So i used this from a pattern i got, but it is just as easy to make without. This pattern is great for a cute Alice dress or just a plain Lolita dress. I love this dress at is is easy to customize. I did all of this on notebook so I wasn't able to show the real thing :P
this is directions for the top half because this is the most complicated part. Get a large section of new paper
Measure the length and width of your whole chest (don't worry about it being to boxy you can fix it later.) ADD SOME SEAM ALLOWANCE :D
My model is a little busty, but you should get a square/rectangle shape.
Cut out this shape 2 times
Make a small fold and sew along it to create a smooth edge. This will be the neck. OPTIONAL cut a an semi circle, this will be the neck.
For the other piece, cut it down the middle.
Pin the two half rectangle to the full rectangle.
Measure around from the tip of the shoulder to your armpit and mark it with chalk.
Fold you shirt wrong sides together and sew the two sides together. REMEMBER ABOUT THE ARM HOLE!!!
This was the most trickiest step D: but don't worry i have faith in you
ok so get a square of newspaper idk like just the front page and not the whole square. One page will have 4 folds just use one.
Draw this shape. Think of your arm if you have skinny arms make it smaller if you have large arms make it bigger this is about a medium size for arm.
Make 2 of these
sew the semi circle on the largest stitch size on a sewing machine if you hand sew (like i did) make them around
1 1/2 cm long.
sew the 2 edges together this will be what it attached to your arm hole.
Add a band to the ruffled edge so that it gives it a more finished product. Make the band loose because mine was really tight and it will start to hurt after awhile.
YEAH!! the easy part! Ok so for this step we are just going to make a simple elastic skirt. Measure your half your waist and add 5 inches.
Do this twice.
Pin the two sides of the skirt and add 2 HEMS!!! SEW!!!!!
Know threw one of the hems put an elastic band threw one of the hems this will the waist band.
Sew the band together.
Attach the skirt (it should be ruffled know to the skirt)
Finished Product! :D
