Kawaii DIY-How to Sew a Cute Thanksgiving Dress(elastic thread method) – Lolita Fashion

Basic sewing skills of how to sew Lolita dress for beginners.

Yumi King is a Youtuber who frequently posts DIY videos for making your wardrobe cute!  Turn annotations on if they are not showing up by default~

If I had to add anything, my advice would be to fold your edges under TWICE if you try this out yourself, rather than just once as shown sometimes in the videos, and backstitch at the beginning and end of sewing every line as well. n_n

Note, I don’t think she knows the significance of the pink ribbon on the print if this is meant for a Thanksgiving dress. nn;  However the print does not matter for tutorial purposes~  I only figured the combination of brown and pink were beautiful~

Hime Rose Garden Party Dress + Process Pics and Pattern!

Friday, June 19th, 2015

Hello!! (^o^)/  For the past few days this week, I have been working on sewing this dress!  It has wide bell sleeves, like a peasant top, and I decided to make it out of solid pink fabric and a beautiful pink rose print fabric, which made it look like a garden party dress~  I’M SO IN LOVE WITH IT!!

It is not a Lolita dress because the skirt is not long or full enough, however I am considering adding a wide ruffle trim to the bottom of it to add several inches (although even then it still will not be full enough to accommodate a petticoat).

I also made a wide headband out of the pink fabric, which is elasticized at the back, and a big bow from the rose fabric, which is attached with a pin on the back so it can be removed from the headband and pinned elsewhere.

Wednesday, June 17th, 2015

Today’s selection combines a few different items from the TaoBao brands Bobon21 and Candy Rain!  Btw, I always want to type “BoBon” as “BonBon”… for perhaps obvious reasons.


Soft & Lovely Sheer Chiffon Wrap Skirt

This skirt is long and sheer, making it light & fluffy like something an angel would wear!


Lace Shoulder Drape Chiffon Dress

That soft fabric over the shoulders is among the most gorgeous touches
I’ve seen anytime recently.  I’m so inspired to sew something like that!


Kawaii Schoolgirl Sailor Collar Blouse

This comes in three colors!
A good and simple piece to have in your wardrobe,
versatile for making lots of cute outfits out of!


Princess Floral Jumper Pumpkin Pants

The bloomer-like shape of the shorts is the absolute cutest!!
The rose print is an elegant and mature upgrade to the traditional jumper look.


Sweet Pink Plaid Suspender Skirt

The soft sheer overlay for the skirt adds a layer of dreaminess!!
I really need to get some suspender skirts in my wardrobe,
their shape is so precious.
