I want to make this dress for valentine's day (minus the tie portion), but I have no idea how to go about constructing the bust portion of the dress...is there a tutorial for it somewhere please help.

the bust just looks like a rectangle that's gathered in the centre front, with the top fabric (chiffon?) gathered separately. The tie covers the gathering in the centre of the chest, which gives it its shape. It looks like it would be gathered on both sides as well.
The rest of the dress would just be a big tube gathered to fit the bust .
