Vogue 2847 - not exactly the same, but has a very similar look

If you can find a suitable pattern, the dress wouldn't be that hard.  Have you sewn formalwear before?  There is a certain level of trickiness to getting things to fit right, sewing with slippery fabric, etc, but it is doable.  Without a pattern, it would take a lot more time - if you're feeling up to the challenge, you would probably want to make a duct tape dressform and play around with draping fabric.  I'll keep an eye out and see if there are any other patterns that seem similar.  Beautiful dress!

It's as much fun to scare as to be scared.

Simplicity pattern 4401 is pretty similar.
