This is pretty but it isn't lolita. Lolita clothing is more modest than that, a lolita dress would never show that much skin in the shoulder area. If you're trying for a jsk you should wear a blouse under it. Also the sillhouette of the dress is too flat to be lolita.
I think you should do a little research on the style before you try again, just because a lot of people think that if a dress has lace or bows on it, it's lolita, and that is not true.

I think it is a bit more gothic Lolita. Still really cool... as long as your going gothic Lolita (^-^)

Lolita's always have such nice things to say don't they? bhahaha right. Cute dress. They are right it's not technically "Lolita" but you never claimed that it was. It's labeled as "Lolita inspired"m and that, it is. Well done.

Hello, these are not lolita dress (yet), but you can fix it.

First - create shirring at the back. It is not nice when fabric is floating around like this.
Or, if it is too difficult for you, create lacing (like on you shoes/corsets). For lacing, sew on your dress small loops, do not create holes to fabric!!

Second - the alfa and omega of lolita fashion is petticoat. You HAVE TO wear one, if you want to be called lolita and not ita(=world which means that it is too bad that looking on that is pain).

Third - you need shirt or blouse under dress, because for lolita fashion standards there is too much of visible skin. Think about Queen Victoria era (you are lucky - today we are not so strict, you just need to hide your shoulders, not whole body). You should have decent decolt too.

I love your color combination, however, I am afraid that your skirt is not full enough for wearing petticoat under it. Basically, lolita skirt is 3/4 of circle.

For better idea of common dress+skirts visit (you need free registration to acces to gallery of dress styles, but it is VERY usefull!).

For better idea of common lolita things read this manual:

I hope this helped you. Happy

I think a nice black peter pan collar blouse under it, along with a nice alice bow in you hair it would look lolita. I usually don't see aqua in gothic lolita, but this is very cute Happy

I think it would look more "lolita" with some poofy sleeves and a high colar to the neck with a small button in the center. The colar could prob have some lace on it? I dunno, whatever you like :]

It is a nice dress, and it looks pretty well made, but unfortunately it definately would not fit into the lolita fashion. I think you have the potential, but take a look at a few more references, and try again! This is my favorite, I learned a lot from it!

I really like it but I'm afraid I have not idea what a lolita dress is.

Do you think you could post a How To?

It would be more lolita with a black or white blouse (with ruffles) underneath Happy

I love the lace straps. Some people might disagree that it isn't exactly lolita, but, it's lolita in your own way, and it was a first try after all. ^_~

be carefull with the lines going that way. The optical illusion will make your body look wider. When the lines goes from top to bottom the optical illusion will be taler.

Sorry for the bad english, i hope you see my point.

I don't know much about Lolita, but as for the dress I say fantastic job. It might work a little better if you tailor it to fit your body a little better though. Not necessarily form fitting, but a little less loose right at the top.

Like the above stated it isnt that lolita, but that doesnt meayou cant make it. Its a very pretty dress but I would add sleaves (you can keep the lace top) and make the skirt a little poofyer, Im not certian of how it would look but a bow on the back and a big ribbon or bolt of black clothe around the middle malook good
