Pattern 117B from Burda World of Fashion 5/2009. Dress has cap kimono sleeves, draped front bodice, and a fitted skirt with side slits for walking ease.
Great design for bold prints.
The only challenging bit of sewing is the gusset of the kimono sleeve. For a great refresher on how to sew these check out this blog entry http://sewtawdry.blogspot.com/2009/07/burda-wof-509-dress-117-michael-kors.html
