Someone remind me to buy this. I’m serious. SEND ME A PM SAYING “HEY BITCH! BUY THIS!” 

I’m so serious. I will be so mad if I don’t get it. I just can’t do it *right* now. 

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. 

Sublime Stitching: Gothic Grandeur Embroidery Patterns

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!
