Sally Dress Pattern

I need to find a pattern for Sally from the Nightmare Before Christmas. She just wears a simple, plain, V-neck dress, but it seems to be impossible to find!!! Can anyone help me? Here are some pics.

This one would be simple to alter the neckline of.

If you feel up to it, you could make and alter a body block.

Since her dress is so pieced together, I think it would be *good* if it looked a little "not right". Ideally, I think I'd want to drape it on a dressform and use the in-design seams for shaping. You could get pretty close by messing with a body block and since it's not a Perfect Princess dress, there's not the pressure to get an absolutely perfect fit.

I, um, don't actually know what a body block is ^^; I'm extremely new to sewing.

You'd be okay with the "basic front" instead of the "fitted front", the fitted one actually introduces more than you need with this costume. Once you have the basic shape, you just draw on where Sally's different pieces are - and cut them up and tape them together where they're one piece (like you have one piece that wraps front to back and don't need a side seam, for example).

You'd use a cheap fabric like muslin to work out the "bugs" and you could cut this directly to make the V-neck and other details. What I do typically is draw on the thing while wearing (or having someone else wear it) it where I want to cut - then transfer these differences to the pattern.

For modesty, you'll want seam allowances between pieces and clip the seams and press them and have the stitching seen be decorative. You'll want a decent weight fabric.
