I dont have a pattern for you, but I think its a beautiful design. Id go for the bright pink ribbon, even though its sooo common. Yellow might be nice for the season Smiley

That sort of looks like Butterick 6534.  You could easily add the bow and make the straps longer so they would cross.  You might also want to make the skirt slimmer, but I'm not sure exactly what you're going for.  Good luck!

Thats a very pretty design.  I think it would look pretty no matter what color you use.

Although not the same, I think McCall's M5383 view A has a similar feel to it.
