My inspiration was this faux wrap dress, originally nearly $2K it's on sale now for just $850.50!

I used Vogue 8784, View B, without a collar or sleeves. I posted a review of the pattern itself in Pattern Reviews


The obvious difference is fabric. Oscars is a satiny modern tulip print. Mine is cotton bark cloth, in a traditional Hawaiian print.

Another difference is that the description of the designer dress says "faux wrap", and this dress really is a wrap. The pattern calls for lots of tucks at the tummy area. I wish I would have drafted all the tucks out of the lining, and maybe even out of the hidden under layer. I haven't seen this dress in person, but I'll bet it's made without the excess tucks.
