Lovely dress idea
Anthropology Ihrin Shirtdress
I've always wanted to have a shirtdress, I'm thinking of making something like this based on a pattern I've already got, Simplicity 2403 just with a different skirt, for example Burdastyle 06/2011 117.
I think you can be quite creative with a few basic patterns. If you know how to alter these there is no need for buying tons of patterns unless they are really special. For basic and advanced alterations the best source out there is Helen Joseph armstrong's book: Patternmaking for fashion design
