Please help: how to fix torn tulle. (;_:)

Hi gals,

I need help to fix some torn tulle on my BABY dress. (-__-;)

I was really careless when I put on my dress and ripped out/apart some of the tulle around the bodice area! * still can't believe I did it*
The tear is easily 6 to 8 cm long and looks quite obvious.

Is there some way to repair tulle that's torn? It's really fine and thin...

Removing the whole panel of tulle from the bodice would be my last resort because the dress is brand new! (;____;)

Thanks in advance for any help/advice that you can give. m(^_^)m

Lolita Survey

Hello fellow Lolita's!
For one of my Fashion Design classes we have to do a marketing plan--and I have chosen to do it on a Lolita dress. If you have the time would you please fill out this survey in honesty because I need to know demographics---In the future this may become a reality too so this will really help me! :D Thank you!!

Wearing Different Brand at a Brand's Store or Event?

I know this sounds like a weird question, but what is the perception on wearing let's say, a recognizable Btssb jsk to an Angelic Pretty event or store? Or vice versa?

Are there different perceptions depending on the country the event is hosted (Japan vs USA)?

Are there different perceptions depending on whether or not it's a competing brand (AP which is more sweet vs Victorian Maiden which is more classic)?

I personally have worn a non-AP dress to the AP magical boutique and tea party but thinking about it now- I am not sure if it was polite or not to do so >_< '

more questions on washing

So far I've been taking my dresses to my dry-cleaner, who is wonderful, but the service is rather quite expensive and that's inhibiting me from wearing my burando as much as I'd like. So I was wondering if anyone who owns these dresses have hand-washed them -- with or without special treatment, salt or vinegar.

Thank you!

Angelic Pretty prints as of 2010

my question is
which prints as of now
would increase in value /  which prints are lickely to decrease in value  and  which prints stay relatively about the same price 
for resale ?

example : cherry berry bunny  or milky chan print
will these dresses/increase decrease in value bought second hand(resale)  or retain the original store price ?
what is the average price of a used print jsk?

are OP's or JSK more expensive at resale ?
why is the sugary carnival print so sought after ? do people really admire the artwork on it or is it for other reasons ?

i hope my writing makes since as English is my second language

What would your idol think of lolita?

I'm sure all of us have someone we look up to in real life. Whether it's a celebrity like Rihanna, or a humanitarian like Ghandi, there's someone in our lives that we look to for inspiration. Well, here's my question: what would your in real life hero/idol think of lolita?

I'll start! My current idol is Hugh Laurie, the lead actor in the doctor drama House, M.D. As a person, I think Hugh Laurie would think that it's pretty cool. I'd love to have tea time with him while dressed in lolita! X3 As Dr. House on his show, though, I think House would think that lolita is weird, and he might even criticize it as something I do to make up for the lack of interesting things that ever happens in my life (of course, he'd totally be snappier and wittier about it, lol)

I also find Mother Teresa (no joke!) as an inspiration for me. She'd probably look at lolita as an extremely selfish and vain thing, but being Mother Teresa, she'll word it in a nice and encouraging way that will totally enlighten me to throw down everything and join the Calcutta nuns. (Exaggerated, but you know what I mean.)

So, what do you think your in real life idol/hero would think of what do you think your in real life idol/hero would think of lolita?<input ... ></input><input ... >
