I've been lurking around these pages for about two weeks, searching frantically for tutorials on how to make skirts. Gladly, I was successful, finding a wonderful underskirt and over-bustle skirt tutorial. Much thanks for them!
Now.. I have been following (very loosely) lolita fashion for about 2 years, a bit less perhaps. I've always been extremely interested in it, however my mom thinks it's somewhat a joke, and doesn't take it well.
I decided to take on a little..challenge of sorts, over spring break. I'd make a lolita outfit? I'd never actually sewn clothes before, so I was unsure how that'd work out, and my money is certainly not bountiful. Anyway~ I wore the outfit today, so I decided to take some pictures, and.. since the theme is lolita timelines, I guess I will be starting mine right here and now!
Pleased to meet anyone and everyone.
My outfit (oh my.. I know just by looking at true lolitas and reading.. there are many things (everything?) afoot that are (is) incorrect! Pardon..) :
Over and underskirt: both made by me
Blouse: Good Will (Oh goodness, it's see-through T_T)
Bow: made by me (Bad lace... Ahh..)
Bloomers: (unseen, but made by me..they also have bad lace..)
"Petticoat" : Made by me, it's not very good.. at all..
Shoes: They are black... Eh.. I don't own light shoes...
Socks: Some random knee-highs (I wish they were OTK)
It was supposed to be sweet lolita~ I didn't end up using any pink as I had intended, so it's just all blue and white~ I'm not sure it's so sweet =P
Back: (It's pretty crooked.. Didn't line it up right when I tied the bow.. woops~)
Thanks everyone! I'd love to hear critique, all the wrong things, possibly.. anything right =P , and evolve (if my mother possibly allows me to.. I will definitely not be buying anything online for a LONG time..)
So long for now.
