RTW Knockoff Competition - Photo Shoot

As promised here I am modelling the finished dress. As a illustration of how versatile the style is, I've put together a look for each season so you can see how I might wear the dress all year round.

As it is currently winter in my neck of the woods, I'll start with my winter look. This is probably how I'll wear the dress for the next month or so. The dress works well as a layering garment as it it neat fitting enough to wear with cardigans and jackets but has enough room to slide a fine polo neck underneath. The astute among you might recognise the mermaid scarf I started ages ago and never posted when it was finished.

Next up, spring. I like how this dress is dark but not too dark so it can be worn in warmer weather without looking too heavy. This is my spring look with a simple cardi.

Summer is the 'purest' look so here is a front and back view. I am really happy with how the dress turned out. The fit is nice and it's really comfortable.

Finally my autumn look. I quite like this one, it's a bit St Trinian's although my fella (rather unkindly I felt) pointed out that I could look like a convent novice if I'm not too careful! I'll have to either use really funky accessories or maybe a non-white blouse in future.
So that's a round up on my entry. I hope you like it - I certainly do. I have found the whole project a lot of fun and very motivating, which I hope I an carry forward into my upcoming projects.

HAHAHA convent jo! I must say I do agree slightly, a non-white blouse would do the world of good though...:p Spring and Summer are my favourites, it turned out beautifully.

Your dress is great - I love how you styled it so many different ways - very versatile!

Wow! You've made so many great looks! However that last one does look a bit Von Trapp... How about a l/s colored turtleneck instead?

Your dress is fabulous, I like the different looks you've been able to get with it. In fact, you look almost "saintly" in the last one LOL. When I made this I changed the sleeves to three quarter length for winter wear, but I like your layering idea so I'll add this to my verrrry long to do list

There's nothing wrong with looking like a convent novice once in a while. Trust me, your fella secretly liked it.
