To make this dress no actual pattern was used. However If you make a basic strapless dress or use a strapless dress pattern it is no problem. All I did was add a scalloped edge on the bottom of the dress. When i lined the dress I made a ruffle that I attached to the lining that was longer then the outer layer of the dress. I also added a band to make the dress have an empire waist.
I used cotton but i am sure it would work with other fabrics as well.
