For the second time, the wonderful Heidi of Elegance and Elephants is hosting a Knock Off series. I was very happy to be invited again, and decided that I would give a pair of Marilyn Tov sleeves a try. This NYC-based brand makes stunning girls’ and women’s clothes, generally in creamy or greyish colors, and always with lovely details.
The sleeves I tried to knock off are a great example of Marilyn Tov’s style: they look deceptively simple, and add such a nice touch to an otherwise simple dress.
I’m not very much into pinkish or creamy garments, so I decided to use a white fabric with very subtle dots.
The result doesn’t look exactly like the original, and this is mainly because I put in the sleeves backwards: the part you see in the front, is actually in the back (and thus not on the picture) in the original dress. I liked the back part better than the front part because the layers were better visible there.
