Details of swap:
You will be making at least 1 large Lolita Style clothing item, like a dress, skirt, or blouse, so you must be able to sew! Altered tshirts etc are allowed, but would fall under the medium category, so you need to be able to sew at least 1 item of clothing from SCRATCH! You will also be sending one medium & one small item. These other items can be store bought, but the large item of clothing must be handmade. Please see below for size chart (I've made it lolita specific) help. You can send extras if you wish, but please check with your partners!

Please be aware that everyone has a different body shape & size, so you must be comfortable crafting for both smaller & plus sizes.

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A skirt, a jumperskirt, a onepiece, a blouse
-Medium = Altered tshirt, head bow, a necklace, a bracelet, wrist cuffs, socks, a bonnet
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, hair clips, a ring, a phone charm, a keyring

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

I reserve the right to reject anyone from participating, those with negative feedback are not allowed, & those with a long history of poor communication or late sending may not be allowed either. Remember to get a tracking no. within your own country, & a mailing reciept when sending abroad.

Good communication is vital for this swap, please pm me/your partner or post on the swap thread with your progress at least once a week to check in!

I just scored a ruffler foot and a rolled hem foot. So I'm totally down for this, of course that's providing the Canada Post lockout gets resolved.

Wow you make peach look so GOOD!

I've always avoided salmon-ey pinks like the plague, but now you make me want to put together a peachey coordinate. :3

I just started following your blog a little while ago.

And I can't wait for the swap! Good for you for putting it together! Cheesy


I do personal swaps! Especially of Lolita, Hime-gyaru, and fairy-kei related items!

Please let me know when another swap like this is happening - heard about this through the LJ EGL group which prompted me to join craftster, but now I have to wait 30 days - *le frown*
