I love these! I especially like the creme skirt and the damask skirt best. Now if I was just a decade or so younger....lol. You look very pretty in these they really suit you.

These are completely gorgeous! Do you use or pattern or are they freehand? And where do you get your lace? I've in dire need of some. Grin Sorry one more question ^_^"" Where do you get your fabric?

Questions are what I do ^_^

Amazing work! I really like the blue bunny dress and that first skirt with the crown. Amazing job!!! You are so talented.

And by the way, I absolutely love the shoes you are wearing in the first few pictures!

Thank you to everyone who posted a reply! I will get the pictures back up shortly (by the by, none of these are for sale, they are my own and just examples of my work).

ivycircle:  thanks very much. You're never too old to dress pretty!

RaenasDDR: The ivory damask fabric was from fashionfabricsclub. com, and the red/black damask taffeta was from Jo-Ann Fabrics, in the upholstery/flatfolds area.  I get all/most of my lace from cheeptrims.com--but you have to order in bulk.  It pays off in the end but it just LOOKS expensive.  I do a lot of patterns freehand; the only skirt I used a pattern for was the red taffeta damask, and the other ones I just kinda winged it.  After sewing for a while I can eyeball things pretty well.

kittty: thank you!  I got the shoes from the Little Chili Lolita Shop on ebay.

pertelot:  It really depends on the complexity of the skirt or outfit.  Apron skirts are fast and easy, especially if they tie in the back.  If a skirt has a lot of lace and layering detail it normally takes longer, and high-waisted skirts take more precise measurements so those take a little longer too.  I don't really time how long it takes me to make something.  I don't sit and work on something until it's finished; I usually have several projects going on at once in case I get stumped on one project.  It gives me time to work on another one and come up with a solution for the problematic piece.  I like making adjustable clothes because they're a lot more comfortable and if I ever want to sell it in the future it's easier to sell.
