Black and Pink Lolita High Waisted Skirt by Kitty-Sprinkles Black and Pink Lolita High Waisted Skirt by Kitty-Sprinkles
This is my amateur sewing skills at their best. Everything was handmade except the blouse (I used a plain white collar blouse and bumped it up). I will be wearing this on my first day of LA Anime Expo 2013 (for me it’s the 2nd day). It originally came from a sketch I had and just brought it life.
This project cost around $20-25 and approximately 3 days to put together.

There are more up close pictures of the bow and hat on my tumblr:

Skirt: This was machine sewn with straight lines. I used another puffy dress (with a petty coat underneath) to estimate how much I need to make it like that and eyeballed the waist part. From there it was the same measurements for the lace and pink stripes.

Bow: I am absolutely in love with the bow (it’s very heavy too). Machine sewn with straight lines too. This has about 4 layers for this stiff material that goes underneath to make it stand up.

Hat: This is hot glued and hand sewn. The base is made out of cardboard. Just basically covered in fabric, hot glue together, sew the ends to give it a sewn look to it, and slapped on the rest with hot glue. The only thing machine sewn is the bow.

Thank you. I worked on another skirt, but I've gotten so lazy lately and not even edited the pictures yet.
