Wow, this took like forever, but mostly because I am really lazy. Anyway, here's how I do my patterns for cosplay. I never was able to work with bought patterns. If anything I can use basic patterns and alter them to my needs (like princess seams). Since English is not my native language, some steps might be unclear or badly explained. Please ask if you don't understand what I did. I'll try my best to explain it to you.
