I fell in love with a Herrera Spring 2012 dress that I would like to emulate, even if I can't do the exact same thing. I am looking for suggestions on a commercial pattern that would be similar in to the link below: (on this link, you should see a knee length, v-neck dress with a red bird print, dress #22 in the collection).

I am looking for something with a similar cut to build on. Thanks!

Cute! I would start with looking at New Look and Vogue Very Easy dresses; I suspect you can quickly find a similar silhouette. Looking at the pic, I wonder whether the center front seam means that each half is cut on the bias - it's hard to tell with the print.
