I Remade my Dream Designer Dress!!

Original Designer                 vs.                My Rendition

At the start of Quarantine (back in March) I threw myself back into sewing and extending my knowledge of design and sewing techniques. I have created MANY THINGS since then, but my favorite project has definitely been recreating one of my dream dresses, this Strawberry Tulle dress, from the New York designer Lirika Matoshi. 
I have been following this designer on Instagram for about a year and have always loved all the dresses, especially the strawberry tulle one, so I decided to try and make it myself. This was definitely a project a bit outside my comfort zone since I had never worked with tulle or sequins before, but it ended up being easier than I thought! 
I started my project by making a muslin mock up of the bodice, using pattern pieces I had adapted from my slopper set. After I had worked out the adjustments on my bodice I started on my dress, which involved a LOT of gathering, layering, and problem solving. I ended up using about 5 yards of each tulle fabric and absolutely LOVE how it turned out! 
I filmed a video of my sewing process / part tutorial for this dress, so if you want to see all the details that went into this project, just hop on over to my YouTube


Have you ever remade a dress that you saw?
What else should I remake?
