The Sew Weekly Sewing Circle

 Ever since i saw this dress for sale on ebay, I was in love. It went way out of my budget, but then I was suprised when pictures popped up on

50s Purple Wool Cape Collar Cocktail Dress

I would love to be able to make this dress for a Christmas party (and wear it as much as possible after that), but I don't have a clue how to find a pattern similar.


Do any of you know of any patterns?

wow! what a fab dress..... I haven't seen a pattern like that as I recall, I will have a look later on when I have time for some net searching... good luck...

got it! check out simplicity 2868!
sassy lassie made it back in august-- i remembered drooling over the pattern and immediately thought of it when i saw the dress you want! i think with a little tweaking you would have it!



I use the top of of a coat pattern like ( )and use crissy pattern at the midi/bottow

Maybe you could use the top of  Butterick B5087

And the bottom of McCalls 5498
