I hope I posted this in the right section  Huh

I'm thinking of making my own baro't saya, either just for special events or even for my wedding, mainly because I really don't like how pina feels, so I want to make it using more comfortable fabrics.

The thing is, I have been having the hardest time trying to find a pattern for it, and am not the greatest at navigating through existing patterns and figuring out what would work.

I appreciate any help from you guys Cheesy

Actually I should've been more specific. I'm trying to find a pattern for the top, as the skirt appears to be a simple A-line with scalloped edges.

I think this one looks pretty close: http://voguepatterns.mccall.com/v8020-products-6651.php?page_id=857
You could just skip the skirt part, then add sleeves.

The neckline of this one looks closer, but you would have to extend the top: http://butterick.mccall.com/b4443-products-5395.php?page_id=155

Sleeves like that should be pretty easy - you could use any puff sleeve pattern but only gather the top and adjust the length. Like this one: http://www.simplicity.com/p-2370-misses-tops.aspx

Hope that helps!

(PS. check Joann's for pattern sales if you're in the US and have one near you. I think I saw some coming up in the current flyers.)
