I'm almost positive I saw a pattern like the first one from either McCalls or Vogue.  I think I have it and I'll post the number if I can find it.

If you can't find a pattern ,just use the pictures to disect the dress. The one with Cherry Dollface would be a good one to look at. you can see seams on it,

the first one's really just a galaxy dress, if you try searching for that in google etc you should find plenty!

try this (if the link doesnt work, its vogue pattern v8280)

Sulkycat thanks for that link...I'm a HUGE fan of "50s Pinup" clothes and that pattern is great!...

I'm actually TRYING to make a pinup-ish dress out of a bra right now...LOL so far so good but not great...owning a dressform would so help  Sad

no problem, am after a full skirted 50s dress at the mo (well, the pattern for one), the only one i have really liked is a vogue one too, but its sooooo expensive! might have to play around & make my own pattern, but i really dont have the time / energy to do that anymore

enjoy yours, would love to see what you end up making!
