Okay, you may all kill me for this, but I was wondering if polka dots are ever done in gothic lolita? I picked up this really cute dress at a thrift store about a week ago, sort of Harlequin/"Italian comedy"(pierrette) looking, with ruffles at the neck. It's white with small black polka dots and I think if I take up the hem a few inches it would make a neat gothloli dress? Sorry no pics as I am deprived of a digital camera. I'm just wondering if it would be acceptable if I added a few bows, a petticoat, and finished the outfit?
