Okay, so, I have 3 formals (the Kiwi equivalent of proms) this year. And to at least one, I plan on wearing a dress similar to this one:

Isn't it wonderful?! But yes, I'm looking for a similar pattern, or a pattern with a similar bodice shape. I'm going to et rid of the pintucks, so it should be easy enough? Any help would be very much appreciated!

What size?  I have a ton of vintage patterns that might work.

Red lipstick and red nails, all a girl needs.

Stargirl52, that dress is beautiful, but I don't think I can help you. I don't use patterns...


I finished my best friend's dress!

You could omit the sleeves and add spaghetti straps or wider straps. Whatever you like.

Wow!  I thought it might be a shot in the dark because most of my patterns are for small women, but I thought I'd offer.  Turns out, you really might be in luck.  Might even have a few options.  I'll check my stash tonight for the appropriate sizes.

OK, of the patterns in your size, this one comes the closest:

I know it isn't quite it.  I do have one that has a straight-across bodice, too which the little straps could be added pretty easily, but it's for a 32" bust.

Oh, that's gorgeous! Thank you so much! I'd love to see the straight across one too, if that's alright!

I think I even already have it scanned, so I'll try to post it tonight.

Dress number 2:



You can't see it very well in the picture but there is beading around the front at the bottom as well as in the middle at the top.

Again I made my dress, bag, wrap, and jewellery.

And I'm not quite sure what's going on with the look on my face   Undecided

Beh!  Shocked How did prom get here so fast? I started working and then got caught up sewing all the costumes for the school's musical! What are the chances I can finish this in four days?!
