Swing Dress - wishlist

So I was looking for a good dress pattern that would give that 40's feel but have a swooshy skirt. 
I spotted this on a youtube clip.
And thought it could be adapted into a dress. Now I've got to find a pattern for it.
Btw. I love the shoes!

I have been told that it is probably not a complete dress but a dress a little like a 'skater dress' with tie up shirt over the top. Which is do-able with RTW items.
Something like this and this but with sleeves....and a pair of these lovely shoes.

    What about that one?

    1. ooh, that's a nice one. And I find butterick/mccalls fit me the best.
      *goes on list*

  2. Oh that IS a nice pattern!! And overtones of playful shirt dress too, bonus!! http://voguepatterns.mccall.com/v8470-products-7899.php?page_id=857 also?

    1. Ooh, that's a nice one with lots of movement.

  3. Sometimes I wish I could get a pattern with vogue styling but simplicity instructions and butterick sizing. That would be my perfect pattern type.
