For at least one of my formals (the Kiwi equivalent of prom) this year, I'm planning on makng a dress similar to this:

I plan on it being pretty much the same, except without the puntucks and rick-rack on the bodice. So, does anyone know of any patterns with a similar shaped bodice? Or any patterns that are similar in general?
If you can help, I'll be forever in your debt. Thank you in advance!

That Butterick one threegirlsandaboy posted looks right on, but here's another option: New Look 6723 - the neckline is more of a curved boatneck rather than having the square shape of the inspiration dress, but the overall look is the same I think.  Cute dress!  What fabric are you planning on using?
