This dress looks liek it would be very very easy to make http://www.etsy.com/listing/94795563/whimsy-couture-sewing-patterntutorial Also there are tons and tons of pillowcase dress tutorials online for free. that might be a good place to start

On phone so can't link but search tie dye diva on etsy, she has some beautiful dress patterns, they are slightly more advanced but her instructions are very clear and easy to follow

Farbenmix patterns are very good for beginners as they do a step by step tutorial online for every pattern.
Patterns like Anna are very very easy and give you lots of options to make your own style ;)
