In my case, I feel very encouraged when I see alterations of my work, because it means that people do appreciate what I'm doing (whether it is the whole design or some of its parts). At the beginning I was a bit ashamed too to alter someone else's job, but it's because I love what the other designers do and that I want to give it another chance to be made. I think they're happy too to see that people appreciate their designs. Moreover, if your alteration is a winner, the original designer wins money too, so that's another good point. ;-) However, if a designer really doesn't want its work to be altered, he/she has an option to avoid it. So finally there is no problem! You just have to submit it as an alteration and not as an original. That's all!

Hello ladies, I have made a few alterations, some which have been nice and others awful, sorry. I always feel a bit guilty altering someones design, can anyone explain how the designer feels about this and if it is 'up' for alteration, does that mean the original has been denied ? Any help appreciated.

Dolly B, yes I give permission for it to be altered...but the thing still is under 'ended' status so that option isnt available yet. GARY OR LINA, I know this isnt going to win, so please put it as 'alter' status so people can try and adjust it?

Got the proto in the mail today...lovely! I love the quality of the fabric! Thanks!

I'm curious to know who won it?

If you win $500, you can either use it to buy clothes on Chic Star, or withdraw it on your PayPal account and use it for something else, or obviously buy what you want on Chic Star and withdraw the remaining fonds on PayPal (as long as the remaining fonds are over $100).

Yes, if the alteration wins (that is to say that the resulting dress is actually produced), you win $500 so as the person who altered it. If the alteration is only accepted, you win nothing.

Well this obviously isn't going to win, so since quite a few people found something 'off' about it, maybe I have a chance to win store cred if someone edits it and the proto for the edit wins? Is that right?

Don't worry Colleen....it still has a while to go!

I'm a little sad and embarrassed the auction for this is doing so miserably...:(

I think it is the straps... they look different than Colleen's design... maybe they are just not placed right on the model.

I like the design better. Something about the top is off.

This appears to be an elegant dress but mid black corset that doesn't go well with the dress. Thanks but no thanks

I think the bust needs to be longer, the midriff shorter, sleeves longer and straps shorter. Then it would be perfection!

I think the black straps need to go.

Scar-let, maybe you can alter it if it doesn't win! It's supposed to give the allusion of a vest over top of a dress. :)

this is a stunning design but I feel it is let down simply by the two types of sleeves/straps. I was thinking either change the back straps to a halter neck style or just remove the red sleeves all together and keep the black straps.

Hello Colleen, After the auction ends, you will receive an email with instructions. Thank you.

Lina or Gary, I never got the email asking whether I want the $50 or the proto in my size, so I'm just going to declare that I'd like my proto please, size 40, thanks!

oh, that's cool colleen, I do like the way it came out too :)

Name COLLEEN DEITRICH
I was about to ask, you were so eager to see this, Becky, are you still bidding? Haha    
 
Date 7/26/2011 7:40:21 PM
Name BECKY VIAROPULOS
But I would still purchase it though...

I like the contrast in color of the original submission the cherry red is what I loved, and I have to agree with Ionelee, I was expecting it to be a cotton/spandex sort of material :-(

Wendy, I specified that when Lina emailed me asking to describe the back, but I'm still very proud of how this came out! I hope people actually bid on it...

I like the way this turned out, looks nice :) I would have made the black straps connect to the black waist section in the back though...still I like the fabric used, i figured it was just going to be cotton...

I would have preferred this in a cotton for more casual wear. This came out nice, though.

Color is nice, like the black striping. But the waist/vest looks kind of strange in the material.

Very cute :o)

Also like the material! It gives the dress a bit of a classy look...

Oh my gosh, this turned out PERFECTLY! I love the color!! Thanks Chicstar! I love the cut, the length, EVERYTHING!!
