Hello, I recently made a goth lolita dress but I haven't sewed the straps on yet because I don't know whether I should or not. Your call:




I have no idea what happened to the ruffles at the back...

That's very pretty. I like it the way it is. I love the ruffles in the back.

Everybody likes pink. People who think otherwise are in denial.

I love this! I would wear it as a cosplay dress, and add elbow-length sleeves with long lace at the edge...but that's only because I dislike strapless, and it's to cold where I live most of the time anyway. If your climate is good, or you just want the straplessness anyway, I say leave it strapless. It's absolutely lovely, and the ruffles at the back look great.

If you can pull of the strapless look, go for it. I bet you'd look absolutely gorgeous in that. Or, maybe, is there a way you can add an adjustable/replacable strap feature, like on some bras? If it can be discreet, that would be awesome.

Ps. Do show an action shot! Wink
