thankyou muchly ^^ that'd be this one: http://therosesaresilent.blogspot.co.uk/2012/01/op-tutorial-reveiw.html
I absolutley love these! especially the headdress and a tutorial on that would be sopmething I'd be super happy to make a version of!
just a couple of quick pointers based on your full outfit shot, I noticed you're lacking skirt pouf which is possibly the most important thing. make sure you've obtained a good (bell shaped to go with this dress) petticoat, there's loads of tutorials on here plus you can get them for cheap on ebay: apparently flora weddings is a good UK one and victoriangirldress is the best international, also if you're prepared to spend a little more to get the top reccomended seek out the classical puppets bell shped petticoat for instant and slow to deflate pouf. also your makeup is a too harsh to go with this outfit so I'd reccomend searching up sweet lolita makeup tutorials on youtube, lenses and eyelashes optional of course.
I love to see what you've done though as its so original and you'd probably make a nice bit of pocket money selling these online!
I really love how this is in keeping with the current styles!
only, like I've seen as a trend along your work, the skirt shape seems awkward. here it looks a little too short, and I think you may be having petticoat issues. which petticoat is pictured here?
you've used the pattern perfectly though and that cut is wonderful on the bodice.
oh hey :D I see you've found my little creative splurging place hehe
it takes practice, but the best way to be confident in having a different style is to love what you're wearing! 3 years ago it was hard to wear my creations out of the house and hear the insults, but today I started my second year of college in an outfit I love and got loads of compliments! confidence is key, always hold your head high and walk with definite strides. that way you can't lose :)
wow, these look both simple and intriucate at the same time. the bird cages really pop out at me, they're so beautiful. these illustrations remind me of the celtic themed coluring book I had as a child ^^
it's not nearly as good as these, but this is a thankyou card I did for a friend of mine. hope you like it!
I know those feels- voile isn't the worst fabric but its definatley getting there -.-' luckily my machine is pretty adept so no major disasters.
as for patterns, this and a lot of my other dresses (not skirts- they're just all rectangles to me) is a vintage pattern from a charity shop altered and combined with other patterns, parts of it self drafted. in this case the bodice was an empire waist wedding dress pattern which I lengthened, and brought the neckline up to avoid showing cleavage. the sleeves were from an old 80s wedding dress which I had to shorten and reduce a bit, finally the skirt was self drafted. it takes a lot of practice, a lot of following other people's tutorials and possibly a few pattern drafting classes (though when I started college I already knew nearly everything they taught us somehow o.o) to be able to do it yourself quickly and easily. I really benefited from a few yers of using these tutorials: http://fyeahlolita.blogspot.co.uk/p/lolita-tutorials.html
and finally- looking like a doll has also taken a few years practice and much observation of real dolls :3
wow you did an amazing job on that :)
goodness me that looks amazing on you :D
the lace was ripped, which was the problem to begin with :)
have fun in japan ^^
glad to hear it ^^
Wonerful! another bowie fan here tee hee
cut out & keep wouldn't let me post the link...
yes, it is. that way it can be worn with different tops as well. in a fashion as expensive as lolita, versatility is key ;D
reviewed on my blog!
nicest lolita dress tutorial I've seen on this site! woop!
lol, although it isn't particually a lolita skirt, I still love it :)
It's really cool- I like the way you've reversed the colours. however, why do you call it lolita?
It's a compliment if its ment to be one :) although, I can't rellay see a similarity. thanks!
actually when I looked at the photos I took, I did notice it looked like real lace XD
that was fast! and thank you! :3
your first? wow, you nailed it!
oh my. at least you admitted it's bad. my first lolita sewing project was real bad too XD you learn on the job
it's really cute! but rather shiny XD
hey it's cute!
I used to do this with clotted cream fudge! then I ate it! yay!
OMG! I wannit!!!
I wanna see that film :)
tis a chef hat!
lol ok sorry about that :D
just had a thought. pair this with a woolen wig and pathchy old pinafore dress and wallah! rag doll costume! yay!
aww i'm loving that fabric!
um, camilaustral, alot of lolitas would be very offended if they saw your comment. take me, for example. I'm a lolita :D
and Felecity, the lolita fashion actually dosen't have anything to do with the book. they just share a name. the fashion comes form japan and the word has a different meaning round there. thats why some people call it goth-loli, but this is not correct, especialy when adressing lolita as a whole.
It's a given that this makeup isn't lolita at all. It's what we'd call ita makeup. an ita is a person who attempts lolita but gets it horribly wromg.
for more deltailed info on lolitas, I'd reccomend shopping around EGL (http://community.livejournal.com/egl) and/or taking a look at this site: http://www.lolitafashion.org/
theyr'e both really informative if you use them right.
oh yeah, and if you wanna learn more about itas I like this post on F yeah lolita: http://www.fyeahlolita.com/2009/10/how-to-avoid-being-ita.html
hope this helps! I hope to post my own lolita makeup tutorila at some point!
wuuuaaa! I can't crochet!
it's so super cute, hard to resist!
this is a real good idea :3
