Experimentation?

I was wondering if anyone's ever take apart an old or torn cupcake dress? I'm interesteed in a dress on my own, but I'm still poor at pattern making. If someone's taken a dress apart before, I'd be interested in hearing the story.

Also, I have a white dress a friend got me as a gift a while ago. It's too big and I'm not in love with it: should I subject it to experimentation, or take it to sales?

Overall, I really would like to make my own dresses. Maybe I'm getting over confident in aiming for something brand-label worthy, but I would put the time in it. I have ideas that I haven't seen in any indie, brand, or loliable stores. Should I study general seamstressing? Talk to a seamstress?

Please help!


* I should note that the white dress is definately lolita, but of an unknown brand.
** Also, I have sewn before. About six or so clothing items with patterns and a few plushies and a purse free-hand.
*** For clarification, I don't know how to make patterns. This question is about pattern making. Sorry for confusion.
