Need your help guys! I'm getting married April 4th and still don't have a dress. AHHHH!

I'm about halfway through the drafting and muslin process, but I saw this today when looking for some sandals (getting married on the beach). I really like the simplicity of the design. Any ideas as to where I could find a pattern? I haven't had much luck so far.

I really don't want to buy one. I've been sewing for so many years, and for such a special day it doesn't seem right to purchase one. Even if I were to do so though, it wouldn't be from David's Bridal. No way I'm wearing polyester on my wedding day!

Take a look at Simplicity 3784. It doesn't have all the details of the dress you're looking at, but if you're comfortable with altering a pattern, you can easily add the crossover bodice and ruching details.
I recently made a bridesmaid dress with this pattern and made similar design changes to match what the girl wanted. It turned out well, so is certainly doable. I looked long and hard for a pattern and this was the best halter-style formal gown pattern I could find.
Congratulations on your upcoming wedding, and good luck on the dress

Well, that has a lot details that I haven't necessarily seen in one parttern. You might be combining features.

It has the strap that goes around the neck, a faux-cross over front, one bust gathered, that same side gathered. Yikes.

Perhaps start with Vogue 2880. There are a few that have that strap set-up, such as 1016.

It's by no means a perfect match, though.

You could try McCalls 4444.

I think a combo of the Vogue 2880 for the front and overlay (cut off the shoulder straps and add in the halter, extend the front right to the side seam and skip the lace-up detail) and the Simplicity 4444 for the foundation/strap/back, would work really well. You'll probably have to work out some details with a muslin but most of the pattern work would be done for you with those 2 patterns.

I'm VERY new to this site, & this is my first "help you" suggestion. I think the other ideas, especially McCall's 4444, & Vogue 2880, are very good. While I haven't sewn this pattern yet, Simplicity 4577 might be of some help to you as well. It gives you options in the bodice, including a ruched/gathered overlay. I know whatever you choose, it will be super!
