We are throwing my MIL a 50's prom party for her 70th Bday next month and I'm stumped as to what to wear.  I do NOT want to do the poodle dog skirt thing.  I'll reserve that for my 6 month old girl.  Wink  I LOVE this dress!
   
Does anyone know of a similar pattern?  The neckline can be more simple (without the banding). 

Any other ideas would be appreciated.  Any tips to find fabulous fabric would be GREATLY appreciated!

There are some Simplicity patterns, but none on their website that looked like what you wanted.  Did you try Vogue, they have some nice ones, like this:

Wow - you're quick thanks!  I just checked back in to say that I think I'm just going to make a black circle skirt, white tank, and a red belt...  Easy and maybe just a little bit of the "bad" 50's girl.   Grin
