The inspiration dress:
The Charabia Emilie Dress. The brand is not one I’m very familiar with, but I liked this dress and thought it would be fun to do my own version. I didn’t have the mirrored paillettes like the original, so I used sequins instead.
Here’s my version:
Mine is obviously not pink. It’s black linen. I sewed the sequins on one by one. That was the hardest part!
The dress closes in the back with a snap.
If you would like to purchase the original Charabia dress it’s on sale for $139.99. It was $239.99, so that’s a bargain, huh?
I love taking a designer outfit and making my own version. When you think about it, that’s where most designs come from – something someone has seen that inspires them. Then they just make it their own, like I did here.
