Okay, I love how the top of Ashley's dress is and I'd like to try and make a dress (or just a top) that is similar to it but I'm always afraid of doing things without a pattern or at least a tutorial to follow because I always make stupid mistakes.

But, my basic idea is to cut two long rectangles (or perhaps triangles?) for the bust part and sort of gather it a little in the middle where it would touch the shoulder and then just another band for the waist (which I would just make longer for a top) but what about for the skirt part of the dress?

Does this sound sort of correct?

Thanks for any help!

Your idea sounds good. For the skirt, make a long rectangle, and fit it into the waistband (gathered, it looks like)

I am not sure, but unless that fabric is a stretch, there will be a zip or something somewhere in the waistband, to enable getting into it at all.

I, personally, am lusting after the other one's jacket thing...mmmmm....

this has nothing to do with the pattern, but mary kate looks so malnourished in these pics.  Give the girl a hamburger!!!
