I don't usually do this sort of thing and ask folks for pattern Suggestions but I've searched for something like this but haven't had any luck locating a pattern. It looks simple enough to make however I'm not really feeling up to the task of drafting it myself esp after dealing with "IKE" clean up.
 
I would be happy with something Exact or something similar, even better if the back of the top could have the "straps" continued rather than a full coverage.

Point me in the right direction.... Thanks a bunch!

I don't know why I can't get the photos to post, but it's the orange/yellow floral shirt in the first few photos of my gallery.

Burdastyle has a dress with that sort of shape:

If you can't find another pattern, you could do Burda's Azalea dress and chop off the length.  If you look at the "user creations" section, you'll see that most people add a belt.  I suppose you could certainly sew in the part of the shirt that looks like a belt, or you could add a separate one. 

Here's a similar one-- the top is round instead of squared, but it's close:

Thanks threegirls. Yeah I have made the azalea dress, it's super cute and have lots of fabric laying around that aspires to become azaleas   ;0) ... However I was thinking the top had a sewn in front midriff band that turned into a tie for the back.... I like those little curve yoked bubble dresses too, and yes I also have other fabric laying around that aspires to become one of those as well,  hehe!

I've begun browsing though vintage patterns and doing ebay searches hoping to get lucky...

Thanks again!
