Speaking of Copying Ready-to-Wear...

In last week's post, I shared with you the gorgeous dress that Caroline (from Chile) copied from a Dolce & Gabbana original using her perfect-fitting SFD bodice and skirt.  You all know that when you have a tried and true basic bodice and skirt pattern, that you really can copy expensive ready-to-wear designs and know they are going to fit.
Inspiration...let's take a look at this dress.
this Inspiration Dress from Lafayette 148 sells for $598

And the woman who copied it sews her own clothes, though not with Sure-Fit Designs.  Her name is Carolyn - and her blog is Dairy of a Sewing Fanatic.  You might be interested in seeing her accomplishments.

Here's both the front and back views and she looks great in this dress.

How easy this would be to draw the same design lines on your SFD bodice & skirt.

I hope this inspires you to look to ready-to-wear for ideas and sew with confidence.

Happy Sewing!
