Once again, I've fallen in love with an OOP pattern that I can't find anywhere: My Webpage
It's McCall's NY NY 2679 balloon skirt, circa 2000.
Does anyone know where to find this pattern or something similar?

I wish I did have that one! I treasure all my old NY*NY patterns from that era. They were fantastic. I was really sad when they morphed into some dumb mainstream thing and then disappeared. Good luck - I hope you can find it!

Thank you, I think it's going to be a long slog. Those were great patterns, weren't they?

Maybe you can convert any long full skirt into a bubble skirt. I remember seeing a tutorial or two when bubble skirts were all the rage. Maybe you can find them here. Good luck with your search/sewing!

------
My measurements = 47-35-43. Height = 5ft11in.
RTW size =18 on top, 14/16 on bottom.
Sewing size = 20 and I alter from there.

That's a good link; thank you.
I have been thinking of doing that. It's not really the pattern that I need so much as the instruction sheet. So maybe a tutorial will work.

I too have been looking for this pattern for years and finally got it. Yea
When I first saw it in the early 90's I loved it and should have bought it. I was really short on funds. By the time I had extra money the pattern was long gone, until today.

Vogue used to do a lot of this type of skirt, but the only current pattern is Vogue 9114.

Utta that is a nice look pattern. I was unable to sew and look at patterns for a good while. I must have missed those Vogue patterns. Thank you for posting the picture. I did not realize until recently that Macalls 2679 would qualify for the Lagenlook, I think?
