So I'm into EGL (Elegant Gothic Lolita for those not into crazy Japanese fashion trends, the best resource I can give you is http://lolita-handbook.livejournal.com/
if you're curious!) And my friend had some dinosaur sheets sitting around that she didn't need. So after staring at them for a while, I decided that I needed to make a dino rori dress. And here it is!
The happiest picture taken at a gas pump ever:
(Pardon the badge, I wore this to Animazement, a local convention, and I forgot to take it off)
Full shot off of me:
(That skirt is FULL, I used a little over half the sheet for it)
Bows and lace:
(The bows are detachable, in case I wanted to put them up by the straps or something)
A closeup of the back, shirring was an adventure:
I think it came out pretty well, especially for drafting the pattern myself, it's really my first decent attempt at drafting. And uh...no. Dinosaurs aren't typical lolita-wear. But I'm seeking to change that.
