Where can I find a pattern for a modern dirndl-style summer dress?

I would like to make some dresses in a style similar to this
, or this
, but I'm coming up blank for specific patterns. The stated style is "dirndl," but I definitely don't want a Bavarian milkmaid costume - just a fitted, pretty summer dress. I found this vintage pattern on Etsy
, but it's for a size 14, and I'm a size 4. Searching for the pattern number (Butterick 3410) turns up totally different dresses. I am not looking for an Oktoberfest style with an undershirt or anything like that, so not this
Does anyone know of a pattern available for sale or on eBay that's of a similar style? Failing that, if anyone knows of step-by-step instructions online for making a dress like this, that would be great as well.
