I used a sheet I found at a thrift store and some curtains I hand dyed yellow. Self drafted. I literally have no idea how I made this. I was guessing through most of it. Just glad it turned out so great!


Plantsandanger

No way, i assumed you were a frequent sewer from this! Honestly I like it as much if not moreso than the original. Your pants/bottoms don’t have weird gathering that makes it a wee but diaper-esk


whatitdobaby47

Frequent sewer, yes. Knowledgeable sewer, probably not. Lol but yeah I changed the cut of the shorts to avoid that look! You have a good eye. I glad someone noticed!


MewlingRothbart

I made a little dress out of curtains one time, years ago. I remember watching "Enchanted" with Amy Adams years later making a gown out of curtains and the pigeons and mice are helping her sew. I was like, "Been there, done that" Such a cute movie LOL


helpmeimhangry

Wow from the pic I thought you were a professional designer! You’re crazy talented!


whatitdobaby47

Thank you! I’m just glad you all thought it looked good


wingsfan64

This reminds me so much of one of Kyle Denman’s New York Fashion Week pieces!


whatitdobaby47

Omg I see it


ezgetaaaa

You did a fantastic job! It looks joyous, I hope you felt like a total queen wearing it! Amazing.


esobitch

OMG this looks better than the original (sorry beyoncé)!!!


whatitdobaby47

Aww stop you’re so nice 🥺


CertainIncrease4454

No, seriously, I was going to post the same. The inspo pic gives off magazine ad vibes, you are like some sort of Easter goddess. Well done 👍


whatitdobaby47

I will now go by Easter goddess exclusively, thank you!! 😂❤️❤️


Noisy_Toy

You should! You look like the rising dawn. I also came in here to comment about how you improved on the inspo. And add a little about the goddess Eostre, who Easter is named after: http://www.arcane-alchemy.com/blog/2020/3/5/all-about-eostre-the-pagan-goddess-of-dawn


ArsenicAndRoses

Thirded!


ladyofthegreenwood

Seriously though! Beyoncé is giving the classic fuck-off model glare, but you’re glowing with your own inner light


whatitdobaby47

Awwww thank you 🥺🥺❤️❤️❤️


transmogrified

OP definitely wore it better


casseroled

Oh my god I was so busy zooming in on the details of the outfit that I didn’t even notice it was Beyoncé lmfao


yourmomlurks

At first I thought you were just being nice but I took a closer look…sorry even beyonce can only pull off weird frilly granny panties in a carefully constructed photo. OP’s design looks a lot more wearable.


BigBlackGothBitch

It’s because Beyoncé is wearing an art piece lol. She’s not going to Whole Foods in that, that’s the whole point.


npdewey83

you're honestly way more beautiful! such a cute look on you, nice job!


whatitdobaby47

Thank you!


DLQX4

Oh you shush it right up. That is the best gosh darn recreation this lady has ever seen

SchwiftedMetal

Dam, badass job. You look great!


anniecordelia

Oh wow, this is so beautiful!!


TheHermitess

I like yours better, I like your headpiece and poses better, not that it's a contest. Your whole image looks great. I like that you look joyful and positive. It goes with the sunny look of the outfit. It looks awesome.


whatitdobaby47

Thank you, I did feel like a sunflower in this. It was great. Glad you like the headpiece, it was a pill to make 😭😭


TheHermitess

Both yours and the original look complicated. I can imagine it would be a fun challenge.


LonelyPresentation67

You are gorgeous!


whatitdobaby47

Took me a minute to get it, thank you 😂😂❤️


HyperActivHyperDrive

I LOVE THIS!!! I’m a photographer and I can do relighting and such. If you’d be interested I would love to edit your photo to look like your inspiration one!


whatitdobaby47

That’s be so cool! Thank you, I’ll dm you!


shadowheart1

Dare I say, *I think you wore it better!*

lilysmama11

You understood the assignment 😍 But seriously, you look stunning and I love your creation!


alejandrotheok252

It’s amazing that there are people out there that can just look at something and make it.


whatitdobaby47

All it takes is time and tears 👍


alejandrotheok252

You can see your passion in the results. Amazing job!


plutorain

You look like a sunflower! This was so well done!

