I'm looking for a simple A-line halter pattern similar to the one on this site

http://www.ariadress.com/Desciptions/Desc188KA.htm

Can anyone help me in finding a patter or patterns that will work for making this dress? We'll be using Shantung Silk to make them.

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks!

Take a look at Simplicity 3784 I think it maybe what you are looking for. Plus there are a couple of reviews on this pattern.....always helps.

I think I'm lookig for something less full on the skirt. A slight flare only. I really want them to be as simple as possible.

That's the closest I've found so far as well. It just has a very full bottom and not enough v on top.

Then simply cut the V deeper in the dress and taper the skirt to something less full... it's really not that difficult to do so. You may want to do a muslin before cutting the final garment to make sure you have the neckline and skirt modifications correct.
