I sure hope this is legal.
Anyway, I don't need to tell anyone how wonderfully beautiful Anthropologie's clothing is. I also don't need to tell anyone how expensive it is. I did a quick search here, and a lot of people have been using them for....um.... inspiration. I was wondering if maybe people would like to do a sewalong and.........uhm..... completely and blatantly rip-off a design with me? No, that sounds bad. How could you say that nicely? Hmmmm... I'm all for supporting a person's good idea, but I don't have the cash. So yeah.
Anyway, I think this could be fun. I don't want to really say one particular design. I say, everyone pick one that they like and go for it... and post your results when you are done.
Anyone up for it? The design that I have been eyeing for a while is the edwardian coat.http://www.anthropologie.com/jump.jsp?itemID=6769&itemType=PRODUCT&iMainCat=12&iSubCat=311&previous=1
Although that one will take a while. I also MIGHT alter the sleeves somehow... Make them shorter maybe? Or I'll just do full length.
Ok, so there is my challenge. Anyone want to join me? Remember, it doesn't have to be that specific coat... It can be any design.
Oh, and Mods: .... if this is just very illegal and wrong, feel free to delete this post.
As one who uses Anthopologie as inspiration all the time, I'm love to. I've done jewelery and bags but no clothing yet. I'm (ahem) a little older than most of you here so I'll probably choose something more conservative. Designers look to other designers for inspiration all the time. There are entire businesses that exist by replicating designer fashions at mass market prices ,they call it "knocking off". ::)Chances are Anthropologie is knocking off some other designers as well.
