Help finding a similar print?

So....I'm too big (sadly) for the perfect dress to finish everything up..So I have to get it commissioned..However, I can;t find ANY fabric that looks anything close to what I want..
I was shown the dress by my commissioner for a "is this what you are looking for" type thing..It's perfect in color and print, however Not only can I not find it again....But I can't find any fabrics. So can anyone help? I don't need help finding the dress again, I will just explain it..

It's pink, and has a candy border that's got like lollipops and what looks like conversation hearts on it, the border is more busy then the rest (which is what I want) rather then all over. And it looks like the candy hearts go a little all around. Me and my commissioner have been looking through everything we can think of..And oddly enough, I can;t even FIND candy prints on fabric..No idea why but I can't..

Thanks for the help everyone.

It sounds like Angelic Pretty's Candy Treat to me: http://lolibrary.org/node/3533 I know you said you didn't need help finding the reference again, but it might help anyone looking for fabric to see exactly what you like.

Your best bet for something that super sweet is probably a Japanese import fabric. Here, here and here might be good places to start, although even just searching "Japanese fabric" or "Japanese import fabric" on google or etsy brings up quite a lot of results. It might be difficult finding border prints though, they can be kind of few and far between.

OMG THANK YOU!!!! I thought it was AP but I wasn't sure..I only saw it on the link my commissioner gave me..I think it was on AP's actual site though..
For anyone else that want's to post, it's the pink one (3rd one from the left)

I looked at those and can't find a single one that even looks close to that print..That's the problem..And we have used EVERY search tag and phrase we can think of on as many sites as we can find..Yet there's nothing..And we noticed border ones are pretty impossible..But I the border print will look better with the rest of my stuff..I just don't like the look of everything all over the place..

Hi I'm the one who will be making this dress. (: Yes, that 3rd one is the right dress.
Thank you for those sites Meiki I'll look through those. (:

I'm also thinking of just making a new design and printing it on Spoonflower. Have any of you guys tried that and know if it's worth the price? (:

Well Ichigo....You may just need to do that PDF after all....I just can NOT seem to find anything....Any one else got any sites that would have candy prints that have a good candy border print? It doesn't have to look exactly like that dress, but just be pink and candy and have a good poped blue color? The wig I'm getting is a pink/blue mixed twin curls wig so it has to match..

I am not sure if this is something that could work... I apologize if this is totally not an option as I'm not familiar with making dresses but if you want a border print would it be possible to use one fabric and then sew on separate fabric to the bottom of the skirt as a border?

That would be possible, but it would be wayyyy too much work. xD

We've decided to make out own print and use SpoonFlower to print it. (:

I'm sorry if this isn't too likely to help you but I heard once that somebody found that EXACT print material in a fabric store, Angelic Pretty name and all. It must have been some spare though and an extremely lucky find but just throwing that in there.

Really? That seems very unlikely..I talked to someone that knows a whole lot about that kinda stuff and they said it will be impossible to find that print because AP makes all their prints and won't make any prints on "for sale fabric"
