    Have you tried the websites for the pattern companies themselves? They will list all the patterns that they make. Hope that helps. I've been looking for Disney material (for almost a year) that has a tropical look to it, but I haven't had any luck. We were suppose to be going on a cruise, and I wanted to make outfits. I'll keep my eyes open for your pattern, and maybe you can keep your eyes open for my material! LOL

    I just went and checked around, and it looks like Simplicity makes them. As you said, the adult ones aren't listed on their site, but have you tried asking at WalMart? You can call any local WalMarts and see if they have them. I've seen the Disney costume patterns there before, I think there was adult ones. They would be put away somewhere because they are considered halloween, but if you get the right person, the supervisor or something, they would know if they have any in stock somewhere. Do you belong to any sewing memberships like FabricLand or something simular? They would search their stores for you too. I might be driving into the city on Friday, so if you haven't found anything by then, I'll check around for you.

    Ok, I found the Tink, Peter Pan and Captain Hook. Unfortunately, it only goes up to a kids' size 14.

    If you want it, it's yours.

    I have to got back to the storage room 'cause I had a senior moment and forgot to look for the Jasmine and Aladadin.

    I'll be Back!
