Accidental CopyCat - Sex And The City Carrie Dress?

I'm still nowhere near figuring out what to make for my July MAGAM project. However, something funny happened yesterday. Apparently I did an Accidental CopyCat fashion of a Sex And the City dress!

I don't watch TV much. I'm not really familiar with the popular TV shows. And even when I watch TV, I mostly watch odd ball stuff on PBS, CBC and TVO. I was showing a friend my DIY wedding dress photos and she said, 'Oh you made the Carrie Dress!' I said, 'Sorry?' She said, 'Yeah you made that dress Carrie wore with Aidan in front of the water fountain!' I said, 'huh?' She said, 'Carrie from Sex And The City!'

I guess I still looked puzzled so she pulled out her phone and searched for the pictures on the web. And here they are:

I guess I did a Copycat Wedding Dress without knowing it! Apparently I made the exact same Badgley Mischka wedding dress that Carrie was wearing in the show. Although because of her figure, I think the dress looked a bit different on her. The front swoop on her is lower than on mine (probably because I'm more full busted and barrel chested). But it just shows how good the pattern Vogue 2237 is - because it suits a short and wide torso like mine, and as well as a very trim figure like Sarah Jessica Parker!

Disclaimer: I'm not getting any commission from Vogue Patterns. But if you are looking for a wedding dress  sewing pattern, have a look at Vogue 2237! I just check the Vogue pattern web site and they are still selling it in their current collection.

Okay! Back to searching for inspiration for my July MAGAM project......
