Can anyone suggest a pattern for this dress:


It's a beautiful silhouette but - even if I had $350 for a dress - it's synthetic fabric and I'm not loving the jungle camouflage print. Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Cute. Looks like there's an empire seam, and the skirt is gored. The bodice is crossover, with some pleating details that you might just want to try draping.

Bodice of McCalls 6557 and a gored skirt portion from something like Butterick 5745?

New Look 6244 is similar.

New Look 6774 is also similar, but the skirt is not gored. Top H is the one I would start with.

You would have to draft the collar piece.

thanks so much! I just saw the new McCalls this morning -- I love 6557. I agree the bodice could be draped. I'm surprised that none of the Vintage Vogues have a similar bodice.

I always forget to look at the special occasion dresses - the bodice of Vogue 8360 is pretty close. Vogue 8360

Someone mentioned this catalog for inspiration-I got mine just a couple days after ordering. Their fabrics are lovely! Where can you find comparable? Most of our choices are very loud prints, stripes, or the eye-straining zigzag knits.

Love-- Wild Blossom Maxi Dress $199, a sage jersey with red blossoms. Nice side draping on basic sleevless bodice and skirt.
(Pattern and post it anyone?)
Santa Croce T dress $199, cream jersey with aqua, burgundy water colors.
Kolka dress $129 in border print indigo jaquard knit (idea how to run border down the center. (Peru)
