Here's the fabric I'm talking about:
like I said above, it's 3 yards by 45(?) inches-- more than enough for a decently sized skirt. I'm hoping I can get away with making an over-dress with slits up the sides of the skirt with a ruffled underskirt underneath in white or cream. The left side is the front of the fabric, the right side is the back. The front's a bit shiny, like a lot of silks, i was thinking about using the back instead.
What do you think? Is the fabric too "loud" for lolita? I know purple isn't really a color you find a lot outside of sweet, and even then it's a stretch.
Edit: I replaced the link to the fabric with a new one. It should work now.
