Does anybody know where I can purchase a dress pattern that is called a "fit and flare" style in ready to wear clothes. It is basically a princess style dress with additional seaming so that the finished dress has 12 vertical sections in the bodice. There is a seam down the middle of the front of the dress and four side front seams instead the usual two. The back is designed the same way, thus you end up with 12 bodice sections to piece together. If I cannot find a pattern, I may try to modify a princess style dress pattern and come up with my own "fit and flare" pattern, but it seems like it would be much easier to purchase one. Also, if anyone has any ideas on how to modify a princess style dress to get what I need, I would love to hear them. Here is a link showing a picture of the style of dress that I am describing: here is the link.
I hope it is okay to post this link. Thanks for any info that can be shared!

Pattern Review carries this cute dress pattern that closely resembles the Chadwicks dress. Hope this helps. :)

Looking on Pinterest at something else just now, I found a free Fit and Flare Dress pattern:

height 5'2" bust 36, waist 31, hip 39.
I have way too many yards to count, and I will never use them up, but I will die trying!
