I recently fell in love with this dress:

But, none of the sizing is right for me, so I figured I'd make it.
Does anyone know of any similar sewing patterns? Doesn't have to be exact, just similar Smiley

Thanks!

eek, that would be incredibly complicated to sew.

you will probably have a lot of trouble finding a pattern like that, because its so difficult that it's not something the average sewer would tackle.

here is something vaguely similar:

but its gathered, not pleated.

I would recommend using a dress form, or making a duct tape dress form, and draping over the form to get your dress right. make a lining first, and that should help get the sizing right.

good luck if you try it!
