There were some delays, but my princess dress is scheduled to arrive within the next week! It actually totally coincidentally just happened to coincide with my birthday! :D
I had to hurry up and finish these projects I had lying around!
No self-respecting Lolita coordinate is finished (or started, for that matter) without the very important…
These I was very good about not procrastinating on. I actually finished them in only a couple of days, not long after placing my dress purchase.
I LOVE how they turned out. White fabric with pink polka dots = omg perfection. Add pink chiffon ruffles and little pink bows and you’ve just taken several steps beyond perfection. The bows are actually detachable – they have brooch pins on the back – and the main reason I stuck them on there was so I could tell which side was the front! XD
I followed the pattern with virtually no changes from Simplicity 3618. Here, I’ll include a link so you can check it out for yourself. :D
Cute costumes. XD; The bloomers are short, but I like them that way since it makes them more versatile. I’ve already worn them under some skirts I own, and they are SO comfortable. Plus, I’ve never liked just wearing skirts with nothing underneath, especially concerning the length most skirts are available in nowadays. My self consciousness virtually evaporates when I wear these, since I no longer have to worry about modesty and can just enjoy wearing a cute skirt. c:
Okay! Moving right along to the project-I-totally-procrastinated-on-for-two-months-and-only-finally-finished-yesterday!
A petticoat! Absolutely necessary for that perfect princess poof. I didn’t use a pattern for this at all, only using information I’ve garnered from dozens and dozens of petticoat tutorials I’ve read online. I definitely made some mistakes, but I know exactly what to do next time to make an even better petticoat.
This provides some substantial poof, but the next one I’ll make will have twice as much material and ruffles. 8D Just because that’s what Lolita is all about!
All right, that’s about enough of my gushing over my sewing projects. n_n I am just really proud of them, since I’ve never sewn garments before these, and I love how they turned out! AND NEXT WEEK MY DRESS AND SHOES AND SOCKS ARE GETTING HERE YOU GUYS OMG 8D 8D 8D
Update: Okay so it wasn’t exactly the next week lol but here’s Princess Training: The First Steps. c:
