Duplicate Your Dress - How To Turn One Dress Into Two!

I really, really like the style of this vintage polka dot dress that I bought from Ebay a couple of weeks ago. So I thought that I'd try to "reverse-engineer" the pattern and make myself the same dress in multiple different fabrics! It worked out pretty well!

Check out the video below, for tips and tricks on duplicating your own dresses (or tops, I guess! That would also probably work.)

p.s. The dress I’m to recreating is quite free-fitting and pretty simply made (and doesn't have separate sleeves which made my life a LOT easier, haha) - this method would be a bit harder if the dress was super fitted or had darts, so if you’re going to try this out, for the first time I suggest you try and copy a fairly loose-fitting item of clothing. 

I hope that you're all having a lovely day,

  1. The economic implications of this dress are mind boggling, seriously. Less hanger space, the same amount of washing for two dresses- what could be better for the environment?? :3

  2. Thank you so much for this!
    I've been wanting to duplicate a dress I have and really like but didn't really know how ^_^

  3. Definitely going to try this out. Would be awesome if you could share some tips on sewing with knits, I am awful at it and always make a huge mess.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a message! I read every single one. Don't forget to check back for a reply if you leave a question! ♥
