First post on EGL :D

 Alright lovely lolitas of EGL would you mind answering some questions for me, please?


Alright so here's my problem::

I absolutely adore Classic Lolita and EGA but I fear that I am too tall for them at 5'8".
I also would love to dress boystyle but sadly my bust is a bit big for that ^_^;;;
I'll be getting extensions over the summer that will be about 18 inches so they suit Classic lolita more
And to top it  all off I have a caramel skin tone color so I'm not exactly sure which style would suit me best.

Here's a picture of me if you guys are curious::
-coughs- Sorry it was the best picture I could find. It was my Easter Sunday outfit >>;;

So my question is::
Do you think I'll look better in Classic lolita and EGA or Boystyle?
Could I still pull of boystyle with my long extensions and my new lip piercing? x]

I just want to know because, well, I'm new to this whole Lolita scene and my mom has agreed to buy me my first outfit.
Any suggestions? 

**Edit
Thank you so much for all of your responses. If I don't comment back to you then this is just a little thank you note for helping me out. ^.^ <333

Free lolita patterns

I just recently graduated college, and since I am bored at home looking for a job I decided I am going to draft up some easy patterns suitable for lolita. The best way I think to do this is to find out the most common size of lolitas in this community and from there make grade a pattern for one size below, and one size above that, along with a tutorial on how to grade (or alter the size of) the patterns. They'll come with easy instructions (illustrated) and will be printable on most printers/computers.

So if you could kindly help by posting your size based on this chart, I'd really appreciate it. I know for most of you it won't be exact, but this is what the set of basic slopers is based off of. Also I am not able to make a post with a poll unfortunately, but if you'd like a more anonymous submission, feel free to PM me instead of commenting here. If you are smaller or larger than this you will have to simply grade it yourself, I don't own slopers beyond these sizes and I don't really want to make anymore right now.

Missy
Sizes: Bust | Waist | Hip
4: 33½ | 25½ | 36
6: 34½ | 26½ | 37
8: 35½ | 27½ | 38
10: 36½ | 28½ | 39
12: 38 | 30 | 40½


The patterns I would like to include are a basic A-line or flared jsk with princess seams and optional collar, high waisted gathered skirt with corset back, A simple button up and side zip blouse that include 3 types of sleeves and 3 types of collars. I'll add more if I complete these quick enough, and well enough.

All that I'll ask is that nobody uses these patterns for profit, even as a base. Creating patterns is very time consuming, even basic ones.
