Help finding a Bridesmaid Dress Pattern

A couple days after getting engaged I found a dress on Modcloth that I thought would be so cute for my vintage country themed wedding. After going to every bridal store in town I can't find a dress similar to it anywhere. Modcloth doesn't carry this dress anymore and I can't get the dress in an extra large. I'm getting really frustrated to say the least. One of my mom's best friends is a retired seamstress and has offered to make the dresses if I buy the materials. The only problem now is I'm having trouble finding a pattern. My bridesmaids range in sizes from one that is a size 16/18 and the other three range from 4-8. Does anyone know of a place that has a pattern similar to the dress I have posted below?

  • As a size 18 myself, I have to say that if i wore that dress I would look like I was wearing a Hefty bag. It would be cute and stylish on a 4, not an 18.... That being said, when I was in my sister's wedding and the other maids were b*tching about the dresses, I told her that I'd gladly wear a duct tape and burlap dress with my hair done up to look like a traffic cone (color and all) with 70s disco platforms if that was what she wanted us to wear. I agree with Liatris that it may be easier to go with dresses of similar fabric, color and length than to try to find (or make) identical dresses that will only flatter one body type. If you're determined to find a pattern check out http://www.simplicity.com/ http://mccallpattern.mccall.com/ or http://butterick.mccall.com/ in their Dresses, Evening, Bridal and Retro sections - an experienced seamstress should be able to size a pattern up and down accordingly to fit all of the various sizes of your girls
  • I agree with Sarah.. also being a size 18 this dress would make me look like I had no shape and just look huge. It is a pretty dress and being she's a 16/18 she would probably need a 1x to be comfortable.
