Since my “Sewing: How to Read Patterns” panel at Fanime went over so well, and because a couple of people requested it, I’ll be basically converting the panel into written tutorials. (Maybe videos too, but don’t count on it because I suck at doing videos.)
Part 1: Brands, Packaging, & Measurements

I really want to bounce some dress design ideas off of someone. Anyone up for chatting? (In any form you want)
Trying so hard to now start designing out a pattern for this while I’m at work. I want more card slots that what that one seems to have.
I plan on translating a pattern from Gothic & Lolita Bible v21. The MAM drawers on page 102. I’ll post the translation when I’m done! I plan on doing at least these, the Elements shirt on page 103, the H.Jelly & Honey top on page 101, and possibly the Angelic Pretty bag and bloomers on page 100. If you want the others (the AP top and headbbow, and the MAM hat/bag) let me know.
But for now, here is the supply list!
For us Lolitas who like to sew, I give you a nearly perfect commercial skirt pattern. It even has waist ties! It’s definitely a-line, possibly a half-circle or 3/4 circle more likely. If only it weren’t out of print! Not sure how it would take a petti, but it looks like there would be enough room for low to mid poof.
(On a side note, when I’m done going through the Vintage section of eBay for my Finds posts, I’ll be perusing patterns!)
Out-of-print stuff sucks >< But there are items~
Hello! The package was "New Look 6599 Misses Blouses." You can look for it online and download it. It shouldn't be more than $5. Im just learning how to sew. Hopefully Ill be able to make a blouse before I wear my next lolita outfit. :3
oh! Thanks! I’m trying to learn to sew too, so I was very excited to see a commercial pattern that looked pretty lolita-esque with little to no real modification. Good luck on your endeavors!
