Saw the most interesting twist in a pricey retro-look boutique dress.
Simple straight soft knit shift with scarf collar, but then the pleats of the scarf at the neck continued down each side of center front into folds, fluttering to the hem. I was examining a long time when the snooty clerk kept saying, "Are you FINDING everything??" so I didn't dare start sketching!
Should have taken it in the dressing room to measure how much fabric it took across the front.
It would make a really cute tunic top, thin fabric so it didn't add a lot of weight.

Yes, cell phone pics! When you click the fake shutter, make a coughing noise. Heck, it's the allergy season.

Was it anything at all like Kwik Sew 3826 (the top):

Unfortunately, the only review of this suggests a drafting error (in the sleeve).

marjoriekh’s suggestion of Kwik Sew 3826 is probably better, but I thought I’d try to help with this: new spring Simplicity 1806

Well, I was out of town, so can't go back and H. had phone.
But picture the red neckline here, only the whole front was one piece, not seamed! down to the hem. So you'd have to draft the pattern by cutting a really wide front, then pinch it into a scarf collar where the tails fall into soft pleats. I'm thinking of fiddling with a wrap-cardigan pattern piece, but they often have a separate collar strip too. I suppose
sewing down the scarf tails within the front seams of the S. pattern, like a ruffle, would give the same effect. Just couldn't figure how it worked with one solid bodice section!

Just saw new M6564 mentioned here! So it would look like that wrap, without the opening--pattern drafters, anyone?

Maybe if one of us could goto the store and take a picture of the item? Just a thought
