I've been eyeing this dress for a while. I decided I wanted to make something similar for myself and bought some fabric, but I really have no idea how to go about making it. Does anyone know of a pattern that is similar? No collar, button down front dress.





And if you know how they did the buttons with the little loops, that would be helpful too (though I know I dont have to do it that way). Do they sell trim thats already like that?

Thanks in advance! Smiley

Looks a lot like a shirtdress with cap sleeves and just made longer with insert at neck in front. Maybe you could improvise with a shirt pattern?
