Questions about AP French Café in Blue 
25th-Jan-2013 06:46 pm
Hello all!
So I decided to start to save money for one of my dream dresses, French Café in blue. But before I am really going to start with saving, I have a few questions.

- What am I expected to pay for the JSK (Switching or CR) or the OP? I have seen different prices, from 270$ to 425$. Is the dress still popular or sold often?
- Hello lace says they have around 90cm bust and 70cm waist, but since it has back-shirring, would a 100cm bust and 75cm waist fit? I just want to be sure.


(PS: I'm sorry for my english, it's not my first language)

If you have 100 cm bust, I recommend you to take Chest Ribbon version. It has a full shirred back, adjustable straps and fits my 104/80 perfectly. Switching will be normal too, but It may be a little uncomfortable in bust( not sure), but will be more "well-fitted". I think around 350-400$ price for comm sales looks usuall.
P.S. Just remember that I saw the switching one on one of the 2nd hand store's sites. It was around 23000 yen (about 250$ +shipping). If I were you I grab it immediately - it's really cheap for this JSK! Do you need the link?

Thanks for the information!
Aww, I don't have the money yet, so that's why I'm saving (because I'm getting my first Clothing allowance this month). Can I get the link of the second store site, though? So I can look another time for the dress. =(

Sent you a pm, because sometimes my lj marked my comments with links as a spam! XD

I own the Blue French Cafe OP. I had traded for it, but when I owned the Chest Ribbon JSK, it fit pretty well. It may be a bit snug in the bust, but you should run into no problems with the waist. The OP is fully shirred in the back as well. And it fits me like a dream. Although, the arm cuffs have elastic, I find that it gets a bit tight feeling, when you've been wearing the dress for some time. Also, the price I've seen for just the JSK is anywhere between $280-$350, the OP usually runs about $340-$400.
