wow-this one stumped me- I found this New Look 6348
pattern that has the split neckline featured on both dresses, and the high neck of the black one,
and this
Burda 8132
has the gathered front-and a similar line to the skirt-but nothing that matched all the design features in one pattern.
Maybe someone else can do better?<<

Here's one that has that gathered-to-the-front-band look: Neue Mode 23182, but that's where its similarity to the black dress ends.

And New Look 6621 might be good one for the neckline on that dress.

It's a great dress, though, and if you're up for it, mixing elements of a number of different patterns would be worth it.

Curse flash websites. . .annet, do you have a number for that dress pattern? The link will only take us to the homepage for Marfy, not a dress pattern (not your fault; it's the way the Marfy website is designed).

Hi Annette:
What a cute, youthful dress!

These two Vogue patterns have the front band/gathering and the collar, you could add different sleeves:

V2790
V7751 (out of print, but can still be ordered through their website)

Gorgeous dress, I can't wait to see how it turns out. Here's my 2 cents. I'm with Karla, Neue Mode 23182 a good starting base for the black dress.

Trinicity, can you tell us where you found these dresses? I'm trying to sketch that black one so I don't forget what it looks like (I love it), but I realize now why I flunked Stick Figure 101. My dress sketch looks like Salvador Dali mugged Betsy McCall.
