 does anyone have a link to any Lolita patterns?  not just like the ones in the GLB, but i mean any patterns in general? see, im trying to find a project to satisfy me, and i thought of making handbags, bows, hats even.  anything would be appreciated, and just to be sure, yes, i have looked around the web, but i want something that the community likes, and so i thought there would be no better place than here to ask.

i snatch up random simplicity/butterick/vogue/mccalls patterns that have design elements i like and end up drafting the rest. I ended up picking up a really nice sweetheart bust line dress that had a nice waist, right where i would expect a non-empire waisted lolita dress to begin poofing, and figured "yeah, for 1.00? this is mine". *loves sales*

I would check out retro patterns though, and you can change the sleeves and bust lines, and such. 50's skirts can be pretty full. I had to pick up 6 yards to do a 50's style bridesmaid dress.
