I can safely say that this is something of a style departure for me, even though I have always liked black and white and graphic prints. For one thing it's a more mature look, plus I feel super rich in a 80's kind of way. Just wish it was more of a reality too!
I did a pretty literal knock-off of a classic Diane von Fürstenberg dress. Or as close as I could, since there is very little info on how they are constructed, though this Ebay guide (in five parts) was somewhat helpful. I think of all the wrap dress patterns that I investigated the Onion is probably the closest to the real deal, especially if you want to use binding like in this DVF dress. Most other pattern has both darts and a waist seem, which the original doesn't have. At least not the current DVF styles.
