okay I'm going to college soon !!! and i'm taking a hair thingy course! o.o I really would prefer to wear lolita everyday but I don't want to risk having people's hair dropping all over my pretty dress or when i learn to wash hair or mixing dye. I thought perhaps if I buy a loli apron and only wear it when I have to do "hands on" stuff I'm willing to get a very pretty apron from baby or angel not sure which i like more and get it dirty BUT! is there other options x.x??? suggestions please???
I'm not big on the bags, but I love me my brand tags. I hang them on the wall like a collage of brandwhoring awesome. When I get enough they may be worth a photo or something.
I think the bag and tag hoarders should start brand bag/tag trading. It's like card trading, but for brand whores. Because in the end, no lolita has enough useless hobbies.
But I put off mine for ages because I was always having better, new stuff coming, always always always, and now it's all here and I'm all settled and yeah.

I HOPE THAT WAS NOT TOO UNBEARABLE
(Also, OT but I fully recommend this band I am listening to, especially if you are sick of prettyboy j-rock.)
Last Friday I went out with my friend Emily to hang around downtown...
Does anyone have any good tutorials or instructions for making a half elasticised waistband for skirts? Like how some skirts have a regular belt waistband, but a segment of the back is elastic? Thank you much in advance!
I hardly ever post on this community, but I stumbled upon this little gem on youtube and thought some of you may enjoy watching it. It's part of an old silent Alice in Wonderland film. Apparently much of it was destroyed but this is what was saved and cleaned up. I know this isn't blatantly Lolita, but Alice does tie in with the fashion...that and this video is just really cool. Enjoy!

1) Any Angelic Pretty halterneck items?
2) This OP in colors other than shown?
I saw this dress, and thought that fabric would be terribly cute for lolita. For the seamstresses here, I would love to see one of you turn that dress into something a lolita can wear
I've pretty much got my waistband problem solved, but now I'd like to know if anyone can explain/give a tut. for making a gathered pleated skirt like these:
I have a pattern for the second one from the most recent G&LB, but unfortunately I phail at Japanese, and I'll be using fabric that's all in one peice, as I'm basically altering the skirt of a dress that I've cut off. If someone has a translated version of the instructions for it, that'd be really helpful.
Sorry about two of these in one night, but I'm trying to get a project completed for an upcoming meetup. ^-^;;
(PS. I tried memories, ljsearch, and google, just in case this has been mentioned before.)
Please 2 be wearing these with piano key pattern lolita
