So, I was doing my homework on wearable technology when I found this:



I nearly died, it's so cuuute.  The shape of the dress would look great on me, and I'd like to make something like this for summer (minus the color-changing fabric, I don't think that's necessary!)

Anyone know of a similar pattern I could use for it?  It seems fairly simple to make but I suck at making my own patterns...

Search through the online pattern books and see if you can find something similar...it might already be out there

It is cute and the sleeves look very interesting...the shape appears to be a basic shift with darts at the waist to cause the pleating in the skirt...

I am sure you can find something to get you started if you research the patterns book a bit

I recommend looking on http://www.burdastyle.com. There may be a free or inexpensive pattern you could modify. Also don't forget about vintage/out of print patterns. A google search for the size & some general keywords such as "short sheath dress with darts" and the word pattern may yield something you can use.
