This is what I wore to meet up with my friend at the aforementioned tiny little convention. Unfortunately I wasn't feeling so great that day, and so I look a bit ill in the pictures. ^^;
This is the same skirt in a not-so-loli ensemble that I wore for my boyfriend's mother's 60th birthday party. It was a huge party with about 80 adults, and I didn't want to explain lolita to them all night long. However, they all seemed to love my skirt, and so that was fun.
These pictures were taken at the end of the night when I was all wilted from the humidity, but I wanted to show how the skirt could be worn so differently.
This is a close-up of the fabric so you can see the details. It's a nicely weighted red cotton print with little girls at a birthday party. You can see them with the birthday cake and the presents in this picture, but they're also playing "Pin the Tail on the Donkey" in one of the other motifs. The black eyelet is cotton and the white lace is cotton and is attached to the cotton lining.
