Subject: pattern help needed Date: 7/3/12 4:45 PM

I am looking for a pattern like this anthropologie dress (sorry for such a large pic but I could not find a smaller one from their site to copy--or I just don't know how)

The closest I can find is this Butterick pattern. However the bodice is different and I really don't want ruching at the waist.


I have searched and searched for a similar pattern, but I am not coming up with anything. Does anyone know of one?

You might have to frankenpattern!

The top part of the dress looks like a simple tshirt, slight scoop neck and cuton or kimono sleeves - so if you can find that style tshirt pattern you could use the skirt from the dress pattern you found already?

Did you already check patterns for tops also? The skirt is just a gathered waist (elastic?), so that should be easy enough to draft yourself or get from another skirt or dress pattern.

I checked my inventory to see if I had an older OOP option, but didn't find anything similar.

I did some checking back through my Burda magazines and found the perfect top. I can put some flutter sleeves on it and a skirt and I think it will work. Thanks. I am sorry about misspelling "needed". I tried to correct it but it would not let me.

I look forward to seeing a picture when you have completed it.

Do you have fabric? If you are looking to replicate, this GirlCharlie knit is pretty close albeit in a different colourway. It looks like the Anthro dress is a light woven though.

I found a similar fabric at fabric.com that is a knit. Thanks for that fabric suggestion though, it is pretty.
