lol-lol : The best way to do this, I would have thought, would be to get a oneshouldered pattern if you can spare the expense, as the shape needs to fit well so it does not slip. Alternatively, you could use a clear strap to make sure it stays up properly and draft the top itself.

To compensate for the pleats you could either
a) turn the skirt the other way so the higher bit attaches to where the pleats are or
b) cut a slit near the bottom of the top pattern and stick a large triangle in which you will make the pleats with (extra material)

Make sure you allow plenty of material and make the dress wide enough. Perhaps compare with a well fitting tee and remember to add seam allowances.
I'm not sure what else to suggest. Hope this sort of makes sense. Good Luck

I was thinking I could alter a blazer pattern with a peplum waist and adjust the lapels but not sure the best way to go about this.  Ideas? 

Thanks for your help guys!

Sorry I do not know what a peplum waist is. If you want it to be just like the original you need to take notice of the darts on the back and the slits in the sleeves. I would have thought that it wouldn't be too hard to adjust a pattern. Was there a particular pattern you were thinking of?

Randommarble, thanks for replying... Smiley  Honestly I didn't know what a peplum waist was either till I saw that jacket and read the descrip.  It said that's what it was.  I didn't have a pattern in mind to start with...  I was thinking of altering a jacket I already have possibly or maybe a man's suit because there would be more material to work with for darts and such.  Maybe I'd have more luck just playing with some crap fabric till I got the general idea.  Smiley

A pepulum waist is fitted then flared from the waist down. I've gone thru all the posts here and find the books (wow, expensive) interesting. I'll look for those at the library this weekend. One thing I have been doing is tracing some of my favorite a-line skirts. I add a little extra for seam allowance and figure in darts for my butt. It's a front and back and two waist pieces all sewn with a sipper and takes no time. Someone wanted lounge pants. Me too. And I have a fave pair I want to copy. If I do it I'll post it. Anyway, thanks to those here with all the great suggestions.

Me too! I have been working on drafting a pattern and have been fiddling with the fabric I bought to do it, but I have not made any cuts out of sheer fear!
I really wish there were a picture of the Kara dress opened up - that would help alot. It does not look like a typical "wrap" dress - because it looks like it falls a little better than that. More of a V than a criss cross - that's why I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!
Has anyone seen one of these babies up close? There are tons of places that have them for sale on the internet - all in the $200 range - so I won't be meeting anyone who has one anytime soon. : )

It's a very simple dress. Look for a kimono wrap-style dress or shirt pattern. I've seen them at Joann's before.

It's made from jersey cotton [t-shirt fabric] and that's it.

I'm new to this website but I stumbled onto your posting and I am interested in getting a pattern for a shirt I found on this website:

I know it should be really easy, so easy I feel stupid asking someone for help with this.  I just can't figure out in my head what it should look like when it is laid out flat. Let me know what you think..thanks.
