Luckily I sew. It won't look exactly the same but hopefully I will have a lovely blue and white dress.
In my stash i found this fabric.
A lovely stretch cotton. I think I bought from Spotlight last year
The pattern I think I will use is the Emery dress. A challenge in itself doing a FBA but I will give it a go.
The other source I will use is a RTW dress I have . It is one of my favourite plus size labels, an Australian label, i own this ship. I actually have 2 dresses in the style I like. The difference is they finish higher than the natural waist, more towards an empire line but not quite and they have a pleated lower skirt.
This is where my dilemma is, the Cynthia Rowley pattern Simplicity 1873 is probably closer to my ready to wear dress so possibly i should use that. Of course i should do a muslin , not something i ever do. Possibly I will try both patterns and see how I go.
