When I grow up, I wanna be a David Lynch girl

Can anyone identify the dress from Blue Velvet and Inland Empire - or at least direct me to the designers that David Lynch used?

Hey guys, I'm looking for something similar to this dress.

Another shot of the full dress here at 4:54

Laura Dern wears it in David Lynch's Inland Empire and at the beginning of Blue Velvet.

And I couldn't find a complete picture of it but there's a green top or green dress she wears here around 3:26 and she wears it when she's in the alley after shopping.

Any idea who the designers are or where I can find something similar?
Much appreciated and yes, I've checked Anthropologie. Alas.

Help me Internet Kenobis, you're my only hope...

Patricia Norris is the costume designer (as well as production designer). On a film like this and looking at those dresses, I bet she designed them herself and they were made specifically for the film.

I used to work as a prop and costume archivist at a studio, off the rack clothing generally was reserved for lesser characters, horror movies (and other not very arty films) or movies with a much lower look and feel (such as a present day romantic comedy).

A seamstress could duplicate the look you're going for.

Also, and this may not answer your question specifically, there were numerous production notes in this doc: Lynch
