Our friend Molly came to us with this problem. She found a dress online, then beginning with that dress she designed the perfect one for her style with details and trims to enhance it. The first one was a vintage style dress. It has a chiffon bodice with a embossed velvet rose suiting for the skirt. The original dress was from Modcloth.
Here's the first dress we started off copying
Here's our rendition...we added lace around the collar and cuff.
And here's the 2nd dress we copied.
It is 100% dupioni silk with authentic antique lace in each pin-tuck.
