 Hi everyone! I'm a newbie, but I've been lurking for ages. And using your tutorials =P thanks guys! Anyways, these are a couple of dresses I have made. The pictures are bad quality, but I hope you can see them okay =/

 The first is a gothic lolita dress, from the tutorial by Lamby.

 I look so serious o_O;; I really like this dress, it's all twirly ^_^ the fabric is great, it's lime green paisley. I got it at a thrift store for $1.

 Next is an apron-type dress. I just finished it this morning =D

 I have wanted a dress like this for a long time, and my friend has a really neat one that she let me borrow to copy. Here is the back:

 Ignore my weird tan lines o_O;; that gray string hanging down in the back is the ties for the back of the skirt. It looks weird though, so I might take it out and just put in elastic instead.
 I don't have a picture of it, but I put in the built-in bra part of an old camisole so I've got some support. It took a few tries to make it looks alright, but I'm glad I put it in because it's really comfortable and I don't have to have bra straps going across my back.

 Please tell me what you think ^_^

They both look great! I think you did a great job on the ruffles on  the bottom of the first dress, and I love the fabric combination you picked out for your apron dress. Great job!

The connotations wearing my nerves thin
Could it be semantics generating the mess we're in?
I understand that language breeds stereotype
But what's the explanation for the malice, for the spite?

I think that's the best repro of the gothic lolita dress I've seen - well done!

Aha! I was wondering how you managed that! (Sorry, not trying to be creepy, but I've got the big boobs/little waist thing going on, the same way you do, and I'm always looking for ways to manage cute clothes without big ol' bra straps sticking out!)

Great idea, and good work!
