dresses for a teen, in more wearable fabric

My teen is crazy about the styles on ModCloth.com and so am I. But I'm not crazy about polyester, and that's what most of these styles are made in. I'd like to improve the wearability of the garment by making it. (Sorry, I can only make thumbnails of the styles, which you can't see, so I'm posting links.)

Is there a dress pattern out there with a Peter Pan collar, or the kind of collar that's on this dress:

or this one

And isn't this one a lot like one of the Colette styles? (Which one?)

Thanks!

I LOVE the pointy collar on that first dress! I can't think of a pattern offhand with one like that, but I'll check my stash.

Re: the last one, you're probably thinking of the Colette Macaron, sans sleeves and with a different skirt: https://www.colettepa...­ This was Colette's first pattern and still one of their most popular... Dixie's made it 3-4 times and could definitely give you input! Antoinette's made it as well...

Hope y'all had a great Thanksgiving! See ya tomorrow :)

The last one is pretty much the Colette Macaron verbatim -- a few more pleats in the skirt. The other two are also very much like Colette patterns. The peter pan collar look is much like the Violet blouse, though the Violet does not have princess seams. The one with the pointy collar is a little harder to nail down, but at any rate, these are all very much in the Colette vibe.
