I have always been interested in "knocking off" unusual designer looks so was delighted when Pattern Review announced they would be running a "best knock-off contest" from May 1 to May 30.
Here is the design I want to knock-off:
Of course there is no pattern existing that is remotely like this so I'm going to have to experiment with some drafting and draping. First though, I wanted to get something that had the right neckline and sleeves. I used these patterns for inspiration for the off-center v neckline and different length sleeves.
I made up a muslin out of black knit, being sure to make the neckline vee point the same way as the original design.
I plan to use the pattern I made of the asymmetrical neckline and sleeves for my knockoff. This was the easy part though! Now I just have to figure out how to put that unusual drape with the blue and grey onto the dress----stay tuned for the next report. I'm loving this challenge!
