That site is brilliant.  And it's perfect for me, because my boyfriend is learning Japanese as his second language for his international business major.  I can make him translate it all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!    Grin

For the sake of saying something constructive, EGL skirts are probably quite easy to do without much of a pattern. 

http://gothfashion.info/  Go to the projects section.  There are directions for a circle skirt and a net skirt.  The net skirt would be good for a petticoat for puffyness.  The circle skirt would be easy to alter to whatever you want.  Like.... Make it black with white lace around the hem.  Or make two layers on top of each other and do ruching on the top layer.... stuff like that.

I also recommend this pattern, to make a *really* poofy loli skirt you just make the lines straight or leave as is for a more casual loli look, it's got the bell shape most loli skirts have: NEW Look 6462

I've noticed that Japanese lolis make their skirts with panels shaped like trapezoids--small at the top, larger at the bottom. They wear petticoats underneath for perfect puffiness. A skirt in this style shouldn't be too hard to whip up without a pattern, depending on your sewing-skill-level.

In America, lolis wear more circle skirts than panels. My current loli project uses a circle skirt with a petticoat underneath.

Look at pictures of both and see which style you prefer. Since you want it puffy, I think your primary concern should be the petticoat--make that first, and use LOTS of tulle.

Good luck!

i was actually thinking sort of a bell shape. so that it's sort of roundish.

and then get a petticoat for maximum puffyness.
