For the handmade lolitas~

Hello everyone~!

((wow, it's been ages since I've posted in this community (x_x)! ))

Anyway, my question is for lolis that sew their own clothes, specifically about skirts and waistlines--- do you generally make your skirts to sit at your natural waist, or more "low rise"? ((as in more on your hips like popular jeans, etc.))

The reason I ask is because I want to get back into sewing lolita items and have always wondered where the most "proper" place to tailor my skirt would be. I think in general with current western fashion trends, we're all so used to clothes being way more low on our bodies that --- at least for me--- it sometimes feels awkward to have something all the way up on my natural waist.

Then again, I know quite well that it's a balance of... having things on the natural waist which makes you seem taller and more curvy, etc. versus having the skirt sit lower on your body for mere comfort and security.


I guess in the end I just need a push to be more confident to wear my loli skirts higher!
