Little Black Lolita Dress

Added Feb 3, 2011

by loiseau

Little Rock, Ark...






This project was based off the Simple Back-Shirred Lolita Dress however, i left out the shirred back and used a zipper. I also shortened the skirt a little and left the ruffles off.

This was my first project and I had to learn a lot of things myself. I wasn’t sure how to gather the skirt to make it full so I used pleats which I actually like. It’s a very simple clean dress that can be dressed up or down. I love it!!

Let me know if you’d like instructions or have any questions! Sorry for my crappy phone pictures. Will try to get better ones, just anxious to get my project on here!


Material Notes

    Lolita dresses are typically about knee length, but this is pretty cute as is :)
