I totally got busy and forgot to get back on and say which patterns that I used for my zelda dress... anyway what i used for the bottom dress:
http://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m4450-products-374.php?page_id=110&search_control=display&list=search

and for the top I used this one:
http://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m3571-products-4051.php?page_id=521&search_control=display&list=search

I just lengthened it, and then folded it in half with the side seams in the middle, and then cut and angle into it, so that is would have the triangular cut into the front and back if that makes sense... I also sewed up the back seam instead of adding buttons like the pattern shows.. I hope that helps ya out!

Wow how many people actually read the forums and don't reply?

Your lucky you got responses at all no one has to tell you how they made their costume! First of all you posted this question on 4 different threads and second you are being very impatient, and frankly kind of rude... so no one is going to want to help if youre not polite..

Did you try doing a search on the forums to see if the question has been answered before? That may help too.

Part of cosplay is figuring out how to make things on your own there isn't always going to be a tutorial, so if it is too hard to figure out you may want to try the costume out later or get it commissioned from someone.. sowwy to be harsh I'm not trying to be but you have to be more patient with these forums.

I would delete the other ones if I could and I wasn't asking people made their costumes, and yes I did look.

Also this was generic comment because usually there are 5+ times the number of views than posts

I guess you also read about 5 different threads before answering 1? You don't have to post a reply for every thread you read ;-)
And people are interested in reading about others' (your) work, even if they can't directly help you!

Well, if someone needs this dress done, I can make it for them and the front would be handpainted to match the actual design. Let me know if interested. -uniquecreator

I just bought a pattern for my Ocarina of Time dress. It may pass and work for Twilight Princess Zelda, if that's what you're doing? You never said. xD

But this is the pattern I am using:

http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/patterns/sewingpatterns.pl?patternid=7967

It has a nice tiny train in the back but will need some alterations, though, I draft my own patterns when sewing for some things. It also does have a lot of really nice back patterns.

Hope maybe that will help. ^^

A quick search in the main Zelda thread turns up a number of results, including mine posted 2 years ago, in which I said:

"You should check out the Simplicity 9891 pattern. I used this pattern (specifically dress B) to make my Zelda dress and the bodice. It doesn't involve much altering. Just don't make the sleeves. For the bodice, I used the same pattern, but cut it in the right way so it made that point in the back. It's VERY easy to use. Check out some of my pictures in my gallery to see what the dress looks like."

Trust me, nearly every question you could ever have about Twilight Princess Zelda has been asked in the main thread.
