My school's grad is in exactly 75 days, so I went dress shopping to narrow down my design when I completely fell in love with this dress.

Here is THE DRESS: http://www.simplydresses.com/shop/viewitem-PD585604

I tried looking for patterns for aaanything similar, but without any luck. The part where I'm really stumped on is the draping along the bodice and how perfectly it folds. Any tips on how to get this started?

I found a pattern on Vogue patterns site v2931 (sorry i'm on my itouch).  It has a similar bodice, and you might be able to do some draping or pleating over top of the actual pattern pieces to get the look you want.  Good luck!
