fewer gathers at the empire waist of this dress.

The shoulders have a couple of tucks….

…which makes the neckline wider across the shoulders.

I think this dress would look good with flats/sandals for shopping or a pair of heels for dinner and a night out on the town.Fabric Suggestion58″100% Rayon Matte JerseyDesigner–Eileen FisherWas 21.00 Now 10.50
