No worries, Rahzel-- we're all just trying to help you, and keep you from spending extra money or getting really frustrated over your project later on!

If you can't find a single pattern that works for you too, you can also frankenstein patterns together, like Penlowe was saying-- take the sleeves from pattern A, the bodice from pattern B, etc. and combine them to get the exact garment you want. That said, if you're doing this, I highly recommend doing a mockup with something super cheap like muslin to make sure your parts all fit together.

Personally, I'd figure out your under structure first: hoop skirt vs crinoline vs petticoat (or some combination, etc.). Once you have that, you'll know how "big" Lelouch's skirt is actually going to be, and be able to work with the rest of the patterns accordingly.
