I'm really new to the lolita world...
I could really use some tips on how to start up! I'm open to sewing skirts and dresses if I have help.

Overall, tips on lolita pleaseeee?

Anyway, if you ask her about something that you couldn't find a tag or info on, she will be more then happy to answer and help out. She's really nice.

The handbook that was linked (the second link) is also a great place

As long as you really read up on it, and follow a few guidelines (there really aren;t that many) then you should be fine

Here you go.

For skirts, they should be a minimum of 2.5 times your waist measurement, though I usually go for 3x. You can take a basic pattern for a dress bodice and then make a basic gathered rectangle skirt.
