Want to make a dress similar to this one:

Any ideas for patterns or techniques I can use to produce this neckline and the ruching on the skirt??

Thanks!

    That would be easier to drape on the stand than to try and find a pattern. You probably need to start with a foundation with a boned top and a short pencil skirt, and drape the outer layer to get that tucked effect with the asymmetrical hem… Yup! Reading the description, that would be about right!

    Good luck!

    Hi I would also like to know about any patterns that could be converted or used to create the effect of some of the Vivian Westwood drape style dresses (from the red or gold collections) I dont own a mannequin and was hoping for a commercial pattern. Thanks

      There won’t be one. It really is a matter of experimenting to get that look…
