No help, but I know what you mean. I’m having the same problem as I start looking.

Look for a dess you like and then you can add a lace top to make it halter or to have a higher neck and sleeves.

They definitely exist!  Keep looking, and if you don’t see it in a sample explain what you want to find to a boutique shop especially if they have a design you like without the sleeves… the company may already have a modest version of the gown!

maybe take the elements from the ones you love and see what a seamstress can make?

I’m not sure if these will be on target with what you’re looking for, but here’s a couple ideas:

I wish I could remember the designer, but I know the store if you’re interested.  And excuse how awful I look in it, I don’t do the dress justice.

I wouldn’t limit yourself to modest since you can always add a fun wrap/bolero or just alter it to make it more modest. 

Find dresses you like and then figure out how to make it suit your taste.
