Don’t forget that you can combine two patterns! If you can find a top (even a shirt pattern) that’s similar enough, and a full skirt with pockets (even if it’s NOT floor-length; you can always extend the pattern!), you should be able to piece it together.

Just remember to go by your MEASUREMENTS, and NOT by your dress size. Sewing sizing run HUGE. And even at that, they’re not always reliable. Just be careful! Like for instance, I usually wear a 6 or 8 in a regular dress size (usually a 10 with alterations for a formal dress). In a sewing size, I’m a 12 in the bust, a 6 in the waist, and a 4 in the hips (granted, I have very top-heavy measurements!). Always make the pattern to the largest measurements, and HOPE that it can be adjusted enough where it’s too big!

Good luck! Please post pics on progress if you can! It’s nice to meet other brides with modest dresses!

Thank you!
