Any idea where I could get a pattern to clone this skirt?

Nordstrom page



I like the asymmetry of the drape-and-tuck area, especially. Maybe even a pattern piece schematic would be sufficient. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
June

I've looked around a bit but haven't found anything. Looks like it was draped on a form to me!

You could lengthen the skirt portion of the HotPatterns Deco Vibe Sarine Dress:

This Burda is close, but I think the Hot Patterns is better.

Is there a seam down the front? I can't tell. I would be tempted to self draft this.
Just get a knit skirt pattern with a waistand to fit and a full/slightly gather skirt. Sew the bottom skirt panel seam closed. Sew the waistband closed
Now attach the skirt. Start ar the center front and insert it smoothly- no gathers.
Work your way around and when you get to the CF again you will have extra fabric. Bring that up up and over and secure it behind the waistband.
I am not sure how this will affect the hem.
You could work up a half size model and see how it would work.

I suspect there is a seam in the center front because if you look right above her shoes, you can see a slight lift in the hem. Also, I suspect the asymmetry would be hard to pull off without a seam.

I belatedly remembered that Jalie has a t-shirt pattern with a foldover neckline. They post their pattern instructions and schematics online for free, so I think I can use that as a starting point to draft my own.

Thanks to all for the suggestions! I think the HP is a great commercial place to start if the 2-dimension to 3-dimension transformation proves too much for my spatially challenged brain!

I have been looking for a pattern for a drape front skirt pattern to copy a Helmut Lang draped, wrap front skirt. I have the Burda pattern and missed it. But, the Hot Patterns looks like a good fit as well. Thanks.
