Edit: Here's a new version of the outfit - my sister wanted a similar one for a convention and so I made a new skirt and lent her some of my lolita wardrobe. I combined my own skirt with a cage hoop skirt and love how it looks ^^



*****

I made this outfit for a lolita meetup... it's always the same: we plan a meetup, I spend some time thinking about what to wear and decide to make something new xD

I made the skirt, suspenders, fascinator and jewelry.
The fabric and lace is hand-dyed with coffee and black tea... messy, but fun  Grin



The fascinator is a perfect example for quick and dirty work... I made this yesterday night after realizing I didn't have a matching headdress  Grin


The suspenders:


You can see the necklace charm I made for this outfit here.

A lolita meet up?!?!?  That sounds like so much fun.  What do you do there?  And, btw, your outfit is adorable.

Thank you <3

A lolita meet up?!?!?  That sounds like so much fun.  What do you do there? 
All kinds of things actually... today we had dinner at a japanese restaurant and took some photos afterwards, but sometimes we visit castles, museums, have picknicks... it's usually quite a lot of fun ^^

This is the first lolita outfit I've seen and actually thought "I'd totally love to wear that." You look fantastic!
