I lifted this design from Gothic & Lolita, Vol. 7. I wanted a challenge, which this gave me in spades. The pattern book gave me instructions in Japanese, which I can't read. (I went by the pictures.) I also had to "up-size" the largest pattern, since it was still a size too small for me. I'm so happy with how it turned out, that I plan on making more dresses out of it and buying more pattern books.
Recently, I've thrown in some other things to make this more interesting. Namely, a nice choker over the ruffle choker and my fangs and makeup from my Michelle Morgan kit.
