You have a lot of really beautiful ideas. I can see why people would want to use them. But, if they do copy your ideas then they need to give you credit!!! This is especially true now that ideas get 1% of sales and not the 50 dollars. If you think about it; you give Chic Star an idea and you get a promise of 1% if the ideas is incorporated into a winning design. As things are right now. Somebody else can come along and copy your idea and past it on to a different template. Chic Star gives that person $1.00 for the template-submission with your idea incorporated in it. You as the original idea owner get nothing.... Then if that design wins the person who took your idea will get 5% of sales and you will get nothing. On the other hand if the person who copied your idea gives you credit in the submission description, then you will get 1% of sales like you were originally promised. So it is really important for people using other peoples ides to give them credit in the description. Otherwise they are just taking the idea and getting all the profit ( $1 for the copied-idea template submission and all the 5% of sales). Where as the original idea owner is getting nothing. :(
Michelle I suggest you let Chic Star know on any ideas of yours that have been used by others! I suggest this to any idea owner that sees their ideas/designs being used without credit being given in the submissions description! It is the only way that I know of that you will get the promised 1% credit for your idea. The system should not work this way.. And it is not what is promised when you submit ideas to Chic Star. But the current system is kinda not working.... I really hope Chic Star Can fix it!!! reply

Amber, I too have had multiple ppl using my.designs without being given credit. Actually a few ppl copied & pasted my designs! And 2 of my ideas are templates but instead of receiving $50 each I'll get 1% of the sales if it wins. Which I think is nonsense. But to be fair the ppl who DO design should get more money than those who submit ideas. reply

Yes, it will be brought back to stock in black. But we do not currently have plans to reproduce this item any time soon, so we are not sure when we will restock it. Thank you. reply
I agree with your comments. This was an idea from a beautiful 1940s blouse picture that I sent to Chic Star. They accepted the Idea only and not any of the alters made to the Idea. As the original Idea owner, they did not let me work with the Design team on this prototype at all. Usually on Accepted Designs we get to work with the Design Team to try and get the prototype as close to the original design as possible before it goes to auction. But on Accepted Ideas Chic star does not let you work with the Design Team. Thanks much for all your comments! Its nice to know I am not the only one who sees this blouse is off center. I am glad some people like it anyway. I really hope CS can fix it! reply
To the designer of this top alter. I noticed that you used my corset drawing on your design submission. I am ok with you using my designs/art and ideas in your design submissions. But I would greatly appreciate it if you could give credit to my original design/ideas when you do so. The waist you used here was drawn by me. You can see my design/art work here: http://www.chicstar.com/community/designscore.aspx?id=71921
I am ok with you using my art and am glad you like it! But can you please give credit in your description to the design/idea images of any designers that you are using? If your design wins and you have used other peoples ideas/ designs they should get some of the credit for their work too.
I used this design as an example, but I have noticed a bunch of others with other peoples ideas/designs being used and no credit being given to the origional design or idea owner.
On a side note. I really like this deign combo that you came up with :) Its real cute and I voted yes. :)
I keep hoping for a restock of this item. reply

Gorgeous design. Is it just me--or does it look odd to have the buttons offset from the point of the lace? Amber's sketch looks better balanced to me. reply

Gorgeous top, but it looks really off having the buttons offset from the center point of the lace overlay. reply
When this jacket will be restocked ?
It's a bestseller here, in France. Thanks. reply

I like the idea of having pockets in this. reply
I like this longer version very much. I would love to see a higher collar on this jacket. It gets really cold where I live, so it's important to be warm while looking fantastic! reply
