Swing Dress Example

Hi,

I'm trying to make something similar to the above link. I'm a plus plus size, so I would need a pattern or a couple patterns to splice together to make something like that. Mostly I'm having an issue finding a way to do the sleeves and the extra bodice part in the white polka dots. The easier the better.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Thank you so much!

Butterick 5882 might be a good jumping off place. You didn't say what size you need but this pattern goes up to size 20. If you need larger, there are lots of tutorials on dong FBAs and grading patterns up and down. If you have something with similar sleeves, you could use that armhole instead of the straps and then put in the other sleeve.

This one has a similar bodice. B5882

This one has a similar skirt: V2903V2903

Thus Burda pattern pattern is a plus size and you would definitely need to change the skirt. But because of the bodice, I think you could do the polka dot part.

I don't have any advice or info, but just wanted to offer encouragement - I can't wait to see how this dress turns out!
