I found this dress (http://www.anthropologie.com/anthro/catalog/productdetail.jsp?id=73615&navAction=jump&search=true ) on Anthropologie, but I wasn't about to pay $300 for it. So I sketched out my own and made it for $40 instead. I absolutely love the way it turned out, I almost cried when I was fitting it because it looked so much like the real dress. Oh, and I used Simplicity pattern 3676 as a base but I altered it so much I don't even have the original pieces anymore.

My sketch:



Sorry about the lighting:



Detail of the bodice:



So I'm thrilled about wearing it to upcoming Christmas parties. Let me know what you think!
Thanks!
