Has anyone ever had a favourite item of clothing copied by a dressmaker?
I have four pairs of identical trousers (only FCUK, nothing designer) that I have now worn to death but they are brilliant and I cannot bear to throw them away. Have you ever used a tailoring/dressmaking service to have a garment copied and how successful was it? Did it cost the earth?
My friend had it done through ebay - with an evening dress. She sent a picture of a dress from a film (cannot remember which one) and her measurements, and about 2 months later received the dress. She actually had 2 dresses copied from pictures - one turned out great, the other not so great. But, I imagine if you have the actual garment to send over there, then you should be gurateed a good result no?
