I am pleased to announce that my brand "Lily of the Valley" will be collaborating with "Inklings" a screen-printing business run by my friend John.
In short, John's company Inklings and my lolita brand are collaborating on one or two t-shirt designs with lolitas in mind!
With some help from the readers of my blog, I've come up with some designs. These are just sketches and the one(s) picked will be inked and digitally edited for the screen printing process.
1. Basic Bow. This will be printed slightly off center. My personal favorite!
3. Cake (suggested by reader Charlotte)
5. Art Nouveau mermaid, this one is the least obviously lolita.
The chosen design will be printed in Either white or black on a women's fitted tee. This is the tee shirt I am looking to use:
I wasn't able to find a blank tee with puffed sleeves but I will be making tutorials for how to make the sleeves puffed and other "lolifying". We will also be selling blank shirts to use for materials for these alterations.
When the samples are done we will be offering these in a "group order" or "preorder" style with the ordering deadline to be announced.
We haven't worked out the specifics of the pricing yet, but I'm thinking about $20
So please let me know if you are interested in the t-shirts and which designs you like! Thank you!
