so i've been wanting for quite a while to make a dress similar to this one:


a friend of mine wore one just like it except hers was a halter with very thin ties.

i would like the one i make to have the halter thing going on as well, but that part is easy enough to figure out.
i know how to make a bubble hem. i would just need to figure out how to size it so it fits that high up. the pattern i have puts it  smack at my waist.
this, also, not so difficult to figure out.

what i really can't wrap my mind around is how to make the bodice.
i've been looking for a while for a pattern with the same thing, but i've come up with nothing.

any ideas on how to tackle it?

Your best bet might be to make a "skirt" that starts at the top, then just drape a rectangle (or two) of fabric over your chest until you get the look you want, then tack it down. You could attach the skirt to empire or bra-shaped top, then do the draping, which might give a more fitted look. Practice draping with a scrap, then if you need to trim a little to get it right, you're not using your good fabric.
