I want to make a really cute shirt dress, but I'm having trouble finding a suitable pattern.

The closest I've come is a threads pattern, but I think it may be too matronly.

have any of ya'll made a shirt dress? And, if so, what pattern did you use?

thanks for the help

In the latest Vogue Pattern magazine, there is a really cut shirt dress. The number is V8352. I haven't made it, but I am going to. There is a thread on Craftster where a member made a really cut shirtdress. If you do a search, you could probably find it.

I'm making this pattern today! I'll let you know how it turns out (hopefully sooner, rather than later).

Do you mean this Threads pattern: Simplicity 2996?  I don't think it's necessarily matronly - it looks a bit frumpy in the pictures, but I don't think it's because of the pattern.  I think that would make a nice starting point, even if you want to change some of the details.  Also, a lot will depend on your choice of fabric and the fit of the dress.  Some contrasting trim to break up a solid color is nice, and if you want to go with a print, I think a medium-large scale print is more interesting than a tiny one.  Here are some other options for patterns, but also keep in mind that you could convert a shirt pattern you like into a shirtdress fairly easily by making your own skirt pattern pieces.

Simplicity 2923 - not my favorite, but the blouson effect works for some people
New Look 6815 - This one has really nice vertical lines with the shoulder princess seams
New Look 6704 - The tunic version could be easily lengthened into a dress

For something entirely different..
Butterick 5023 - this wrap dress has a shirt-style version with a collar.
