I love sheer over satin, and those colors are fabulous!

Are you talking about whatever they've done to the waist, or over the breasts?

For the breast covering, I would start with a basic bodice and mark it to look like the main bodice piece for one side, including the center extension for overlap, but not the shoulder strap.

I would use that as the pattern for the satin underlayer, then slash the pattern from underarm to center and spread it by about 1/3 its width.  Use that as a pattern for the sheer; gather both edges to fit the satin.
