Hi,

I would like to make a sailor dress and have come across the most amazing dress by an out of print pattern company, Modes Royale. Does anyone have any suggestions of alternate patterns I could use that would be similar?

The dress is from the 1952 Spring/Summer pattern book and features on the front cover. Here is a few pictures of the dress (it is the strapless one, I don't think I'd make the jacket).

Red Dress with jacket

Navy strapless dress

Thank you for any assistance you can give.

Is there a way you could use the image and post the picture.
I can't see the two you posted.

Cute! It's really just a very basic strapless dress with a full four-gore skirt, and then a wrapped bow detail.

Some somewhat similar patterns:

Vintage Vogue V2902 - not strapless, and the skirt doesn't have the same gore lines, but does fall in a similar circle. You'd just need to add boning to make it strapless, and drape a bow.

Vintage Vogue V9261 is another good option. The bust darts aren't the same, and you'd need to get rid of the front opening and put in a back or side zip. Plus the bow wrap.

Vogue 5811 has a slightly dropped waist, and would need to be shortened, but is otherwise very close to your dress.

Really though, you just need a strapless bodice pattern and a full four-gore skirt. Good luck!
