Request time: free lolita patterns

8.2.09 - 10:18
I've had quite a few requests by email recently. Mainly these have been for free patterns. I'm against violating copyright so I've been looking for open source or creative commons.

Anyway here are a couple of things I've found that could be adapted for lolita:

1. A blouse - JJ's 6009 blouse
This blouse pattern can be downloaded from Burdastyle and printed out at home. You'll probably need to sign up for an account if you don't have one already but it really only takes a minute or two.

If you want to add a collar - theres this how to by ceregana, I've not tried it myself, but theres some good reviews on the site.

2. Underbust JSK - snipsniptutes underbust pinafore
Here is an easy way to make an underbust style jumpskirt. To lolita-ify it I'd suggest making the panel that is 160 cm more like 260 - 300 cm. You could make that piece into 3 sections if your fabric isn't that long.

Hope these are useful!
