I personally would keep searching.  You can have dresses made (alchemy on etsy, I think?).  Definitely save images of the dress and show them your ideas.  Also, they can make it out of whatever fabric and color you want.

EDIT:  Maybe you could contact this seller about other gowns similar to this, them making the same gown to your specifications, or give you the manufacturer/maker of this dress.

So I googled some and came across various versions of the cinderella gown (there’s a TON of adult constumes).

Good luck! These are just a couple I found, if you google “women’s cinderella costume gown” you can find more.  The etsy person could probably hook you up with someone who embroiders.

How about Demetrios #GR171 or GR172? Same color, more sophisticated.

If you can’t right click save an image hit your print screen button, open up paint (or similar progam) paste, crop, save.

I would definitely look into Etsy alchemy, just because you set up an alchemy doesn’t mean you have to choose a seller if you don’t find any you like/something in your price range.

I think it depends on your budget. The dress you like is a little too much like a costume for me, rather than a wedding dress. But then I feel that about some ‘proper’ wdding dresses too. It’s a fine line, and I think the detail/fabric/quality of embroidery can make all the difference between tacky and gorgeous….

I’m with cherryshake. But, in a beautiful smokey blue/smokey lilac taffeta with a tulle underskirt, and without the flowers…it could be very nice. I’d stay away from satin and the flower embellishments; that’s what is making it “costume like” to me. Good luck. I love the blue dress idea!

Have you tried looking at prom / quinceanera dresses? Heaps of them will be available in blue and they’re so much cheaper than wedding dresses! Quinceanera dresses in particular will often have the bustling, embroidery and basque waist that you love. Here’s a bunch of google image results:

And a couple of articles on blue quinceanera dresses:
