Dress sewing pattern suggestions

Hi, I am making Morgause's red dress from BBC's Merlin

This one:
http://images5.fanpop.com/image/phot...-1707-2560.jpg

And I am trying to find a dress pattern that comes as close as possible, and which is available in the UK.

Thanks

Your best bet is to take a basic pattern and add the draping and lace top

Heres one

agreed, the thing that makes that dress spectacular is less in the design and more in the fabrics chosen. The red is a (silk? probably) chiffon and the lace looks like it is black and gold, with velvet ribbons over the top.

nice choice! love to see it done.
