Title: Strawberry Dress, & Puppy Skirt, ft Spoonflower fabric
Post by: Dolly Mixx on June 18, 2011 12:46:33 PM

Hi everyone! Just thought I'd show you what I've made over the last month, firstly this strawberry print dress.







Secondly, I made this skirt with fabric I designed from Spoonflower. I ordered the fabric in the basic quilting cotton, & it is pretty good, a bit thin (so I did line the skirt), but the print turned out great!

Sorry I don't have the greatest angles/close ups, these photos were taken primarily for my blog :) Constructive critiscm welcome!

Oh & I didn't use a pattern for either of these, , just sort of made it up as I went along, but they were pretty simple :)

Both are so pretty and so much fun.  I would love to see you with your hair pushed behind your back to better view the lovely bodice(s).

I just checked out your blog and you wear the loveliest outfits!!!!  AND your fabric prints are the BEST!

These are fom we love colors...they aren't the greatest, I find they slip down a lot, but they are the only option for coloured tights i have found for my size:(

I get tights from http://www.welovecolors.com/ (http://www.welovecolors.com/)

I'm 5'4" and wear a 24 and they fit me with no problems.  You might want to try them.  I don't know what their international shipping is like but you can always have it sent to me and I can send it to you.  I don't mind.  I have an Etsy store so I do a lot of shipping anyways.

I saw your posts on lj. Love the strawberry dress, especially the lace. I'm doing one of my own and was wondering where you found such fantastic lace?

Did you make the cinnamoroll purse or did you buy it somewhere?

Thanks everyone! For anyone else interested in lolita, I'm organizing a clothing swap here on Craftster, here (http://"https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=383493.0")

Teddybearbones - I actually got the lace off ebay, after searching for "strawberry lace"
Angleaya - The cinnamorrol bag used to be a backpack, I just adjusted the straps into a xbody one. I got the original from ebay:)

I love love LOVE them both!

Where did you get the strawberry fabric?

Were you happy overall with spoonflower?  I've heard their basic cotton needs a lining before.
