Juliette et Justine Shopping Guide and Review

A couple of weeks ago I set out to order a dress from Juliette et Justine for the first time. Their shopping guide told me that they do, in fact ship overseas. However, it doesn't actually give much detail on exactly how to go about ordering from them.

So, with lots of help from cruxcommissa, I'm posting a step by step guide on ordering from Juliette et Justine!

. . .Constructing a Pattern. . .


So, after finishing a Visual Kei fashion show in October...I'm finally getting to make my lolita dresses! <dances>  Problem is...I like having a pattern to go off of, you know?  Cutting blindly into a piece of expensive fabric is idiotic! >_<'  I have printed a few pattern overviews from a place called Batty Chan and they'll help a lot, but I really need to know about making the peticoat part...I know that those horrible square dance things are a no-no...but how do you give the thing body?  Layers of Tulle gathered at the waist with a light over skirt to smooth out the coarseness of the material?  <sigh>  Assistance please! ^_^