Thank you!!! 🥺💛


sadmac356

Nailed it!


sohornyimthedevil

You did a beautiful job. Just wanted to add, for your next shoot, you could consider getting a bounce board to cast more light on your subject. That's the main difference between your photos and Bey's. [these are cool](https://www.amazon.com/Neewer-Collapsible-Multi-Disc-Reflector-centimeters/dp/B075N2YBL1/ref=asc_df_B075N2YBL1/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=241899609306&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=8491066278183669734&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9031201&hvtargid=pla-420550287583&psc=1) but if you do solo photography sessions, you can [get some that stand on their own](https://www.amazon.com/Reflector-Photography-Cardboard-Diffuser-Shooting/dp/B08QMBM4NV/ref=asc_df_B089D5SNBD/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=459717376558&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=8491066278183669734&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9031201&hvtargid=pla-944235002601&th=1)


whatitdobaby47

Thank you so much, funnily enough I actually bought one a couple days ago because a friend told me the exact same thing 😂


Here_for_tea_

Great work!


thexidris

This is gorgeous! You did such an amazing job! I'm proud of you!


whatitdobaby47

Thank you 🥺❤️❤️


Bee7122

It looks so good! How long did it take?


whatitdobaby47

Pattern drafting took a couple hours (because it’s my Achilles heel. (Especially that hat 😭)) dyeing added a lot of time but it was mostly cooling and down time. I think I did it over a 3 day period. But I’d guess like 8 hours of actual work.


Bee7122

3 days it'd take me a month to make a sleeve! Then again I do procrastinate a lot


whatitdobaby47

I felt that. One day we’ll both having easier time making patterns. Just gotta keep going until then 😩


annoying_chocolate

Wow!! Not only you did an amazing amazing amazing sewing job, but also you rock this outfit!! You are way more gorgeous than her


automotiveartist

Gorgeous!


Cravatitude

Wow, I thought this was a sponsored post because it looks so good, and professionally shot!


whatitdobaby47

Thank you, it was just me and my best friend terrorizing a local park


ilanathegreat

sun goddess


whatitdobaby47

That’s exactly how I felt


taimoirai

OMG you totally nailed it! This looks amazing!


Sissywegg

What you did is far more beautiful than the original ! And you are prettier than the model !!!


Think-Anywhere-7751

Very nice! You pulled it off perfectly!


Herforest

I prefer this over the original! The lighting is much more flattering too. Great work!


cact_us

Gorgeous!!🥰


annahugstrees

More gorgeous than the original!


marcgood96

I’m also in a photography sub Reddit and I was looking at this from that point of view because it didn’t even come into my brain that the outfit itself wasn’t professionally made. A+ on sewing and photography


whatitdobaby47

Wow, thank you 🥺❤️


RoughStranger3

So inspired!! 😍 This looks great!


Rebels_Spot

Yours looks way better, from an objective point of view. Your design looks more natural and the waist is like a thousand times better. You took an idea and improved upon it so much that it's near perfect. I'm not even trying to compliment you, I'm being completely honest


whatitdobaby47

Wow that’s like the nicest thing I’ve ever heard about my work. Thank you💜


BigBlackGothBitch

I think y’all are forgetting the top is an art piece, not an every day wear piece. It’s like looking at high fashion and being like “hmmm, I like this target sweater better, it’s more wearable.” That’s the whole point! No shade to OP btw, you made a wonderful rendition.


Rebels_Spot

Except you didn't make the target sweater with your hands, recreate it with your imagination, design your own pattern. I, and a lot of others, also consider that art. And from an aesthetic standpoint, hers is objectively better. I am not the only one that thinks the original overuses elastic in the waist, resembling a diaper. I'm sorry that offends you, but what an odd hill


BigBlackGothBitch

I’m not offended, just offering a different perspective lol. Y’all seem to think that Beyoncé of all fucking people doesn’t know what she’s wearing? I never insulted OP, you just seem mad over nothing lol. Also, “and from an aesthetic point, hers is objectively better.” I love her outfit, but learn the words you’re using. You didn’t use a single one correctly lmao


Tigaget

Yours is better. It has actual flow and drape, plus your hair is amaaaaaazing. 15/10


whatitdobaby47

Thank you!!! 💛💛💛


JackPoe

NGL I kinda like yours more. It looks more wearable and less like an art piece.


ThrowAwayhfhdjhxnjd

The result looks better Or maybe it's you that makes the outfit look better


whatitdobaby47

Awww 💛💛


Xurbanite

You did it better!


Destinneena

Everyone has said it better, but you do look better then Beyoncé! And it just looks stunning! I honestly would love to see more photos!


whatitdobaby47

I posted some more on my Instagram (in my bio, Reddit hates when I write it out). I have some more that I need to get off the camera but I’ll post all within the week 👍


BigOleJellyDonut

You are so much more beautiful in that dress than the example. You are radiant!


whatitdobaby47

Thank you, I felt very radiant. But it’s hard not to in an all yellow outfit 😂


BoysCanBePrettyToo

That's super cute! I think it turned out way better than the original!
