Hey everyone

I'm looking for a pattern to make this dress
this is another view of the dress
it looks like a simple double knit dress, I'm just not finding something with this basic structure, any ideas?

A basic t pattern, even a short one. A center back opening for a zipper or a pattern with a zipper will make it dressy like it appears to be. Find the aproximate place on your body where you want the diagnal line to be and cut, add seam allowances. Your pattern may or may not have the dropped shoulders, or it looks like bigger shoulders and shoulder pads maybe? Do you have to have that exact look?

The bottom part is where I can't tell. Is it a woven print, a knit print? Is it pieced, woven or knit?

Could you settle for a over the counter print or polka dots, something similiar?

It looks like this is a sweater knit dress where they've made the bottom in the zebra-ish stripe and the top solid, but my guess is that it is knit all in one with the pattern at the bottom. Maybe you can find a border print in a knit? The pattern, as Padme said is simple - finding fabric to simulate the look will be tough
