She's right.  And buying a petticoat won't hurt a bit either.  They're lovely for that extra *POOF*  It's nice.

As far as the dresses themselves go, they're very nice, but for your sake, I'm going to tell you that they're not really lolita >.<  There are some great guidelines at these sites:


I hope I'm not sounding rude!  It's just that some of the girls that are in to loli can get really, REALLY catty.  Your best defense against them is to do it right every time.

Lolis can be really mean!  Your stuff's really cute.  I really dig the red dress.  I bet it would look really cool in a plaid, too.
oh believe me I know n_n I have many books and sites logged about loli, these were just attempts with what I can afford. I'm still learning to sew so these were kinda easy for me. But thank you, and you don't seem rude. You're just trying to help a fellow craftster, which is very nice.

these are a great start! and here's a tip- if you want to get that bell-shape for your next skirt, you will need the material to be at least 3x the size of your waist. Smiley
Thanks so much, I will keep that in mind for next time. n-n

Well I have been trying my hand at dresses lately. I have seen so many beautiful elegant lolita dresses on etsy and ebay, but I am poor and don't have 100-200 (and at conventions I go to, up to 500) dollars to shell out for one.
](Note Im not saying these are exactly lolita dresses, they aren't really.I was just inspired by the pretty ones I see and read about. If you're looking for real honest to goodness lolita clothing there are a bunch of people on this site who are AMAZING. Also, scroll down, someone posted a great link)
So I just went to my local fabric store, bought some nice fabric that was on sale, and a few spools of lace (the cheap kind) and went to town. I didn't use any specific patterns for these, just looked around for some tutorials and examples. My first one came out pretty good.

full body


I made this apron a few months ago, its a little too big for me at the top. I'm thinking of selling it to a friend or something (someone a bit larger in the bust than I am)

And finally a red and black...piratey? dress.

the skirt is alternating black and red. I added ruffles at the bottom and I am somewhat proud of them.

I didn't quite get the bell shape I was going for, probably because the fabric I used is a bit heavy. (it was on sale though >_> )

eee! how cute. I don't even have a dress form, and I like to see how people look in it more than how it looks on a form anyways. You did so well on it.

Blawb! What a perfect name for such a cute little thing. And he looks dashing in those glasses.

Sounds like you went through a lot of trouble for it. I have to say it looks like it was worth it! Very cute.
