    I did not use a pattern for this dress, but I used a different dress of mine as inspiration for the bottom half!

    I used stretchy fabric that stretched both vertical and horizontal. If you use stretchy fabric, make sure that the stretch is horizontal, so it will stretch to fit the body!

    To do the darts on the front, I kinda cheated! I simply made a double layer tube-top, with 3 vertical stitches, about 2 inches long down the middle (with wide enough space to fit a safety pin between.) Then I cut 2 small holes on the top between the stitches with a seam-ripper. After that, I fed the ribbon down, between the right and middle stitches and looped it up between the left and middle stitches. Once you feed the ribbon through, sinch the fabric down, which will create a fitted top! Below is a drawing of what the ribbon would look like between the double top layers:
