Looking for some pattern advice

Well I'm stuck off work due to prolinged illness and going out of my mine with bordom. I want to get sewing/creating again. I have a lovely sewing machine, and my mam's just given me her over locker (If only I had an embroidery machine to finish the set!)

As a result I trawled the pattern websites and came up with a few I like. However I'm unsure which ones would be best. My local sewing shop has a half price sale on patterns, so if I coudl decide I can possibly get a few bargins!

Here's the list of those I like. Any help woudl be wonderful.

A collection of skirt patterns, of which I'm not sure is the best. Could alter a few to look like the lovely corseted skirt that was shown a few days ago. Also I'm asking about the fullness of skirts from those who've seen similar designs without the petticoat so I have an idea if with one they'd fillout properly.
http://simplicity.com/dv1_v4.cfm?design=6813 ; wondering if the skirts are full enough?
http://simplicity.com/dv1_v4.cfm?design=4236 ;Is this skirt full enough or not to be counted as Loli?

Collection of dresses that could be turned into JSKs. Some could get corsetted or shirring in the back for fasterning. I'm looking for opinions and advice
http://www.mccallpattern.com/item/M5657.htm?tab=dresses&page=3 ; This one looks absolutely perfect! But I'd like to know what people think. Alter the halter neck to regular shoulder straps. Shirt looks lovely and full.

http://www.simplicity.com/dv1_v4.cfm?design=6457 - Style A ; Once again screams Sailor loli, but is the skirt full enough? Possible change it to an elasticated read waist with shirring?
http://simplicity.com/dv1_v4.cfm?design=3878 ; I love this one. Just change itto have thicker shoulder straps and have the top layer cotton fabric? Seperate the under skirts?
http://simplicity.com/dv1_v4.cfm?design=4070 - Style D/E ; Make in to a JSK by adding sleeves/straps?. Shir the back? or just use the skirt part and make a corset upper section?
http://simplicity.com/dv1_v4.cfm?design=2851 - Style c ; Toned down a little?
http://www.voguepatterns.com/item/V1089.htm?tab=dresses_includes_designer&page=2 ; shorten the skirt a little?

http://www.voguepatterns.com/item/V2902.htm?tab=vintage_vogue&page=2 ; little work and could look a little like this one http://www.fanplusfriend.com/catalog/DR00035_01.jpg

Odd ones out
http://simplicity.com/dv1_v4.cfm?design=2693 - Style B/C ; Wondering if this would make a lovely ruffled/layered skirt instead of the dress that it is? Of make as a sdress wiht an over skirt/jacket in contrasting colour?
http://www.mccallpattern.com/item/M5825.htm?is=bestseller ; Wondering if these aprons are cute enough?
http://simplicity.com/dv1_v4.cfm?design=5006 - Style A ; Use this for the corset? Possibly skirt B, very much shortened as a skirt?
http://www.voguepatterns.com/item/V1116.htm?tab=whats_new&page=2 ; the jacket only
http://www.voguepatterns.com/item/V2714.htm?tab=evening_bridal_includes_designer&page=5 ; choose slimmer sleeves?

I'm in love with a coat I found on F+F ; http://www.fanplusfriend.com/servlet/the-359/Cutie-FRUiTS-Sweet-Miss/Detail
I'm wondering if these patterns could be altered to make something similar? I'd like ot make a hooded coat with bunny ears, in baby blue wool, with white fur trim, and possibly an all black one also.
http://www.voguepatterns.com/item/V1266.htm?tab=sportswear_br_suits_coats_jackets&page=4 ; lady in brown/tan, shortened though

I already own these patterns, but wondering if any parts would be useable to convert to loli? I'm a little bit of everything depending on my mood... but sometimes a little leaning towards elegant erotic loli... In all black or blue and white... no full outfits yet, but loves, ideas and designs in my head/on paper...
