Can I just say I am totally in love with The Sew Weekly's "Make This Look" Series. I'm totally jealous I didn't think of it first;) Mena is a genius.
Basically she takes a dress from say....Modcloth then shows you how to replicate it with a current pattern and online fabric.
These are just a few of her past looks. Check out The Sew Weekly for all past MTLs.
Still can't rave enough about the look of her site!
