vme106, I got the tea party fabric from Hobby Lobby (same as the pleated trim on it), and it also came in a purple colorway, which I think I might go back there to get haha!

Lillibet, mostly what I do is choose bodices from certain patterns I like and alter them if there are some non-lolita elements to them.  I don't use patterns for skirts because they're easy.  I will post another day some things that I made for customers/my store (most of this stuff is from my wardrobe.)

Thanks all for your sweet comments!

Most of my fabric I purchase from superbuzzy.com, Hancock Fabrics, or Etsy (user emicraftinjapan)

The bolero pattern is New Look 6675, but New Look frequently rotates their patterns, so it may not be available anymore.

Thank you!  Yes, I've no more closet space so it just sorta piles up @_@

The cuteness overwhelms me! Where do you wear this stuff? I love it so much!

I can wear these things to two of my three jobs--the vintage clothing store or the fashion designer-owned clothing/accessories boutique.  Sometimes I'll wear it when I go out to see my friends or go to a play or a movie or really anywhere that I want.  Church sometimes.  Conventions.  Basically places where I know I won't be getting dirty, ahaha!

Thanks, everyone! ^_^

I actually just added ric-rac trim to the peppermint dress, at the same point where the bow is; I thought it just needed something a little extra and it looks better now.

That model was really something awesome.  She rolled around in leaves, climbed on top of a miniature house, sat in dirt, climbed trees...she was just a great sport.  Plus, it was about 50F here that day, near the end of the four-hour shoot her hands and nose were getting red, poor dear!  Her dreds are relatively new so she's still getting used to giving them all the attention they need, haha.

I'm at it again!  I wanted to make an assortment of Christmas items, but if they don't sell I don't want to have to store them for over a year =\

First up is the Peppermint Princess Capelet and matching Boatneck Dress set.  This was my first time doing a boatneck dress, and Capelets are my new fave thing. =D

Christmas Cupcake skirt.  I LOVE any sort of print with cake or sweets on it, I hope you do too!

And here are some shots I took from a photoshoot a couple months ago with a model in Dubuque, Iowa.

Classical Lolita Halter dress

Spider Web Dress

Alice Skirt

OMG what a beautiful Lolita dress!  Very well made, and the print is very unique for a Lolita dress, but it WORKS.
