Okey doke so I was wondering around the shops and decided out of boredom to try this dress on and I really really really loved it (x a million), and then I realised it was 200 Sad  So now I need to try and make something similar.



Its just a wrap dress really, the underskirt is just a regular skirt underneath. I was just wondering if anyone knew of any good patterns /tutorials that I could use Smiley

Sorry, I wish I could help. I'd like to know too, it looks like a really nice dress. Maybe you could start with a wrap skirt pattern (burdastyle should have some) and then just add the bodice part by using one of your own tops as a basis? I'd make up a dummy run before using good fabric though. Good luck!

This is adorable! I'd like to help also but I'm more of a sewing stalker.. My skills are extremely limited! Let us know if you find a pattern that works!

And dance with the dead.
And howl at the ghost
With the axe in his head.

So none of these are exactly what you are looking for, but these patterns might give you an idea of where to start
