Looks like an American site and definitely a bit pricey but they have some beautiful patterns, sigh...

Try and find a top pattern that fits the bill. The skirt bit is relatively simple to work out from first principles and add on?

not the right kind of bodice. However, it could be adapted. I found one on etsy but the shop keeper is on holiday

Had a look from 40's through to 70's on Rusty Zipper and found nothing suitable either
