Anglomania Knock-Off Striped Jersey Dress: Version 2.0

Read about my first attempt in my previous blog post.

I got it right this time around! Learning from my previous mistakes, I made sure to double, triple, and quadruple check to make sure that the ruchings went on opposite sides from each other.  I've also sized up the top half of the tunic pattern in order to get the slouchy fit just right. I can't say it's 100% identical to the actual Anglomania striped dress, but it looks pretty damn close enough.

Fabric is navy blue and silver peony striped jersey fabric from Girl Charlee. Said fabric has surprisingly little stretch for a knit fabric, but it still fits me well enough. It's a little sheer, so I will need to use a slip underneath.
On a closing note, I must stress that I do not condone making knock-off designer clothing and accessories for profit. The dresses pictured above and in my previous post were created strictly for personal use and nothing more, as I was unable to find the actual designer dress to purchase.
