To get an early start on finding stuff for my graduation (grade 9) dress. im really interested in this one Mika Todd wore.


These are my personal caps from the video. They arent very good, but hopefully you get the jest

can anyone suggest a pattern?

i have a dream of a scene between the green hills
clouds pull away and the sunlights revealed
people don't talk about keeping it real (its understood that they actually will)
and intoxicated and stimulated emcees staring through the trees, paranoid, are gone with the breeze...

I'm not seeing any patterns that have the piece that's attached to the top, although if you found an off-the-shoulder pattern you could just measure your front and back and cut pieces to those lengths.  I saw a few patterns with the ruffle on the bottom of the skirt, but none with a top like that.  If you can't find a pattern with a ruffle, my recommendation would be to shorten your skirt about as many inches as you want the ruffle to be long.  Then just cut your ruffle piece 1 1/2 to 2 times as long as your skirt front and back. 

I also have to say, it looks like that dress is a solid fabric underneath and a sheer overlay.  I hate sewing with sheers, it's a giant pain.  If I were you, I would try to find a fabric that's embellished or maybe that has the overlay built in, but that might be my personal bias talking.  Smiley 

Good luck!
