My latest obsession is wanting to make myself some fabulous gothic lolita, and victorian style clothing to wear to conventions, renaissance fairs, LARPing, and to parties. Or just whenever I feel like it.
Too bad spring semester is just starting and I won’t have any time to sew until spring break. So all I can do for now is dream and scheme about all the cool things I’m going to make once I have the time. I have been scouring the internet for all sources of inspiration and have come across a few good sites. Here are some that offer free patterns or tutorials.
I have also found some really great inspiration on ebay. Not that I can afford most of the lolita clothing on ebay, but its still worth looking at.
I mean, LOOK AT THAT.
Look at THAT. You can find these dresses at this ebay store. Free advertising, there you go. This merchandise is gorgeous. However, I have not bought anything from this store (because of how expensive these things get) so I cannot advise you on the quality of their clothing. Though at $120 a dress, I bet its pretty good.
I am truly in love with that blue dress, and I want to try and make a similar skirt this summer. I have also been filling up my sketch book with ideas of things that I want to make both for my lolita looks and to use up some of the extra fabric that I have lying around.
I’m especially excited to pair some fabulous skirts with my new overbust corset. Now if only I had the time!
