I can't tell which is the original, which is testament to your excellent work. Is the red one the copy? They both look great and indeed, you got a great fit.

Thank you for your generous comments. I really enjoy doing it and yes the red one is the copy.

I am impressed with the way your plaids match across the bodice right into the sleeves. And because I tend to be a classicist, I must confess I think your fabric choice matches the style much better than the original fabric choice. If I saw this in a store, I'd want to buy it.

I wish you lived next door, I would learn so much over a cup of coffee or hot chocolate. Down to your last stitch is shown in precise seaming and matching. It's easy to see why you would want to make a copy of the beautiful dress, yet you went a above and beyond by using and working with a "on the bias " fabric. You choose a veryunforgiving fabric and style dress, you mastered it to the T. Is this your first copy, anyway you did it the end results is a pattern to make on any fabric choice. I have a house for sale down the road a piece, ill bring the hot chocolate.
