this biggest thing about shantung is that it sheds like CRAZY. so you'll either want to finish your seams or line your dress.
i'll see if i can find a pattern somewhere..

So you want a waist seam in the front but not the back?  I don't know if that would hang right, unless the whole thing was a sheath dress, with a mock panel sewn to the front, creating a faux waist seam, and then sewn into the side seams, sort of like a sideways bubble dress.

ETA: This dress from burda style (without the sleeves) http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/60s-dress-by-alexandra would be a good sheath

This one would be good to start with: http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/do-you-like-peaches--2  You'd just fold out the pleats on the pattern pieces, and then if you wanted to try gathering the front piece, just add width at the center of that piece.

LMAO!!!  Sorry!  You're right, I totally misunderstood.  I thought you were showing front and back and...my eyes glazed right over the third one.  Still, I'm glad those patterns may help!

If you're looking for a boat neck, this is a good pattern: http://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m6464-products-15234.php?page_id=108.  Hope that helps.
