I did not use a pattern for this dress but it ended up being fairly simple to make. I made two elastic casings and put a short section directly under the bust and then another piece (that went all the way around to the back) at the waist (its hard to see in the picture). I wanted it to inspire a modern Grecian look. The dress is also probably the most comfortable article of clothing that I own!
