$300.00 Scarf Dress for only $20.00

I went to City Creek Center last week for the first time and fell in love with that mall. Now I can't wait to be done with finals so I can get back to the mall and do some shopping for summer. While I was at City Creek I went into BCBG and fell in love with this dress...

Only problem was I could not afford the $278.00 price tag. :(

That week in draping class it was a 'free drape' meaning we could make any item we wanted, so I decided to try and make my own version of this beautiful scarf dress. It was little more complicated than I had planned and there were a few hiccups along the way, but I forged through and this is the final result.
What do you think?

Dress has a square yoke front neckline, wide-princess seam lines with draped kimono style panels, drawstring waist with tie.

I purchased this fabric at Hancock's, they also have it in purple and greens. This dress was headache to make but I love how it turned out and I think I will make it again in the purple fabric.

New technique I learned while making this dress:

Sewing with Bias Tape. Believe it or not I have never used bias tape before. I originally made an armhole facing, but it was bulky so I swapped that for bias tape.

Thanks for checking out this blog, hope I didn't bore you to death. 

Bow good or bad?
