im not sure that would work..i would say ..

ive seen loads of that fabric in white buy some and dye it yellow!
find a corset tut there are quite a few on there then id do the dress after the corset because you may find that the corset will do alot of the gathering for you without having to sew loads in.
you may need strong tulle and lots of it to accomplish that shape

i dont blame you for loving it its fricking gorgeous!!

That is a particular type of fabric.  I think you'll probably find it someplace like Denverfabrics.com  It isn't all that uncommon.  I believe that it is cotton, I don't think it is a blend.  I haven't seen it for a little while although I have some in my stash.  The fabric, just as the picture has a glossy stripe, a dull stripe.

You also might find it at this site (Farmhouse Fabrics).

it looks like cotton sateen striped sheets... only... i couldnt find any at a reasonable price.

http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/product.asp?order_num=-1&SKU=108805 was the cheapest, and of course, not in the right yellow... perhaps a more diligent search would give you more?

That's so cute! I love Betsey. Smiley I don't know of a pattern that would work for it off the top of my head, but it looks like you could make adjustments to a regular strapless party dress pattern pretty easily.  The corset is really sweet, too-- if you're not ready for a real corset with boning and a busk and everything, there are lots of costume patterns for corset-y belts.

Well, looking at the two pictures linked to here, it seems pretty simple....

I would cut a big rectangle of fabric (2-3 times my actual body circumference), probably about as long as I am from bust to the knee,  with the grainline running vertically.  Then I'd sew a panel of the fabric with the grainline running horizontally to the bottom for the contrast panel.  Then I'd sew it into a tube, make a casing and use 3/4" nonrolling elastic for the top.  Cinch it at the waist with a corset as in the first picture (which are really easy to make and don't let them intimidate you) or with a loooong scarf wrapped several times (or just a length of fabric) as in the second picture.

And I agree--cotton sateen.  Maybe you can find a flat sheet at Marshalls/TJ Maxx?  Queen size should do ya, or maybe King for good measure...

just a note on the sheets idea-- that was my first thought when I saw it-- if you have a ross's dress for less nearby, they have them for under $10 usually.
