Lolita Kitty

Last Updated: 04-30-2012


A lolita costume I made with a "kitty" theme. The white shirt, Kitty paws, white tights, extra full tulle petticoat, and pink satin shoes I purchased.
The white underskirt is cotton (rectangular panels) with white ruffles in the back (unseen) that help create a small "bustle". Under the white skirt and tulle petticoat is a cage hoopskirt to help keep the shape and the fabric away from my legs. The aqua flower and kitty boarders are cotton flannel. The borders were part of a panel of fabric that I cut apart to create the stripes I wanted to use (ie there were other stripes on the fabric I did not use). Both the flannel borders and pink ribbon were carefully sewn on with a top stitch. I don't usually like to use top stitch on ribbon because if not done exactly perfect it shows, but I did on this one because I am just using it as a hall costume.
The bustled overskirt is made from brown wool suiting. The same pink ribbon as the underskirt is on the edges. The light pink fabric is flannel, accented with gathered white cotton strips for trim, and a smaller pink ribbon. I'm not sure where I got the cotton lace, (it was part of my scraps collection). The large light pink bow is satin, and has pink ribbon sewn on the bottom in a lattice work. The small front bow is same fabric, with a loop in the back to attach to the shirt. I secured the silver bell with the small pink ribbon, sewn into the bow.
The bodice is made of the same fabrics as the two skirts; wool suiting, cotton flannel, pink satin ribbon, and cotton lace. I boned the bodice because I originally planned to wear it without a corset (and later decided to still wear my regency corset for comfort) I used the same lattice work design on the bodice as I did on the large bow.
Cat ears and tail are make from shaggy minky fabric (very messy to work with) and soooooo soft. I tried to find a fabric that matched the kitty paws I purchased. Kitty ears attach with snap hair clips. The tail is sewn in to the overskirt.
