I made this dress hours before we left for The Cape. It was inspired by this ahhhmazing Oscar De La Renta gown. I went for a shorter, more casual take, rather than the full length version (a project I'm saving for another day). Cutting and sewing the stripes on the bias was a bit time consuming but not overly difficult; it's too bad most of the details are lost within the gathers. :( If you are interested in making your own pattern, I used this tutorial.
