Village Frock Blues!

Screenshot2010-11-16at5.08.42PM-2010-11-20-07-20.png
I was so excited to make this dress, The Village Frock, by Sugar City, for my daughters for their Christmas dresses! I had seen it last year and could not remember the name of the dress pattern. I searched high and low, finally when I found the name of the pattern and went to buy. I found out the pattern is no longer available!!! After seeing the Sugar City Flickr group I decided to not give up so easily.
If any one would like to share, borrow, trade or sell their Village Frock Pattern I will gladly share, borrow, trade or buy! Please contact me at leah.sewspoiled@gmail.com!

I did find this free tutorial by Simply Together! I am so thankful to have found it. Maybe I can piece the dress together using this pattern for the top and then gather the sleeves. I also noticed that the buttons were not always placed on the right side. Sometimes it is on the left side. If you know more about that process please let me know by writing to me at leah.sewspoiled@gmail.com! I would appreciate any and all information about the Village Frock.
These website have helpful pictures and instructions.
Does anyone know more information about this adore dress pattern?
Please share and post a comment here!

You have a great tutorial here: http://mizoal.de/2009/03/12/how-to-village-frock/ .Translate it via Google translator from german to english. Maybe you can make it without actual pattern.
Also Meg from http://wehmeyerfamily.blogspot.com/ is desperately trying tp find this pattern. So maybe you could check her blog from time to time, or contact her.

This girl was sharing her pattern http://seekyogicstyle.wordpress.com/2010/03/19/village-frock/ (see comments). So maybe you could contact her. I posted this earlier but somehow my first post has disappeared .

I, too, am desperate for this pattern. I've searched and search with no luck. :(

The buttons can be placed on either side of the bodice successfully. It just depends on which way you cut out your curved neck piece. I've made several of these dresses and get the buttons on opposite sides each time it seems.
