I'll be honest: for the price I would just buy them since the fabric would be more then the cost of those.

oh okay. now I rember. I liked number one as in a tiered dress but I do NOT like the waist line or neckline.

for number 2 I love the greco syle draping but not the extreme gathers ruight under the bust. thats why I wanted to find a similar pattern.

Go to ETSY and check out their vintage patterns from the 60s, and 70s; I've often seen similar styles to these there. Be careful on pattern sizes though; there's been changes since those periods of time.
