Budget Lolita is making it all yourself! A huge list of tutorials

I know there are a few lists of Lolita tutorials around here, but I haven't seen any recently,  unless I've missed them! So, for my blog I've decided to compile a list of Lolita tutorials, I'm posting these to a sticky page (or whatever they are called!) on my blog, but I figured I would share them here and ask if anyone else knows of any good loli-torials.
List updated: 2/19/11 Added a lot more tutorials!

General Tips and Tricks
Sewing and Crafting Tutorials
Skirts Blouses Dresses Headwear and hair accessories Bows and other decorations Misc. Modifying Lolita pieces
 
Sweets jewelry and deco Other jewelry Decor
 
Patterns  Some of these patterns may be out of print and you will need to hunt them down on the second hand market.
Tops
Dresess Patterns with usable parts (You're going to have to modify these pieces, sometimes add a whole new skirt, lengthen/shorten hem lines, or maybe just add a few details).
  • Free empire waist dress (good bodice, will need to attach it to a properly shaped skirt)
  • Drindl  (The skirt will need to be shortened and some fullness will need to be added to the skirt)
  • Simple darted dress pattern (good bodice, will need to attach it to a properly shaped skirt) 
  • Vogue 8019 (torso shortened, fuller skirt added, click here for an example of it modified into a Lolita dress)
  • Simplicity 3673 (skirt needs to be fuller click here and scroll down for an example of it modified into a Lolita dress. Skirt part can also be used to make a classic high waisted skirt.)
  • McCalls M5619 (need to draft a properly shaped skirt, but the sleeveless and short-sleeved tops are perfect!)
  • Butterick B4443 (good bodice, will need to attach it to a properly shaped skirt)
  • McCalls M6123 (good bodice, will need to attach it to a properly shaped skirt)
  • McCalls M5923 (good bodice, will need the either make a properly shaped skirt or modify the current skirt so that it's flared and can fit a petticoat)
