I adore this dress from Coldwater Creek. It's made from ponte knit and it says it has "extended shoulders" The rest of the dress will be easy to copy once I get that shoulder/cap sleeve thing figured out. Any pattern suggestions?

That is a really cute dress. Onion 2026 has a neck band, but I don't really find any patterns that match closely.

I just know that I have a Butterick or McCall pattern that has that neckline, but I can't find it online or in my stash anywhere. Some how I remember a black and white outfit on a model. I'll keep looking...

I agree with you, Leora, seems pretty close to the neckline of the dress.

If you break it down, the CC dress has raglan sleeves and the bust darts seem to be "hidden" in the contrast band (it's not straight across at the bust). A-line skirt.

Isn't there a retro reprint Vogue like this? For wovens, true but the same shoulder treatment?
