I really really really love this dress by Hayley Starr. I'd love to make it but I've tried making things without a pattern and they never turn out right so I was hoping someone could point me in the direction of a pattern that would help me make this dress?

That's the only picture of it that I could find. Ginnifer Goodwin wore it to Block Party but I can't find a picture of her in it. (If anyone gets Teen Vogue it's on page 115 of the March 2006 issue.)

Thanks in advance for any help!

OK, from staring at that picture, here's what I've got:

+ It's made from a fine knit jersy fabric. The skirt is possible a circle skirt - it's dedinately cut on the bias.

+ It has a big waistband. You could get the triangle by cutting the waistband up and re-stitching it together.

+ I'm sure you could get a pattern for a low-V T-shirt? If so, you could sew on grey ribbon for that effect. Or fabric, but it would be harder; you'd have to make the seams really neat, whereas you'd be able to get away with ribbon.

If you wanna make your own pattern....

+Circle skirt. That's easy, right? You can follow a tute. With a thick waistband.

+Bodice - Get a bodice block for the back. For the front, if you can't find a pattern - look at some of your triangle T-shirts if you have any. You'll need to create the "body" of it - should be easy, bodice front, bottom half, with some darts. Then for the top half, gather the triangles slightly so they fit around your boobs, sew on, attatch sleeves.

That won't be very concise as I'm not a seamstress. But I think by looking at your own clothes and exhisting patterns, you may be able to figure it out, even if you only make the SHAPE of it, not with all the DECOR.

Hope that helped a little.

the fabric almost looks like chiffon to me.. although you probably have a better idea, having seen another picture. the fabric choice will be important in this - it won't hang properly if it's not the right fabric. try draping it in the fabric store to see how it hangs.
