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 Shots

Like 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 Suggestion

Designer--Eileen Fisher
