My SiL is graduating high school in May and would like a dress like this Pinterest pin. She is petite and pretty curvy, I'd call her a cross between a rectangle and hourglass shapes. Any ideas? I'm looking for something fairly easy to fit and that has a similar collar detail. I'm totally willing to merge patterns if needed! TIA

The collar looks like a pre-fab one. Sold loose as a set. Just single layer fabric, cotton embroidered. Those are sold all ready made up even, in sets, of two pieces, mirroring each other. I don't know where to get those now, but they used to be in all the major big box fabric stores even, mounted on cardboard on the hang tag walls, but that was more in the 1980's when they were real popular back then and maybe not so much now.

But if you can find the pre-fab collar pieces, then you could use almost any sewing pattern, with a plain boat or scoop neck you liked as the single layer prefab collar just gets inserted into there, but finding the collar pieces would even be the first thing probably. Unless you really wanted to make them from scratch instead.
