I also have a big ol’ Lolita Resource Dump pages on my site. Here for beginner information, links to brands and second hand shopping, and other random things lolita may want. And here for Taobao shopping guide links shop links.
If there’s info missing you would like to see, let me know and I’ll find and put something together.
I’m thinking of buying this next : http://www.fanplusfriend.com/chiffon-lover-classic-lolita-square-collar-high-waist-tiered-circle-bottom-op-dress-bow-4colors-instant-shipping/
In the light Lilac color! They have a “dark blue” that looks purple in the photos, but a review said it was for sure blue. :< if it was a deep purple, that for sure! Also considering black, but I have… so much black stuff. (not that there’s anything wrong with black) I want some other color options too.
Gonna think on the color more, and order it tomorrow on pay-day~
(I havent told my husband I bought the umbrella, even though it’s sitting on the table )
That pink mesh collar is down now~ I don’t think I have enough yarn to do another collar, so I’m going to make some flowers with the remainder. I need to order more soft yarn. White and black at least…. Maybe cream too. What other colors do you want?
So I just wanted to share this method real quick. This was my first ever lolita dress. It holds a lot of sentimental value for me. But alas, I was unable to fit into it after I gained weight (it was already tight on me when I got it). So, I thought of a way on how I could properly modify it. And it’s quite simple.
You remove the mid-back panel out of the dress (use a seam ripper). And then I used that piece of fabric to cut out a new and bigger back panel (for matching fabric). Then I replaced the skirt part with a shiny bustle. And sewed everything back into the dress. By the way, save the fabric scraps of your dress for later. It can be used to make matching hair accessories.
I hope this helped a few of you out there. Feel free to ask me questions, if you have any :)
The Anatomy of a Lolita
This took forever to finish because I was not happy with the diagram. I wanted to draw something that wasn’t too outdated (like many currently available online). I wanted a diagram that reflects a basic co-ordinate relevant to today’s standards.
If you are a new lolita, please use this as a check list to creating your your first outfit. Never EVER forget your petticoat!
