Hello crafters!

I'm wondering if anyone can help me find a pattern for a dress.  Here's a picture of what I'm trying to make: http://www.google.com/imgres?start=150&hl=en&tbo=d&biw=819&bih=380&tbm=isch&tbnid=1OWxQCebnzDcDM:&imgrefurl=http://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-style/pictures/nicole-richie-boho-chic-style-2012209/25048&docid=vo-ZKZi0HQWjFM&imgurl=http://www.usmagazine.com/uploads/assets/photo_galleries/regular_galleries/1840-nicole-richie-boho-chic-style/photos/1348192069_1-nicolerichie-1500.jpg&w=873&h=1500&ei=KTrqUKSXDIfS9AT7u4HoCQ&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=619&vpy=-50&dur=551&hovh=148&hovw=85&tx=161&ty=214&sig=102962773904446705762&page=9&tbnh=148&tbnw=85&ndsp=14&ved=1t:429,r:63,s:100,i:193

Any help would be great!

Thanks

I think it'd be fairly easy to make. Probably one large rectangle for the back, two for the front and four small rectangles, two for each sleeve. Plus a tie belt. I'm not finding any sewing patterns similar to that dress so this is my best guess.

Yeah, I can't find an exact match, either. I would start with a wrap dress pattern and work my way from there.

You know, I think you could alter a bathrobe pattern to do this- just use a silky fabric, and add an inside "extra security" tie to the inside. To get the wrapped waist effect, instead of making a detached belt tie for it, attach it into the seam where the facing and front goes together, so that it will "pull" when you tie it...just a thought.
