Second Rule, Always Wear Your Petticoat
When I see a girl who is dressed to the nines in Lolita and then she has a deflated and sad looking skirt because she didn't wear a petticoat it always makes me cry a little on the inside. With a lot of Lolita dresses, JSK's, and skirts there is a bit of detail and how are we to see it unless you display it. These pieces are made to have a petticoat under them. Without a petticoat I feel dumpy and frumpy. The skirt looks messy and then BOOM, you put on a petticoat and it is beautiful.
My current petticoat that I made is getting a little sad so I am going to have to upgrade and make a new and better one. This next one that I make will have a little more puff than my current one. My current petti has a sufficient amount of puff but I would like more. I won't be knocking things off of table with it but it will be a little fuller.
Again, these are just my rules that I abide by. I am not telling everyone to do what I do by any means. These are just my thoughts. What are yours on petticoats?
