I really like a dress/jsk with lots of gathering on the back. That way it can be worn by several people, different sizes, and it can account for layers under it or weight gain and loss. Fitted dresses are nice and tailored but they are less practical. I like my Lolita to be easy to wear and friendly.
Speaking of other wearing my clothes. I think I might sell these babies once they are done and once I have gone to the convention. After all, this blog is about my debt and getting out of debt by selling my designs. At PAX I might spread that word that I am going to sell them and if I get enough interest. I also want to start making OP's, JSK's, and skirts to sell. All one of a kind. I do not like making things in repeat. It's not that I think I am doing couture. I just get bored making things over and over. I like every project to be new, interesting, and fun. I think when I am excited about a piece it comes though in my work.
As a bonus here is a picture of my other kitty, Bella. She likes to "help" me make my jewelry.
