@lazyjane:  

Teri Jon used to have a very similar dress amongst their collection: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Teri-Jon-NEW-Gray-Silk-Chiffon-One-Shoulder-Embellished-Toga-Formal-Dress-12-/330992498577?pt=US_CSA_WC_Dresses&hash=item4d10b0b791

The basic pattern for this dress is quite simple: a one-shouldered dress with a diagonally cut overlay similar to an asymmetrical Kaftan. I don’t know if you can find an exact pattern, but have you thought about posting a request on etsy.com? There are many talented people who may be able to make a similar dress for you based on that picture. A qualified seamstress should also have pattern-making abilities. In the UK, all dressmakers and seamstresses learn how to draft patterns. 

I’ll keep looking for a suitable pattern. Have you any sewing skills?
