Hey!

I've fallen in love with this fabric, I have a cowboy obsession.


and I'd really like to make a dress out of it, but I'm having trouble finding a pattern for the dress that's in my head.

Anything sort of like this dress


Thanks!

Those are all really nice, I might use the New Look one.

Here's the actual dress I was thinking of, isn't it cute?


I like how the neckline is curved instead of square. But what I'm concerned about (because I've never used a patterned fabric for some reason) is that with a pattern that has a lot of pieces, won't it be very difficult to line up the images right.

I'm sure someone has done this before. So I guess I also have to worry about how many pieces there are, and where they attach together.

Thanks!
