I soooo love this dress. Has anyone seen a pattern that resembles this? Aside from the ruffles, it looks pretty straightforward, but I'm still a sewing novice.

I too am a HUGE fan of L.A.M.B. clothes!  Vogue has a few really nice patterns that could work nicely for this dress.  I am a big fan of #V8353.  It's not exact, but has the best shape and you could leave the collar off and add a cumberbund and ruffles and BAM!  You've got your dress!

Also V2401, is a really great Vintage Vogue pattern.

 Vintage Vogue is my favorite!  I really just love Vogue patterns in general.  They not only are very stylish and on-top of the trend, but they are good quality patterns and very concise.  The also are often made by my favorite designers - right off the runway!

Good luck!

***BTW Jo-Ann is having a Columbus Day sale and Vogue patterns will be just $3.99 each!  I've been making my must-have list all afternoon and dreaming of a new wardrobe!   Grin

just wanted to put my 2 cents in -- that vintage vogue pattern is HORRIBLE. I made it for Easter a few years ago, and while construction is an intermediate level, actually wearing it is a pain -- the dress is made in such a way that the skirt has a front panel, and then the rest of the fabric from the back comes around and ties in the front. if you're outside, beware the slightest breeze, or you'll be showing more than you want to.
