31  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Advice on how to make lolita dress on: February 29, 2008 04:36:59 PM
I was browsing the Baby,The Stars Shine Bright website and I came across a dress that nearly gave me a heart attack when I saw it, it was that gorgeous.



Sorry about the small pics, they don't have any bigger ones.
I absolutely must make myself a simplified version of this dress. My version wouldn't have the bows with the extra lace accents at the bottom of the skirt, and I'll probably only make one layer for the skirt instead of two. Other than that, I'd like it to be as similar as possible... I REALLY want to do this properly, so that's why I'm asking for your advice. Oh and keep in mind, the poofiness is created by a petticoat, the actual dress doesn't have anything attached to it to create the bell shaped skirt.
My questions are:
a) How would I go about making the bodice of the dress? Especially the bow-like part at the bust...
b) I bought white cotton for this, but it's stiffer and thicker than the fabric used in their dress. Would I still be able to use it and if I did, would it look as good? I was thinking to maybe run it through the wash with some fabric softener.. would it help?

I'd really really appreciate help on this, since I need this finished in about a week and a half. Thanks so much, you guys!

Holy fuck that is absolutely incredible. And thank you so much for using a fat ribbon... skinny cheapo ribbons in corsets make me want to cry. Seriously, it's amazing.

I love all of them. Lately I've been obsessing over lolita/J-rock fashions, and when I saw this post I nearly died.
How did you attach the crosses to the black dress? I've been meaning to make something similar and I have to ask because yours looks so amazing.

Wow, now that is determination. I was actually shocked when I read that you painted on the stripes. I still remember making a stencilled NIN shirt and deciding to handpaint thin lines in this weird design all down one side of the front... I nearly went nuts... so I can definetly respect the effort it must have taken.
