What are good pattern resources for sewing a basic, A-line dress?

So to preface, I have sewn very little before. Basic is key. I have a sewing machine but can do nothing very fancy. I just bought some fabric and want to make myself a pretty, A-line skirted dress. Here are some examples of what I would hope it to look like:
/ Example Two
/ Example Three
How do people make dresses nowadays? Do they still use those thin paper patterns in the sleeve? Can you print out patterns? I would prefer this method even if there's a charge. Am I delusional in thinking that I can jump right into dressmaking after cobbling together pajama pants?
Any dress sewing resources or tips would be seriously appreciated. Thanks!
