Wrap pattern sought …


Helen in the UK is hoping that some kind and helpful reader of MilitaryHumveeAuction will know where she can find a pattern for a dress similar to this one — a wrap with a full skirt and collar/sleeve options. I know, it should be easy, right? But no.

And if anyone can tell me where to buy broderie anglaise online, I'd be very happy. Preferably at less than "oh-my-god-they-want-what?" per yard.

If you click on the image you can buy the dress featured here — it's a Zara dress listed on eBay.co.uk.

Coming up soon on MilitaryHumveeAuction … the Esprit giveaway is this week, if I can get everything ironed and pictures taken before Friday. And I'll have the winners of the book contest, I think. Plus, I'm feeling a bit ranty! Watch out!

  1. I just saw one listing for broderie anglaise at this link: I think they have one piece of up to 3 yards in length, white at about $9 per yard.

  2. Have just sent you an email – but MacCulloch & Wallis sell it – not sure if they ship to the states or not. Here’s the link:

  3. Are you looking for yard goods or trim, Erin? If it’s trim-per-yard, what width? If it’s yard goods, what kind of pattern are you interested in?

  4. This Vogue dress, V8233, doesn’t have the collar options, but I think it’s gorgeous. Here’s its link: forward to rants, Erin.

  5. A collar will go on that vogue dress easy-peasy. Ditch the flounce, extend the skirt and sash it up. It will be beautiful!!

  6. have some – linen, very nice. They used to have a wider selection, so the supply may be dwindling. And if you turn up that pattern, please post. I’ve been looking for one – to make out of the eyelet linen – for several months.

  7. Love love love that dress. But I wish someone could assure me that whomever purchases that particular dress WILL wear it with a slip. The current dress gracing the cover of McCall’s summer catalog makes me want to cry.–Lydia

  9. I just made a cute A-line skirt out oif black broderie anglaise last night. I got it for pretty cheap at Fabricville (I think it was about$6-7/metre on sale), a Canadian chain. E-me and I can see if they have what you’re looking for.

  10. Love that dress. It’s very similar to one I want to imitate from Anthropologie: been searching for a pattern and the closest I could get is Vogue 8233 and Vogue 8186, both requiring changes – but they might work for this dress too.

  11. Woot! Hey Erin. This is cemetery-gamer (that sounds weird out of context, lol) Jane McG, we met at GEL last month. Mark Hurst must have sprinkled us with Blogs of Note pixie dust, because my two blogs were blogs of note last week. I was tickled to see your blog is today’s Blog of Note! Yay for our blogs. 🙂

  13. I LOVE this dress. (The only part I’m not that crazy about is the collar, would prefer it without. I don’t really like standup collars unless we are talking about a full Mandarin collar or a Nehru jacket.)This is a wonderful blog!

  15. Ya, i just bought tons of fabric to make the Vogue dress being suggested. I didn’t think of that at first though. I was thinking of putting together the skirt of McCalls 4875 and top bit of New Look 6608.

  18. This dress is absolutely fabu! I love it!!! I have seen so many eyelet dresses this season, and they are always hella expensive. Unfortunatly, I am not at all talented enough to sew my own stuff. Wish I could help you out with info on patterns and material…but I can’t. I will just live vicariousley through you.

  19. Is the most successful offering yet. Gorgeous skirt, waist seam, collar and sleeve options. Sadly bust size an issue but i’m sure I could wangle it. Thanks for all your many suggestions. The search continues, but this might appease me in the short term!!

  20. I love that dress too – I have it with long sleeves (and 3 shirts in the same wrap-over style) – if any of you are considering buying it, please know that sizes run small, so you’ll want to buy a size larger than normal…
