Does a Jane Marple Mushroom Design Exist?

I've been quietly reading through posts in this community for a while now, and have finally mustered up enough courage to post one myself.

I've always liked fly agaric mushrooms, and have seen a few of them show up in Lolita designs. I'm also fond of Jane Marple's clothing styles. So far, I haven't seen mushrooms of any sort in any of their prints, though I will admit that, since I'm relatively new to Lolita, I'm not familiar with many of Jane Marple's designs. I checked Lolibrary and Hello Lace, but both searches turned up nothing. I've seen Jane Marple mushroom jewelry, but have they ever released any clothing with a mushroom motif?

Thank you for reading, and have a lovely day.

Hi, sorry if this is off-topic, but I found cute mushroom dress on Yahoo japan auction

http://page4.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/d146875491

Don't know the brand though, I was searching for IW.

Hi,

That is a really cute dress!

It's written ハンドメイド.

ハンドメイド = ha-n-do-me-i-do = Handmade.

Thank you for the translation. ^_^ I wish I had the skill to hand-make something like that.

You're welcome!

I hope you'll find the time to learn. For an easy project, you can start with a skirt. ^_^

Putumayo recently released a mushroom print dress, and I think one actually is fly agaric. To my knowledge though, Jane Marple hasn't done a mushroom dress yet.

Yeah ^w^/!

Wow, those tights!

Here's hoping that Jane Marple will release a mushroom-themed set at some point in the near future.

One of the dress designs for シャペロンルージュプリント (Red Riding Hood print, I think) has a mushroom collar (embroidered): きのこEMBカラーのシャペロンルージュワンピース. Closeup of collar: http://www.yamada-dress.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/DVC00005.jpg .

They have a parka with printed mushrooms:ヴィンテージライクのスカラップカラーZipup (Vintage-like scallop zip up). Closeup of print: http://beverly-style.img.jugem.jp/20120325_1058953.jpg .

Their recent Snow White print (non LaForet collaboration) has mushrooms on the print: http://lolibrary.org/apparel/snow-white-velvet-op , http://lolibrary.org/apparel/snow-white-velvet-mini-sk .

I shall keep an eye out for those in the future, as they are all lovely—especially the first one. Thank you for the suggestions!

To my knowledge, there are no Jane Marple mushroom prints (I would def own them if there were lol!) However, they did release a mushroom necklace last year, here's mine, the cap opens up and there is a lil gnome dude inside! Came in silver and gold.

Cute necklace! I have seen a Jane Marple bracelet with acorns and mushrooms, but not the locket until just now. I love how they manage to combine cute, elegant, and quirky in just the right way.

Emily Temple Cute has some prints with mushrooms in them but I can't think of anything JM that has them.

They currently have a few with deer and mushrooms, all of which are adorable, and definitely on the list. ^_^

I found this from ETC and it has chocolate shaped mushrooms, still cute btw!

Those are cute. I'm working my way up to wearing salopettes, as they are a style I haven't really seen until I discovered Lolita, and seem difficult to get to look just right. The mint one is tempting me to experiment, though (mint x brown is such a pretty combination)!

Instead i think the opposite about salopettes: they are easier to coord and wear even if they aren't really Lolita some of them. Hopefully lolita brands renew the concept of salopettes! Before to see them i thought salopettes were ugly baggy jeans overalls or stuff used by little girls, now it's my favourite clothing piece!

It's not JM, but Juliette et Justine has a beautiful dress featuring realistic mushrooms and forest fungi of all kinds! :)
