I hope this isn't the wrong board for this question!  Ok, maybeseven or eight years ago I saw a pattern, probably put out by one of the larger pattern makers- Simplicity or Vogue or Buttrick.  It looked great, but I thought "Oh, that's so dead simple I don't need to buy the pattern!"  The pattern was for a summer dress, sleeveless, but with wide straps so as to almost be cap sleeves, and it wrapped in some clever fashion that I cannot re-create in my head or on paper.  The front of the pattern had a drawing of a 40's style woman wearing a version of the dress in a yellow print.  I think. 

It seems like it should have been one of the Vintage Vogue patterns, but it's not one of the ones on the website.  Did anyone else see this pattern and have the smarts to purchase it, as I did not?  I'd just like to know who made it so I can look for it on e-bay or where ever.

There's this vintage pattern from Butterick, which wraps in an interesting way, it's #4790: http://img.sewingtoday.com/cat/10000/itm_img/B4790.jpg
That's the closest thing I can think of to what you've described, and quite a few people on the boards have made great versions of this dress.  Good luck finding the right one, though Smiley

Cool!  If that's not it, it's really, really similar.  (Where did I get the yellow dress from?) Awesome to know that folks have had success with it, now I just need to find a copy Smiley
I'd claim it was my magnetic personality, but really, that's just the steel.
