I have see this dress in person (I'm a display coordinator for Anthro) and it is pretty straightforward.  The only hard part might be the drawstring at the waist.  Otherwise, it's a basic skirt and surplice neckline.  In the back the straps cross...really cute!

The skirt section is quite straightforward - most likely just rectangular, but you'll need a lot of fabric as it's very gathered - you could probaby put a casing on the inside for the drawstring - just make it wide enough as it uses a wide ribbon drawstring as opposed to cord. To make it look like this you'd want to use a fairly thin fabric - the thicker the fabric the more bulky it's going to look.

The bodice is separate, not really sure how to explain how to make it - you might want to find a pattern that has a similar bodice and copy that.

The straps - just make sure that you cut them long enough so that they can cross over at the back and then try it on before you sew them in, they'll be sewn into the middle of the outer-layer and the lining.

The dress is most likely lined as the fabric seems to be thin.

I searched sewingpatterns.com and you might be able to use this
pattern:

You'd just have to add the casing for the bow on front.

I found this exact same dress pattern in the Spring Mccalls today and I wrote down the number for you but now I've lost it. However, I know it's in the spring catalog  It even had the drawstring with the casing for it and everything, you would need to change the sleeves though possibly. Sorry I can't remember the number! M5039 is also similar to it as well, Mccalls also. Hope this helps if you're still looking.
FOUND IT!!!! McCalls M5316
