There is an example about this that I am working on - you can remove the IList implementation in the code since it is about something that I have not finished yet.
The example shows how the original ItemsSource can be wrapped to add a "new button" item. It uses commands which again is not necessary and you may simplify it in your case.
Hopefully the example will be helpful for you.
