I love this shirt from Shanghai Tang:

But $240? I am pretty sure I could make this myself for about a tenth of that. Any ideas where I could find a pattern like this? I can't draft my own.

Dang! Sorry about that!

It's the first item on page 5 of the Spring Summer 06 Women's collection, the "Cartoon" Qi Pao Shirt.

I'm not going to be too helpful since I don't have time to do a thorough search, but I don't think you'll find something exactly like this since mandarin collars and princess seams together aren't so common... however I think you could probably take any plain mandarin collared shirt and adapt it for yourself without too much trouble, eg. if the front neck is open, duplicate the front bodice eliminating the opening and creating a new front panel with vertical darts, that sort of thing.

Although someone here could probably point you to a very similar pattern and make me look lazy.  But then really I was just replying to let you know the link was broken so someone else would help you : )

Thanks, jaded. Merging/morphing patterns is something I have been avoiding -- this may be a good place to start. Thanks again!
