Style questions! and rambling.

Okay, on those Mary Magdalene dresses... ugh >_< is that a brand or a style of dress? Well ANYWAY I THINK THEY'RE REALLY PRETTY OKAY (let's pretend caps make up for my ignorance)

So on those kinds of dresses, and cutsews that have the criss-crossing straps. Do those attach to the front and back of the collar, or do you tie it around your neck?

Also, can you wear petticoats above bloomers, or just one or the other? Sometimes I feel like a petti over bloomers looks a little trashy in the western "lolita" sense. x_x Am I the only one who feels this way? I'm not sure if it's just my way of thinking, or if it depends on each individual outfit. I get sort of a Lil' Bo Peep feel to it that way, too.

After some practice with my sewing machine, I think I'm going to make one of those dresses/cutsews... but it's gonna be cheap fabric, dammit, because I'm poor in the financial and health/shape senses AND I DON'T CARE.
And to be honest I don't know what the hell I'm even doing with my sewing machine. My mom gave it to me (was supposed to be mine anyway) and didn't give me all of the parts, so that doesn't help. ;_;
