After I saw Kate Winslet's oscar dress by Badgley Mischka, I immediately wanted to make something like it for myself. I've searched online for patterns for a dress that resemble her dress, without luck. Do you guys think it makes sense to keep looking, or to just create my own pattern? Here's a pic of the dress:



Thanks!

wow that is a gorgeous dress. you probably wont find a pattern just like that one. but you could probably mix some together. just try to look through books of patterns like they have at walmart and if you find one that looks like the top part, and one that looks like the bottom, just mix. or you could go to a local seamstress running in with the picture saying "I WANT A DRESS LIKE THIS NOOOOOW"  Tongue lol

I'll bet Vogue has an evening dress pattern similar to that. They typically have the best selection. You might have to make a few alterations to get the exact look, but that shouldn't be too difficult if you have sewing experience. Good luck, and post a pic when you're done!!

Vogue pattern v2848 is similar to this dress but it will need modifying

You know, I think that she must use the best designers! I searched for 6 months for a pattern similar to her white dress that she wore at the end of "Titanic" to no avail. There is a dress that is incredible! I talked with so many people online to try and design that dress. Look it up sometimes!!

version 4.1: she's just so clinically cynically.

Could this be the dress you're talking about? http://www.costumersguide.com/heaven.shtml I love that site... for a lot of movies, they re-create the outfits and show you how you can, too. For this dress, though, they only have some reference pictures so far.

Bodice: Standard triangle top? Make the straps wide and then gather it to get the wrinkled look, and maybe find a couple inexpensive costume jewelry pins to complete the look. Make the lower part of the bodice extra long so you can gather it up, but as for the triangular shaped inset, I have no idea.
Skirt: I think you could make a straight skirt and then insert large triangles of fabric to make it flow in the front segment.
It'd take a good deal of effort, but I just might work. Good luck!

I love Kate Winslet, and most of her outfits. This dress is lovely. I would just get the fabric and go from there, cutting and sewing until I was happy. If you're not a great fool like I am, you might want to try and find some patterns that look as if they could make up part of the dress. Sorry to be so unhelpful...

Oh, and there's this absolutely gorgeous red dress she wore in Harper's Bazaar in I think November or December that I may try to make. Because I adore it and would like to wear it to a formal.
