A new series that we are starting here on presserfoot is called I Could Make That. If you are like me, when I shop I am always looking at items, especially expensive ones, and trying to figure out how I could recreate it myself for much less. The pattern companies are getting better and better at creating stylish patterns and so I am going to help bring the two together. With I Could Make That we will show you the ready to wear version and then what pattern, and fabric you could use to recreate it yourself.
So, here it is, our first I Could Make That post:
Milly metallic lace shift dress ($400)
Burda Pattern Wedding Dress $5.40
Solid Gold Lace Fabric from Fashion Fabrics $5.75 / yd
What do you guys think? A steal when you compare it to the $400 version. Would you wear it? Would you make it? Just wondering. If you know of any other I Could Make That ideas please send them along.
