Of course that made me realize I'd never blogged the final week- the Copy Cat version. Yes, I know its June but hey, its my blog, so whatever I want!
The final week of Just for Me January was to Knock it Off. I chose this gorgeous dress from JCrew.
you can see the rest of the collection here- J.Crew Spring and Summer 2015
Anyway, my inspiration was wonderfully beaded and decorated but I wanted to use the inspiration for a swim coverup. Something much simpler. So I chose a floral voile fabric I found in the Red Tag Section of JoAnns.
The inspiration had a cut on sleeve or dropped shoulder thing going on, I decided to do the cut on style for simplicity. I took the shoulder seams and drew them out.
Easy peasy. Then I cut the floral pieces out and skinny-ed up the facing to match the inspiration.
I used the pockets from the nightgown Patricia. I topped the with some white fabric and ta-da, my Knock-it-Off!
While I do love it, its a little more mumu than chic dress. Oh well. I am planning to add elastic to the back to shape it a little bit. Hopefully that looks better otherwise it will end up as another comfy nightgown.
