You might want to look at Burda Kids' patterns.. They're a bit more cutting edge than most of the American patterns, and there are lots of sizes in each envelope.

Simplicity 2767
is lovely and has all the party dress bells and whistles. Comes highy recommended.
Burda 9612
is a simpler style but still very nice. I made it for my daughters birthday.

Otherwise I really love the Farbenmix patterns, and they have lots of party dress ideas. Even just look at the design examples on the website for inspiration.

sewzanne's has some twirly dresses that would look great with colorful prints--if you click on products then patterns there are 6 pages of patterns. They also have some issues of Ottobre design for sale. You can check out the contents of the issues at ottobredesign.com by scrolling through the issues and clicking on them for more detail.
