When you try to link to fan plus friend, the link always turns into a lumberjacked link. Please fix the link by putting a space between fan and plus, that way we can see what you're talking about.

My first attempt at a headdress used bad quality lace, so I started again and decided to make a bow instead anyway. Would this be considered lolita? I was going for amaloli.

(Apologies for the terrible photo, it was the only camera at hand and my house has pathetic lighting)

http://www.cosplay.com/photo/2077820/

It's hard to tell from the blurriness (>_<), but it's a fairly bold cream cotton print with cute red strawberries (I was lucky enough to find a large section of it in the fabric box at the local shop, for 80p! Also, some strawberry-shaped buttons I could use for a blouse). At each end are two thin ribbons, one red and one cream, to tie it with, and there's a thick red ribbon through the middle of the smaller bow. I'm pretty sure the lace is cotton.

If the way the ribbon attaches to the larger bow is a little odd, that's because when I took the photo, I had accidentally attached the back of the big bow to the back of the little bow, so that some odd stitching was shown. I fixed it after the photos.

If it's not considered lolita, how could I improve this?

You can never go wrong with blouses. I just did an search using "blouse" as keyword on Walmart and found this, which is pretty cute. This is also probably better than the purple shirt. You generally can't go wrong with blouses when you want to put together a lolita outfit.

Its cute, but head bows are usually attached to a headband (example: http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y21...43c8c1cacb.jpg ) either in the center like the example, or off to the side. By having the ribbons attached on either side of the bow, you would be forcing it to conform to the shape of your head, rather than simply letting it sit, like in this good example: http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y21...eet_lolita.jpg

Know what I mean? ^_^

Yea, I've also made a bow at first using ribbons to tie it on my head, but it was -really- difficult for the bow to stay on my head. I ended up taking out the ribbon and fitting the bow through a headband and it works -much- better. Headbands hurt my head, though ;-;

Besides that, the bow itself looks nice

Is this lolita? I've never made lolita myself before, and I want to do it right. I'd be making this in a light green and white, with darker green ribbons and details. I would probably use a different headdress, though.

Ignore the crappy "I don't feel like drawing more detailed lace" lace.

I'm realizing now I didn't have an actual theme in mind... Does this particularly fit under any specific cateogry? (minus the crown thing)

I have a question.

I recently found a denim skirt at the thrift store. It's a knee-length dark denim skirt, a-line, and is sort of corsetty at the top. (Not sure how to explain it.)

Now, I know it doesn't sound lolita at all, but here's the thing: It has these large ornate crowns sewn onto it. (They're white. Like the fancy ones I've seen on Lolita clothes)

Would the skirt work with proper lolita attire? It's a very dark denim, so you'd have to really look to tell it was denim.

I think it looks fine, though it might be a little complicated for your first dress, unless you've made clothing before. I would have to see it, but it might be classic lolita. I don't see bustle fronts very often, though I know it's been done. Just make sure you use high quality materials and what not, check out the quick lolita guide sticky for some information.

Looks like a nice design! Personally, I don't see why not, but others might give you a better answer.

@Haru_Sohma_Luvr: decorations alone do not make something lolita. Simply because it has a crown decoration on it doesn't mean it's lolita. It has to follow other guidelines. Can you fit a petticoat under it? Is it poofy and bell shaped? If it doesn't even have the shape, it's not lolita. It's a kick-ass skirt, but not lolita.

I was trying to explan that it did have all that stuff. I've worn my petti under it, and it's bell shaped. The thing I was worried about was the denim.

Hmm post pics? XD Then again, denim isn't exactly lolita material...better let someone else take the call then.

Thanks for the input! I've sewed before, and I know how to do everything on this dress... Minus the bustle front, but I think it looks fairly straightforward. 8D;;; I like this dress idea because I wouldn't need to learn how to do sleeves without a pattern. >< *hates sleeves*

Anyways, thanks a bunch!!

ok the blouse is a bit baggy and probably not loli but this is the only thing I've got in my closet that is closely related to loli. I have never worn loli before and only bought the skirt, petticoat and headband from kitsune for $30 (it was a mystery outfit bag sale) and ended up with an incomplete outfit (she says she doesn't make blouses). So, this skirt is just so pretty and I really want to show it to my friend kitsune that I love it, I would like it if someone could tell me if this would be a passable loli? omit the wig since I have boy looking hair and this is the only wig I have that relates to the attire.

Thanks!
