I am so thrilled with myself, I have finally gotten to the point as a newbie seamttress, that I can make my favorite style of lolita skirt! I am quite different from most lolis, as I endeavor to utilize reconstructed materials, and I am thrifty on purpose...*gasp*
I used material from a curtain, a flannel sheet which I dyed a beige with tea, and trim I found for an astoundingly low price at my local flea market.
I copied the alice in wonderland design from a shirt I also purchased from the flea market (future project will include 2 alice in wonderland shirts) It is hand-stiched, and it was quite hard and time-consuming! I will also be adding the catepillar's notable line, "Who are you?" along the top waistline with red or black fabric paint. And if I can find any further patience will be embroidering on other notable quotes from Alice's encounter with the catepiller.
