I bought this dress and it is the most flattering thing I own. Alas, I got it at the Goodwill, and I can't go buy six more. I want to find a pattern. I have mostly used Simplicity in the past, but I could go with someone else if I can find something like it.

Part of the charm are the seams down the dress. I think they are called princess seams? The skirt is A-line. The sleeves are sleeveless under the sweater, and I could take or leave that aspect. The back of the dress comes up about above the bra strap, and there is a zipper up the back. I am petite, and it hits me just above the knee.

Any recommendations for how to recreate this dress in every color?

There's a video on how to do it with a fancy silhouette board and computer but you only really need your garment, paper, and a bit of determination :-) You can watch the video to see how it's laid out here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K1Ofs2gEiX8 I use leftover holiday wrapping paper, newspaper, or even paper grocery bags (you have to ask for one or two)

It looks exactly like View C of this pattern: http://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m6027-products-10725.php?page_id=108 without the embellishments at the neckline.
