Unfortunately I can't offer much insight since the photo is too small to be able to see the details (where's the site that has zoomed-in photos of things like this?!).  To me it seems like the top and pleated bottom are sewn together.  Perhaps you can use a pattern for a pleated skirt (there are a few here at craftster) to make the bottom?
The top looks like it's shape is being held by the straps.  The hanging fabric in the front looks to me like two pieces of double-lined material, with one ends of both pieces significantly wider.  If you tie the two pieces together towards the wider sides (looks like somewhat un-evenly), it would create that drapey-tie thing.  The two thin ends would then be sewn to the back of the tops to form the straps.  Whew! 
I'm not an expert seamstress by any means so please take my advice with a grain of salt or five.  'Best of luck makign this top--it's beautiful!

You say 'kitschy' like it's a bad thing.

No pattern, sorry.  The bust is fairly obvious but I think it's attached to a bubble skirt with a giant [faux] bow in front.  (Potentially faux because of a lack of obvious loops)

Maybe if you described what pieces you think it's made up of (explaining the version you want to make) someone will have a more helpful suggestion.

I can't imagine that there is a pattern though, since this design is so voluminous.  Although I suspect you might be making a less puffy version to wear in the real world?  Even if you found a base halter or something, it would take a bunch of extra work to get the 'skirt' right and to sculpt the bow...

Good luck and so on. : )
