Hi Lola, thanks so much for your comment--and I must say already that I adore you because you're down with Daniel Clowes.

1. Yes, by all means, try out the tutorial! It's a very simple EGL skirt that always gives such a great effect!

2. The skirt most similar to the tutorial is the "sweet bow and skirt set" above the Red Riding Hood costume.  And I'm glad you like the costume! It was such a pain in the bum to ruffle stretch fabric, and the inside looks absolutely atrocious, but it looks good.  How did I get it so poofy, you ask?  I had purchased a squaredancing petticoat on Ebay some time ago, and it was so full that I actually cut it in half and sold the other half on Ebay.  Now, it's still ridiculously full (as you can see), but it's not as impossibly large as what it used to be.

3.  It is important to note that a Gathering foot is not the same as a Ruffling foot. I've not had very good luck with a gathering foot, but I don't like messing with my tension anyway.  I highly recommend getting a Ruffling foot, because if you've got plans to make lots of frilly pretty things, it is so easy and cuts time enormously. This is what it looks like: This actually makes tiny pleats in the fabric, instead of just bunching it up.

4. I'm so glad you like that skirt, it's definitely one of my favorites, and so easy, too! I will post a tutorial for that apron skirt later on today.   Would you believe that I'm actually wearing three skirts in that picture?!  I made a black raschel lace skirt, which I use underneath apron skirts, and it's nice to just have a plain black loli skirt =] Here's a picture of it!

Also, a great place to get trims and lace, etc. is cheeptrims.com; I have my own custom clothes making business, and that site has a great variety of laces and braids, so get yourself some bulk lace!

23  Crowned Skull, Daft Punk, and I heart Jared Leto shirts! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by Silversark on: January 02, 2007 01:25:37 PM
These are my first stenciled projects, and I think they turned out great!  I like the bleach stenciling a lot better than paint stenciling-it's quicker and it gives a really neat disheveled effect.

Here is my friend with the awesome Daft Punk shirt I made for him:


The skull wearing a crown shirt I made for myself:


The I Heart Jared Leto shirtI made for my friend. The nose got kinda messed up  Sad


tell me what you think!

Hello fellow seamstresses (and seamsterrrrs..)  Here are some of the many Elegant Gothic Lolita skirts or skirt-and-headgear sets I have made over the past year or so. Tell me what you think!

Probably one of my favorite skirts I've made yet:

I thought this fabric worked perfectly with my Alice in Wonderland shirt:

Another favorite of mine, a Gobelin print apron skirt:
The back of the Gobelin print skirt:

A skirt I made out of an old table cloth of my gramma's, with pretty rose venise lace detail:
The back of the tablecloth skirt. I also made the black raschel-lace underskirt and the black velveteen jacket with rose lace detail:

Come on strawberries are cute:
