The "Diva" has decided she now wants to be Rose from The Titanic and can i get cracking with making her a costume. I am not very good at drafting patterns so has anyone any ideas on were i can get a pattern from? Have tried all the usual suspects, I did come across this https://www.pinterest.co.uk/pin/143833781819291076/ but it is an out of print pattern and the diva is only 6 years old.

Thanks Brenda, i have sent for the simplicity pattern and will adapt by not having as much gathering in the skirt. The Diva is a stickler for detail despite her age.
