does anyone have a link to any Lolita patterns? not just like the ones in the GLB, but i mean any patterns in general? see, im trying to find a project to satisfy me, and i thought of making handbags, bows, hats even. anything would be appreciated, and just to be sure, yes, i have looked around the web, but i want something that the community likes, and so i thought there would be no better place than here to ask.
Hey, I am new to this com. :) First I would like to say I haven't sewn very much, so any advice would be appreciated. I just finished a plaid skirt I was working on *pic coming soon* and I really really want to attempt a jsk! So I am wondering if anyone knows of any loli patterns or patterns that can be modified to be loli?Thank you so much, Jamie ♥
To keep things semi-alive, how about a conversation about the Bodyline contest that's running right now? Out of bordom, I browsed through a massive amount of entries. There's a lot of stuff that just screams "ita," and I just don't get why some of the people drew their entries in SD either. (Sure, it's cute and all, but you lose a lot of detail that way.) There's a few gems in there, though.Does anyone have a favorite?As for favorites, I think it's this one.

Photobucket isn't being cooperative, so here's the link to my picture, instead:https://www.bodyline.co.jp/bodyline/showTBPic.asp?name=/bodyline/upload/tmp3/180_theme_1_13_96943.JPG
I recently stumbled upon this community, and though many of you may already have heard of it and although there isn't much time left, I would like to tell you about this:

I'm planning my first dress. I've made a skirt before, and done multitudes of other sewing projects, but I'm currently trying to plan and execute a cream/white dress for the upcoming holidays. I don't want it to be so ruffles and lace my family thinks I've been abducted by aliens, but I want it to be pretty and girly. I really really like the bell sleeves on this one, and the square neck line,but I think I'll modify the bodice so it's more of a one piece thing, without the bow in the center, or the faux bodice lacing; but keep the ruffled hem, and maybe the eyelet trim. I <3 this shape though, it feels so French 18th century, like there's mini metal panniers on the hips. Also, I'm not sure I like the ribbon the neck, probably go with a necklace. I have a nice simple pearl necklace that would be appropriate. So yeah, any suggestions on modifying the bodice, or where to look for patterns to mod the heck out of would be awesome. Thanks!
( Really quick, rococo loli designsCollapse )
Just wanted to share a couple of sketches...( A hanbok-loli with a fro and A queenCollapse )I hope this comm revives! <3
Hmm, I've been debating making a truly winter lolita dress for a winter celebration. I'm thinking of cutting out several large snow flakes and arranging them to make up a skirt. And perhaps a light blue drapery over the top of it..hm..I can't draw so I can't exactly show what I mean. With a white fleece coat, of course, with small silver snowflakes embroidered upon it, each one different from the others....so it gives a glittering sort of appearance. I'm not sure how to make the top, ribbon on the back of the dress...*sighs* It sounds nice to me... Oh here! I'll give you a picture of the coat I will most defiantly be doing. (minus the cape) Oh! And a muff, I'm such a sucker for muffs, I'm more into the more aristo type of loli fashion.Is that too much?
