When I have something that I love & it fits great I generally wear it until it's not fit to be donated. I then break out the stitch ripper & deconstruct it for a permanent pattern. I started doing this after my favorite Hannah Lise skirt bit the dust. There are also ladies on Etsy who sell used Amish/ Mennonite dresses for pretty reasonable prices if you get bogged down or sidetracked from your sewing.
