I'm not in an incredibly talkative mood, so I won't bother you with too much stuff to read  Grin

1) Wine red velvet skirt and pelerine
- cotton velvet, cluny lace, cotton/PES trim handsewn cotton velvet applique
- I made the skirt tighter, but I guess I shouldn't have ruffled the waist, I should have made it from panels like the blue one for better shape

2) Light blue set - dress, headbows, hat, pochette
- corduroy, cluny lace, cotton/PES trim and a lot of work!

3) My personal fave, the dark green sleeveless dress
- corduroy (I like it on lolita) and hours of ruffling and making pintucks

4) Classic/pirate-y corset waisted skirt
- printed cotton, the corset waist is shirred in the back, fully lined and partially boned

5) Blue velvet skirt and white blouse (I made the blouse ages ago but never posted it  Grin)
-blue velvet cotton, probably the easiest piece to make

The lovely model is one "local" lolita roaming internet as Taraen, the photographer is my dear Asinx (http://asinx.euweb.cz/gallery.html)

Thanks for viewing, concrit <3

The fabulous things I could do if I had your talent sweetheart.

You've made some wonderful dresses, hunni, and I would love to see more of these loli-goth style outfits! Great work babe! xx

When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.

Sick of lolita?!
Its all so adorable.
I LOVE the green dress. The detailing looks amazing and overall it looks like it took so much time and effort to crank out.
You're an inspiration Cheesy!

im not sick of loli! (as you may know i sew it too Tongue ) i love, i mean freakin ADORE, your bottle green velvet dress. im a sucker for monotone lolita pieces with focus in the beautiful details. and that velvet looks sooo elegant! you've totally inspired me to try some different fabric choices. will you be selling any of these pieces on the EGL_comm? you should PM me if you decide to part with the green one!

Love them all, but especially the green one. Awesome work -- your wardrobe is set for winter. Smiley

They're all gorgeous. I love the green cord dress and corset skirt especially Smiley

lolita style has so many amazing details--they do take a lot of time and effort---your work is beautifully done...the white blouse is particularly lovely---you certainly make corduroy much more feminime...I generally think of it as a rugged fabric, but with lace and trim and ruffles--beautiful!!

I love the details, all so pretty. I wish I could wear stuff like this on a daily basis. Especially the blue velvet..I have such a love in my heart for royal blue velvets.

You may be able to get a ruffler foot for your machine...the one I have is a Singer from the 60's (I think, thank you, Grandma) and it has a ruffler foot option (which looks like a medieval torture device)...so I'm thinking you will probably be able to find one. Mine is adjustable for different types and spacing of ruffles...they've probably only gotten better.
