I have two of these dresses (in different colors) and love the style. I would love to find a pattern similar to them so I could make myself a couple more. The sleeves are kimono style, the waist is several rows of gathered elastic, the skirt is slightly a-line and above knee length. Material used is ITY jersey. If I can't find a pattern, I was thinking of trying to copy a pattern from one of the dresses I have, but since I'm a bit of a newbie with sewing I wanted to see if there was an actual pattern out there first!
Here is a picture of the dress:

How about Vogue 1224 for a starting point?

Butterick 5463, View C, looks close. You would need to lengthen it and add the elastic waist.

Butterick 5496 is also similar. The sleeves are longer though.

Thanks so much for all the replies, I appreciate it! I think the vogue one might work if I added an elasticized waist - I like the pattern runway one too. Thanks for all the help!
