I really want to make Euphemia's gown from Code Geass, but I can't seem to find a pattern or tutorial for it anywhere. If someone has made ot or knows how, may you provide some guidance? Thanks so much!!

and that's the problem with cosplay (especially with clamp designs) there are no real patterns that exist without altering them.
I know for the "shaw" type thing, there are patterns for those, you'd just have to make, oh gosh what's the word....scallops! aha!
that's probably the best tutorial.
as for the actual dress, just find a pattern for a sleveless dress and then add the scallops and then create the "drape". if you're unsure of yourself, get some cheap cotton and try it on that first.
i'm sorry if any of that doesn't make sense. but also here's the code geass thread. you might find something else. also try the search option, i'm pretty sure people have asked this question before.

Look for a commercial pattern that has the same silhouette and structural details - big skirt, strapless bodice - and then modify it from there. For the bodice you'll need a sturdy underlining and boning to hold it up; for the skirt you'll need a hoopskirt and/or fluffy petticoats.

For my Euphie dress, I made both the white skirt and pink skirts using a circle skirt pattern. You don't need to buy a pattern for that, it's just a big circle. If you Google a bit, there are circle skirt calculators online that will tell you how much fabric you'll need for the length of skirt you want. The white skirt I left as-is, the pink I cut up to make the scalloped edges.
You definitely need to do a mock-up of this first, since there's a lot of pattern modification.
I used this (http://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m5321-products-4901.php?page_id=110) pattern for the bodice, but I left extra fabric on top to make those scallops.
I can't find the exact pattern I used for the bolero, but it was similar to this (http://www.simplicity.com/p-2375-misses-jackets.aspx). Again, I cut it up to match Euphie's outfit. I cut the sleeves near the elbow (where she has the red trim) and added an extra piece with the scallops cut in.
There's also this website (http://cosplaykobo.sakura.ne.jp/code_geass/index.html) (which does have Euphie patterns), but the patterns are very rough and would need to be resized to fit you. I mainly used her progress images as a reference.
