Baby Merveille Doll jumper skirt

I was wondering if anyone owns this JSK and if so if they have pictures of it worn?
I think it's really pretty, but I fear it might be really short on me and I would like to see it on a body rather than a dressform if possible.
Also, if you own it, could you shed some light on the bodice fabric? I'm having a hard time telling if it's a lace overlay or a brocade from the pictures.

Old Anna House Stock Photos

Hey everyone. I'm in search for some of the old Anna House design stock photos but none of the stock websites seem to have them. It would be back during late 2008 that the designs I'm looking for were around. Is there anyone that happens to have the stock photos from that time period? The two dresses I'm specifically looking for are one with a green flower print and a the other a peach flower print. Thanks for the help (I'm trying to make my sales post as visual as possible since my camera skills are shotty).

Fit's Dance Support - Make your own video!


Because my lack of being able to read Japanese, I kind of was unaware of the meaning of the 2nd stage.
Someone translated for me and it appears that we can only win of we get "supporters" for Misako.
This means other people uploading their video and picking Misako as their Idol.
Would people from here be willing to do this??
I think it would be also very fun to get a overload of Lolita's dancing on the Fit's channel haha!

Under the cut I'll explain how to submit.

Question: Ordering from Taobao while in Beijing?

Hello EGL!

I have some quick questions! ^_^
I've been wanting to order from taobao for a while now, and I'll be going to China (Beijing) in October. I'll be staying there for three weeks, probably in a hotel or hostel, since I'll be visiting China for my studies, and with my classmates. I have some questions about ordering from Taobao while in China! ^_^

Gosu Loli pattern help?

I've been wanting to us the nurse-lolita pattern from volume 3 of Gosu Loli for a while, but I'm wondering if anyone here has used the pattern and could comment on the sizing. For the medium and small sizes there seems to be 12 cm (4 3/4") of ease at the bust and 6 cm (2 3/8") for the waist. Did that work out for any of you? It might be my inexperience as a seamstress but to me it sounds like a lot, even thought the pattern has waist ties. Although I do want the final garment to have a 28" waist like the medium size calls for, I'm worried that it's going to be way too big at the bust and shoulders.

TL;DR: has anyone made it and found it too big at the bust and shoulders? It would save me some time drafting. ^^;

Is this the first time AP re-release something??? Because it's the first time i ever saw them do a re-release...

Theme post: In and Out

I'm a really girly girl by heart so most of my outfits in and out of lolita are all very feminine >///<

I like wearing lolita very much but in my country (Malaysia) it's always hot and humid 365 days a year so it gets too hot to wear lolita most of the time.

Also, when in lolita I garner too much attention on the streets and I prefer to stay out of the limelight because it gets too tiring. I wish I could wear whatever I want without people staring at me 24/7. OTL
