hiya,
i'm looking to make a dress for a family wedding next october. i have a very thin frame and like the idea of a vintage style dress with pleated skirt, empire waist, a bust that fits tight on my small chest, and spaghetti straps. that oughtta look classy with heels and a cardigan. i think i'd go for a vintage looking thin calico. any recommendations for a pattern or different style altogether?

Vintage Simplicity 3077 has a cute pleated skirt with a fitted bodice, but not spaghetti straps. You could use the bodice from a different pattern, such as (vintage)Simplicity 3015.
