1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Two dresses and an apron on: March 24, 2009 11:50:52 AM
Well I have been trying my hand at dresses lately. I have seen so many beautiful elegant lolita dresses on etsy and ebay, but I am poor and don't have 100-200 (and at conventions I go to, up to 500) dollars to shell out for one.
](Note Im not saying these are exactly lolita dresses, they aren't really.I was just inspired by the pretty ones I see and read about. If you're looking for real honest to goodness lolita clothing there are a bunch of people on this site who are AMAZING. Also, scroll down, someone posted a great link)
So I just went to my local fabric store, bought some nice fabric that was on sale, and a few spools of lace (the cheap kind) and went to town. I didn't use any specific patterns for these, just looked around for some tutorials and examples. My first one came out pretty good.

I made this apron a few months ago, its a little too big for me at the top. I'm thinking of selling it to a friend or something (someone a bit larger in the bust than I am)

And finally a red and black...piratey? dress.

the skirt is alternating black and red. I added ruffles at the bottom and I am somewhat proud of them.

I didn't quite get the bell shape I was going for, probably because the fabric I used is a bit heavy. (it was on sale though >_> )

I am very proud of this dress, its my first attempt at making a dress.
Basically all I did was make a shirt with a long waist, and then attach a shirt to it. It came out so well! It looked boring so I added a bunch of black bows.

I made some long detached sleeves because I don't care for my arms very much.

Ok, well this is my first post on craftster. I admit to lurking for the past year, and finally have decided to post some of my stuff that I am rather proud of.

First my skirt.
I did this just yesterday. Having bought about a yard and a half of red stretchy cotton, I wanted to do something with it. So I put together a long skirt. It needed something though. There happened to be an old black t-shirt under the pile of fabric I have in the corner. So to add a little cuteness to the skirt I tore that shirt to shreds and made little bows to sew along it. (I added a small chain for a hint of shiny :3)

Next, the red plaid jumper. I just had some of this fabric laying around and I was jealous of my baby pictures. (Me and my sister were wearing matching jumpers that were so cute)

please excuse the crooked strap, I put it on in a hurry and didnt realize the strap was twisted.

And now for the cute bunny I made for my boyfriend. I am holding it ransom.

I hand sewed him, and he is very floppy, perfect for hugging since my boyfriend doesn't live very close.

Thank you for looking! I hope to have good experiences on here, its such a nice site. (everyone seems so friendly)
