Vintage Style Dress Quest

I really, really want to make a vintage style dress like this

This is an image from an Etsy shop called ‘Heart My Closet‘ .   I have already bought two dresses from her and they are excellent.  She makes them to fit – just send her your measurements – her prices are beyond reasonable –  the fabric she uses is gorgeous – she will line them on request for a small supplement and I am sure I will use her services again in the future.

I love that back detail.

It’s just that I would love to have a go at making a dress just like this.

So, my question is, does anybody know a vintage, retro or current pattern that I can get my hands on which is similar to this one without me having to make too many pattern changes as I like to be led gently but firmly by the hand when I’m sewing.

Just thought I’d ask .

Otherwise, I’m just going to have to buy this one!
