Question EGL clothing patterns? o.O;;

Firstly, I apologize to the Mods if I have once again put my thread in the wrong section... -hides-

Oki ..
Well, for Christmas I really wanted a new coat and have decided on a Elegant Gothic Lolita style coat.
I do love my sewing, and any chance I get to use my sewing machine, its full steam ahead on my part. (and don't point it out, i might not get it done in time for Christmas >.> but still, I want to make one.)
'course, I've never made anything like EGL style before, and I'd rather use a pattern to get me in the swing of things. - I plan to start making more EGL stuff later on, so patterns would be useful.

... my question being...Does anyone know WHERE to get them? Or do most of the EGL cosplayers make the patterns themselves? I won't assume that ALL of them have bought their EGL stuff ^^;;
However, if anyone doesn't know of anysites to get patterns from but have made their own EGL before without them, do you have any tips or advice? ^__^

Any help for this would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much in advance!

MageLu.

I'm a lolita, so I'll try to help you out. xD Lolitas tend to either use patterns printed in the Gothic and Lolita Bible. Some people just alter store bought patterns and modify it into a lolita style, too.

I'm sorry if I offended you or anything o.o I didn't think it might offend anyone who is Lolita. I appreciate the style, but I guess what you said, I will admit, made me realise I don't know -a lot- about Lolita....
>.< Again, sorry to anyone who disagrees with my using Lolita pattern, despite NOT being Lolita.

Thanks again though! ^______^

why?


Mage.Lulu: I find it is easiest to look at a Gothic and Lolita pattern and then find a similar pattern from a local store and modify it.

But, do not feel bad because someone was being a bit stand-offish. Lolita is fashion and fashion is borrowed from constantly. For example, Scene Kid fashion took the 80s and some basic elements of Goth and mangled them into their own style. Lolita itself borrowed from various styles, so really, don't worry about offending anyone.
