If it's the collar that you love, this won't help but here is a basic twist top dress:



Lekala twist top

Personally, I really like the look of the cap sleeves on this - I think it would be even more comfortable for travel than real sleeves.

Gonna try and get the line drawing in:




ETA: if you haven't used Lekala before - they are downloadable, custom sized patterns without real instructions. Could be a challenge if you're a beginner sewer but they do let you get started right away!

With the $29 price tag for the print it might be worth buying from travelsmith.

That is a very nice dress! Jalie has a twist top that I've lengthened into a dress. The twist is higher though. I get tons of compliments every time I wear it.

Hmmm.... I do still love it but that I just completed my third dress.... I'm beginning to think I just can't make a modest enough neckline unless it's a turtle neck! :-( I can't quite get the bust adjustments right and everything is hoochie.

I really like all of the patterns suggested! Are any of them decent for someone who doesn't know that much?
