Make your own Modcloth Picture Perfection Dress

Check out this blue beauty from Modcloth. Not only does it cost a small fortune, but it’s sold out! Besides, why buy it when you can make it and fake it instead?

Modcloth Picture Perfection Dress: $199.99 and sold out

Pick your pattern!

Burda Young 7556

OR

McCalls 6754 (Dress C)

And although I wasn’t able to find the exact fabric, I think you could easily find a beautiful blue floral that evokes a similar feeling.

Kaffe Fassett Fall 2012 Collective Oriental Trees Blue $9.20 USD/yard (fabric.com)

Ambrosia Large Floral Blue $9.48 USD/yd (fabric.com)

Riley Blake Vintage Verona Floral Green $9.20 USD/yd (fabric.com)

Roughly 4 yards of fabric, plus lining, notions and pattern, I would estimate you could make this dress for roughly $60USD.
