So, I'm making a cocktail-style dress for a friend and I'm looking for a couple of different styles, but I don't know exactly what to search for as far as pattern and I've been scouring the vintage section of Etsy all night now! Send help!

The two styles I'm looking at are these:

(specifically the wider neck. like almost off the shoulder as a sleeve, but not quite? everything i've search off the shoulder is like, legit OFF of the shoulder, hehe) 


This is sort of a marilyn-ish dress, which I searched, but everything is coming up halter. Blah.


The full skirt will be easy enough, but I don't know what to call these bodices in my searches, so I haven't really found the right pattern. Getting overwhelmed. If anyone has any pattern ideas, please help! Thanks so much Cheesy

I wonder if princess would bring up anything?  The top one looks like it might have princess seams.

Whatever they're called, I love them both.  That is totally my style - you have a lucky friend.

Try "wide scoop neck" for the first one and "surplice bodice" for the second one...vintage vogue seems to have similar patterns to both of these...

 how about this one for the second one?

This one has v neck & sleeves, but you could eliminate the sleeves and cut the neck as a scoop
http://voguepatterns.mccall.com/v2903-products-4894.php?page_id=857

Or maybe try this one
http://voguepatterns.mccall.com/v2960-products-8312.php?page_id=857

Also, check www.sewingpatterns.com It's a difficult site to navigate and search, but they do have literally thousands of dress patterns.

You guys are amazing!
I actually have that second pattern, Alena! it has a gathered underbust, but maybe i can maneuver it to just plain, I didn't even think of that!

Thank you so much you guys, my brain was going to explode before!
