I’m interested in having my favorite dress copied (but modified to be floor length) and I wondered how complex it is to make- what do you think?

It is made from two fabrics pieced together through the length of the dress. Is this a crazy project?

    It’s a really nice design! Just wondering how badly you would like another dress? It will be fine to copy, but it will probably cost a fair bit as it looks like each panel will have to be copied and it will probably take some time to do. Sewing it will be a bit of a puzzle. It might be best to draw a picture and label all the panels with numbers, then get the pattern maker to number them the same on the pattern

    Thanks for the reply. I thought it would be complexI I’m a big fan of the dress and I would really like to have a floor length version. I’m in New York so can take it around to dressmakers, but I wanted to get an idea of what I was getting myself into!

    I agree with Deanna31! This is such a nice dress! But for me clothes with patterns are really hard to copy but if you really love it, you can get a good advice from a dressmaker.
