I have too many clothes and I need a little money right now, so I decided to clean out my closet of the things I don't wear enough. Some of the pictures didn’t turn out well (I had to use my camera phone), so I apologize. All prices are in US dollars.
Rothschild Girls Size 14 Winter Coat

Shoulder and collar:
Faux corset and beautiful back sweep of the coat:
Close-up of the velvet faux-corset & bow:
I bought this coat on eBay secondhand but it's in very good condition. Rothschild is a high-quality brand of children's clothing whose coats are sometimes perfect for Lolita. This one has a fitted, double-breasted bodice that swells into a pleated, voluminous, bell-shaped skirt that will accommodate a skirt and petticoat very well. It has a black velvet sewn-in corset on the back for decoration and matching black velvet covered buttons on the front. There are two fake pocket flaps on the front of the coat. The black fur on the collar and cuffs is very soft and realistic-looking faux fur. The outside of the coat is made of 100% wool (so it's heavy and warm) and the inner lining is a nice silky material printed with the Rothschild name and label. The sleeves have a slight puff at the shoulders to complete the Victorian look.
The only detraction of this coat that I can see is the way the covered buttons on the front are slightly loose. They don't seem like they'll fall off anytime soon, but I thought I should let everyone know that they are a bit loose. At 35/27 measurements, this coat fits me, but it could also fit someone bigger or smaller depending on the person’s measurements.
Overall Length = 40 inches
Bust = maximum 37 inches (best if not too tight… remember that layers of clothing underneath will make it tighter)
Waist = maximum 35 inches (please regard the same precaution as above)
Sleeve Length = 23.5 inches
Original Price: $200
My Price: $80 + $10 shipping in USA (it’s heavy)

Close-up of shirring panel on the back:
This all black blouse from Bodyline was discontinued a while ago, but it was one of the best pieces on the site, in my opinion, because it’s decorated with pin tucks, ruffles, and shirring instead of cheap lace. The material appears to be thick cotton that is very soft. The long sleeves have small puffs at the shoulders and elegant ruffles at the cuffs. The back has a panel of shirring that helps the fit of the blouse. There is a side zip to make it easier to put on. I have worn the blouse twice, but it is in great condition.
Overall Height = 17.5 inches
Bust = 36-40 inches
Waist = 34-38 inches (meant to be worn loosely)
Sleeve Length = 25 inches

Overskirt lifted up to reveal underskirt:
Two-button choice closure:
Close-up of flaw at waistband:
I commissioned this skirt for myself from In the Starlight, but the design is very similar to their "Princess Skirt" (seen here in pink a few skirts down the page), but I requested cloth ruffles instead of lace. The gathered overskirt is made of black cotton and the attached underskirt is made of black & white striped cotton. I don’t know why it looks so crooked in the photo. Oops. The back of the overskirt comes up to reveal more striped material so it has a bustle effect. The waist has no elastic, but it does have two button sized closure, which means the wearer can adjust the size of the skirt one inch by buttoning on the first or second button.
The only real flaw is a small white bit on the waistband near the button closure on the back of the skirt. It came to me like this from the seamstress, so I can only assume it had something to do with the sewing process. The flaw is not really noticeable because it's only half an inch long and because it’s on the waist at the back of the skirt.
Overall Length = 20 inches
Waist = 28 inches on second button, 29 inches on first button

[For some reason, the lighting made the next picture looks pinkish, but the blouse is white]
Close-up of back corset-lacing and shirring underneath:
I also commissioned this white blouse from In the Starlight for a separate outfit, but it is too big for me now. The basic design is the same as their "Romance Blouse" (seen here in black a few blouses down the page), but I requested that a bottom ruffle hem be added so the blouse can be worn over skirts nicely. It is made of plain white cotton and has cute puffed sleeves with elastic armholes and little white ribbon bows. There are two ribbons attached to the front so the wearer can tie them crossed around the neck. Small white lace trims most of the edges of the blouse. White ribbon criss-crosses the back of the blouse as functional corset lacing to adjust the size. Finally, there is shirring on the front and back of the blouse, so it can really stretch.
Unfortunately, the buttons on the shirred front of the blouse had a gap in them whenever I wore the shirt because that's just what buttoned shirring fronts tend to do, so I finally hand-sewed a seam in white thread up the front so the buttons were always closed. Then there was no gap, but the shirt has to be pulled over the head because the buttons weren't functional anymore. The seam was practically indistinguishable and I find it easier to pull things over my head anyway, so I didn't mind. However, if the buyer wants me to remove this seam before I ship the blouse, I will gladly do so (there may be some leftover needle holes to deal with, but I don't think it would be that noticeable). I recommend that this blouse be worn loosely rather than skin tight because it will look better that way.
Overall Length = 22 inches

Closer-up (looks pink again because of the lighting… sorry!):
This is a Fan Plus Friend light blue neck/hair bow that comes with the "Fairytale Baby Dolly Sweet Lolita Alice in Wonderland Maid Dress" (seen here in pink). I bought the outfit but decided to use my own hair and neck accessories. It ties with a light blue ribbon around the head or neck or anything else you want to attach it to. It is not very floppy or limp, however, because it has never been used, so it may take a little training to droop correctly like Alice bows usually do.
Height = 6.5 inches
Width = 8 inches
Price: $3 + $3 shipping in USA
Fan + Friend White Detachable Sleeves
View of Cuff:
Close-up of lace and button:
Here is a pair of detachable sleeves meant to go with the same dress above, but I've always preferred a short-sleeved Alice, so I'm letting them go. They are elasticized at the top to slip over the arm and they button securely at the bottom cuff with matching white buttons. There is soft lace at the bottom of the cuff. These are great because they can be worn with many things, namely short sleeved dresses, blouses, and t-shirts. I have never used them, so they are brand new.
Length = 18.5 inches (lace included in length)
Cuff circumference = 9 inches
Upper arm elastic = 17 inches (completely stretched)
Price: $5 + $3 shipping in USA
Folded like it would be over shoulders:
How it looks on the collar of a sweater:
This off-white faux fur collar ties at the front with cord to which two pompoms are attached at the ends. The neck stretches a bit and the faux fur is very soft and wild-looking. The collar can be worn over sweaters, boleros and shrugs, t-shirts, and even coats. The underside is a nice, soft cream-colored satiny material. I've never gotten a chance to wear this, but I cut the tag from the underside because it was itchy when I tried it on originally.
Length (one end of furry part to the other, not including cord and pompoms) = 24 inches
Width = 5 inches
Original Price: $10
My Price: $5 + $3 shipping in USA
Spread out to show most of the volume:
Waistband with elastic:
Fluffy, ruffled bottom hem:
This soft white petticoat has two layers of fluffy chiffon. The elastic waist has a lot of stretch, so it's very comfortable. The shape is a-line, so it's better suited for princess-style skirts or casual skirts than bell-shaped ones. I have had it for a couple of years, but I've only worn it twice. It is machine washable!
Length = 19 inches
Waist = 22-42 inches
