Gothic Lolita: I Make Dresses!

September 11, 2009

It’s a lot of fun, making doll dresses for the teenagers of my acquaintance–and since similar dresses are currently running $300 a pop, mine are a great deal.  Next on the list:  triple-tier crinoline petticoats all round.

    These are absolutely gorgeous! Works of art. Where do you find the time? Sorry to hear about the flu at your home. So far we have skated through, but only because we bath in Purell.

    Those are lovely!

    I think my generation of teenagers (1992-99) must have been highly unrewarding for parents who liked to dressmake. Jeans, what my mother used to call “navvy’s boots” and a big shirt, and we were set. I did have a floppy hat which my mother’s friend borrowed to copy for all her nieces, though.

    Hope everyone is beginning to feel better. I have time to catch up with my blogreading because I’m home from work ill myself – not swine flu, I don’t think.
