So my BF's Brother is getting married in Oct and I'm making my own dress. I found this dress on www.modcloth.com
http://static2.modcloth.com/productshots/0043/6971/14442-1.jpg


I have a pattern (http://voguepatterns.mccall.com/v8184-products-5432.php?page_id=855) to make the basic 'black' part of the dress I'm just a bit unsure on making a pattern for the red/black skirt part.

Would something like this work?

I would definitely start there, but be sure to make a muslin before you cut your special fabric!!!!

Definitely do a muslin mockup before getting into the expensive fabric! It will also help you finalize where the folds should go and where the slope of the curve should start coming up. The example you drew up (just a rough example, I know!) looks like the curve should start more to the left (when looking at it as it is on the screen) and the pleats should be farther apart.

Think the amount of fabric needed for a two-circle skirt - the first circle being the sheer part, the second circle allowing for a little overlap between the full-length edge and the beginning of the curve, plus the wide pleats needed for the drape to be correct.
