Hi there! I've recently been fawning over this dress and upon closer inspection, it's just way too small for me. But looking at the pictures, it seems that it would be very simple to make my own!

The skirt looks like a simple circle skirt, no worries there, but I've never made a dress with a multi-part bodice like this one has. I absolutely love the look of it and I would love to replicate it.

Do any of you know of patterns, tutorials, how-tos on making a dress like this? Of course, free is always better but if you know of a good pattern I might buy, let me know! It's really just the bodice that intimidates me- I would love to see how all of the pieces actually interact, what is what shape, the angles of them all- and it would be great to get even just some reference. I also don't mind drafting my own patterns at all Smiley
I'd love to make this dress, but I'm fairly inexperienced at sewing garments with multiple parts, especially something as rigid and specific as this!

Thanks so much <3

aha! I found this tutorial http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=119000.0#axzz2ZWfkoUJD which might be just the ticket. But does anyone have any other suggestions?
