I can wear these things to two of my three jobs--the vintage clothing store or the fashion designer-owned clothing/accessories boutique.  Sometimes I'll wear it when I go out to see my friends or go to a play or a movie or really anywhere that I want.  Church sometimes.  Conventions.  Basically places where I know I won't be getting dirty, ahaha!

I just love them all !!!!!!!!  If I didn't have anywhere to go to wear one of these dresses, I'd invent somewhere to go !!

Did you have a bolero pattern ?  Only I went shopping for one yesterday, and was offered something VERY similar to your cream one, for 140 !!!!!!!!!!

Thanks all for your sweet comments!

Most of my fabric I purchase from superbuzzy.com, Hancock Fabrics, or Etsy (user emicraftinjapan)

The bolero pattern is New Look 6675, but New Look frequently rotates their patterns, so it may not be available anymore.

vme106, I got the tea party fabric from Hobby Lobby (same as the pleated trim on it), and it also came in a purple colorway, which I think I might go back there to get haha!

Lillibet, mostly what I do is choose bodices from certain patterns I like and alter them if there are some non-lolita elements to them.  I don't use patterns for skirts because they're easy.  I will post another day some things that I made for customers/my store (most of this stuff is from my wardrobe.)

Do you wear a petticoat/crinoline under your skirts? They look so full, so I was curious. I love the fabrics you use Smiley

sew.chic, yes, I wear petticoats underneath them.  I have like 6 of them but only 2 of which I use the most often.  I have one for casual/less poofy looks, and one for maximum fluffytime.

crendon, thank you!  I would like the Children at Play dress more if it could decide whether or not it's black or brown.  It's like this weird soft red-black and/or dark dark dark brown, so it's hard for me to coordinate with it, because neither black nor brown look quite right with it =\

i love the circus dress, and the woodland creatures skirt- yay for superbuzzy.com  Cheesy
i know that you say you don't use patterns for the skirts, but how do you get that classic lolita 'bell' shape?! i'm very new to machine sewing and i've never been able to make anything that doesn't pooof out at the bottom like a 1950's poodle skirt  Huh

annachronism, for my skirts, I just cut two rectangles (of 45 or 60W fabric, so total I get skirts that are 90-120" wide) and gather them on the top with my ruffling foot, put on a waistband, and viola!  Or, I just flip a couple inches down and put in some elastic at the top.

Dr. Sews, the three jobs thing is relatively new, and I've been doing a fair bit of sewing for two of the three places (I've made some bonnets and bloomers for the vintage shop, Halloween and Oktoberfest are coming up!  And I make boleros for the boutique) so lately I haven't accomplished much in the way of personal sewing or stuff for my online shop.  Let's just say that I pretty much don't have a social life.

These are LOVELY! I'm intrigued by Loli but really can't wear it (too old, too conservative!) tho I LOVE sewing it up for others. However, I'd happily be seen in public in the whole Lamp outfit. That's my fave, but they're all wonderful. And you're using my favorite skirt pattern, too!  Gotta love straight seams and elastic waistbands and my ruffling foot! Grin  "Rock"ing this!

Look's like you've got an outfit for every occasion, you must have a lovely closet full of Ribbons and Ruffles and Lace. I would love to raid your closet. I've dabbled into Lolita-type outfits but never was really happy with the outcome so I haven't really tried much.
