I made these rather simple but gorgeous lolita headbands to wear with my more frilly dresses.
Haven't got any pictures where Im completely made up yet, but heres some basic ones of the bands







To make them is so simple, just cut two rectangles of the base fabric you want to use, I used black velvet and pink satin.
Just sew those together, making the ends round whilst you do this AND sew in long pieces of ribbon in each end to tie around your head while you do this.

then you just sew some lace around the edge and make the laces edges go over each other at what will be known as the back of the band from now on Tongue
for the black one, during this step I sewed ribbon in crisscrossing patterns across the top in this step. (pin those in place first before sewing)

You might need to sew the lace a few times in different spots to keep it from sticking up too much. E.g. I sewed mine two times, at the laces 'border', then close to the headbands edge.

Lastly I grabbed these darling premade rose things my mum had had for ages and hot glued them over the ends. But you can just make a bow or something else creative.

Enjoy!

Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.

hi~Great works there!

By the way,i would suggest you not to cut the pieces of ribbons for the x part on top of the headdress.Instead,go Crisscrossing with the entire length instead. It'll definately look more eyecatching and beautiful!

*would love to see you in made up outfit! Post pictures!!!
