Singin’ in the Rain print coming soon from Precious Clove
THIS is how you go about incorporating animal ears and tails into Lolita. This is probably the cutest cat print I’ve ever seen!
I vaguely remember seeing a ouija board lolita print one time. It wasn't any named brand but I was wondering if you remember posting it and if you could help me find it again?
If it’s the one I’m thinking of it’s this one which I really love. The dress is handmade but the fabric was made on spoonflower.
Hi! I've recently bought Surface Spell's Holy Prayer JSK, and I was wondering what's your take on it? What do you think would coordinate well with it?
I think it’s gorgeous. I really love stained glass prints. You could easily coordinate it with mostly black and use the jewel tones found in the print in accessories. Gold accessories would work nicely as well. Its very good for Gothic Lolita but you can easily incorporate Classic elements into it as well.
Fan Plus Friend has a new line and it has a Doctor Who theme! The “Time Lord” set includes an underbust JSK, highwaist skirt, blouse, tuxedo jacket, bowler hat, and TARDIS rosette. All clothing items are available in custom sizes making the line plus size friendly!
I don’t usually do updates like this when lines are released but I really love this!

It’s Meta’s Blooming Garden.
I have a question regarding how do I pull a non traditional print off. I was at Joanne's fabrics and I found a quilting cotton printed with a bunch of Marvel comics characters, and I thought it would be a good idea to make a dress out of it. The real question is, how do I pull it off without being tacky? Also this is my first time making a Lolita dress, would the snobs mock me because I did a DIY dress in a unusual print
My suggestion is to not use the print for an all-over dress. Either just use it for a skirt or if you wanted to make a dress just use the printed fabric for the skirt portion and then make the bodice with a solid color like black or navy or maybe red to tone it down like you see here. I would also recommend lining it and be sure to iron it and make it look nice because quilting fabric can look a little cheap if you’re not careful. Being comic book themed I’m assuming it’s probably busy and very colorful so while it’s okay to use, you’ll want to tone it down with elegant elements and solid colors to help keep it Lolita and as you said, avoid being tacky. Don’t get so into the theme that you forget what you’re trying to make it Lolita.
