I - I'd really like some help. I've ordered my first lolita dress in years (I was a young ita before, got shut down hard) and I would really like some petti advice. Someone was talking about rectangle dress cuts or something odd like that and not being able to wear a-line pettis with them?

I have an a-line petti that needs to have one layer re-stitched, and I'm wondering if it would be the right petti for this JSK? I still need to order a blouse, shoes etc and I need to order a white petti anyway, but I don't want to fuck up my first proper coord. Any advice and tips would be helpful!

Also given that this JSK is so bottom-heavy in its print, would it be best to wear solid black tights and wine red/that gorgeous coppery gold colour shoes?

Hey anon that's a lovely choice to get back into lolita. An a line should suit fine and black tights sound like a good plan, you could possibly get a way with very simply patterned tights shoes in either colour or both would be lovely. For a blouse I think black would work and a high collar or a more ott blouse (princess sleeves) would look nice I think. I would not recommend a peter pan collar blouse. You have many options for headwear and bags. I think using the red and gold in your headpiece would tie it all together.

>> No.7976984

>>7976929

I think I'm the anon who was going on about rectangle skirts, and yes, this looks like one.

You'll get the best silhoutte if you layer an A-line over a cupcake, it's the same reason AP sews a hard tulle lining into their skirts, the cupcake shape is too.... cupcakey.

You can try it with your A-line first, and see if you're satisfied with the way it looks before buying a cupcake to layer underneath it.

>>7976976
Thank you! I fell in love with it, Phantom of the Opera was probably the first non-animated musical I ever saw, so when I discovered the print.

I was considering a sort of low-ish collar since I don't want my neck to disappear (round face), and getting a short sleeved blouse since it's summer here as well as a princess sleeved longer one for the colder days.

Is it bad practice to make your own headbows? As I don't really like the rectangular headpieces that match the JSK and I think a bonnet is far too ambitious for me.
I'd love to find similar lace and dye it.

Also, is a black wig with a black jsk generally the way to go? I'd like to go for that sort of elegant classical look overall in my wardrobe, rather than too gothic. I'm browsing taobao now for bags that can bring the colour back into the top-half of the dress. :)

>>7976984
Thanks for the advice! I need to buy a white petti anyway, as I said. I thought the cut looked more a-line, but the top of the skirt seems to be where the 'poof' comes from (that was what you were saying, wasn't it?) As I said.. I really want to do things right. I know my first co-ord won't be 'perfect' by anyone's standards, though. But I can sure as hell try!

So I'm a pretty new-ish lolita. I'm currently looking for some cute gothic headwear to kind of finish off the outfits I own. I've been sorta shopping around, but I was wondering if anyone had some good places to look that won't completely break the bank.

I'm kind of looking for alice bow type stuff since I think they're super adorable.

The main colors I own right now are black, white, and lots of wine red.

So I guess the question is where do you other ladies prefer to go shopping for headwear?

If you're looking for a good cheap starter a-line petticoat, try victoriandressgirl on ebay. I paid I think 36 dollars including shipping and it gives a fabulous amount of poof.

I wouldn't call yourself a fatty-chan. Enjoy the fashion. Be happy. That's what it's all about. When you put on your first cord you should feel fucking fabulous.

Also, if you're worried, said petticoat provides a LOT of stretch in the waist. There's a little elastic you can adjust on the inside.

I think in most situations leggings will not work out in lolita. Since a lot of shoes expose the top of your feet. It'll just look really odd to have bare skin there. The only times I think it would look fine if it's going into a boot and with an outfit where it won't make it look too busy.

I always order XL from BM because I wear my leggings hooked under my heel. I may try some of my old bodyline shoes with a pair I already own to check if I can actually pull them down enough to cover the tops of my feet when in shoes.

If this worked out, what are your thoughts on the print?

And you have the most gorgeous dresses! The petti seems to add a perfect poof to them!

>> No.7977127

>>7977118
If you can make it sit to cover the tops of them without it looking odd, I'd say it would be fine. However, I'd just be concerned that it might slip and then you'd have to keep stopping to adjust it. (That'd get really annoying fast, haha.)

I personally like the print. I think it could work out in a cord where the main color is black with little accents of wine red.

A place that might be worth checking out is www.sockdreams.com they have some loli-able otks and tights there.

I'm personally very self-conscious about my knees so I stick to otks and tights. And I kind of feel they make my legs look slimmer than knee socks.

The problem is, my warddrobe is mostly classic/gothic. I have a lot of jewel, dusty and muted tones but I know nothing about pastels.

I've already went to a meet up yesterday. I doubt i'll actually dress in lolita today since I'm going to work on homework and then help my RSO set up for an event tonight. Maybe if I have a little time between set up and the event, I could dress up casually. I've always found it strange how I want to wear lolita every weekend or every other day, but when I do dress up, I just want to get back into my PJs after a few hours (and I'm not the type of girl who wears leggings as pants).

I too am a little miss manshoulders. The best thing I've come up with is to buy blouses that don't accentuate it. Here's a list I've come up with of things that don't work out well:
Blouses with gathering at the top of the armhole seam
Peter pan collars that are wide and go out to the shoulders
Square collars and necklines that go to the shoulders (think sailor collars and nun-styled collars)
Things that HAVE worked:
Scoop necklines
High necklines and tall collars
Generally smaller collars

So basically if you buy blouses that have small collars on them you're good.

I tried both last year's (they were seperate bags last year). It's pretty much hit or miss.

The aatp bag was all blue or black, and did not come with any jsks. I got blouses, a vest, salopette and random print bonnets. One of the bonnets was a popular print and sold quickly, the other was not and took forever to sell. The vest was Lock the Pandora's memories, which was awesome. The salopette and one of the blouses was funky. The other blouse was nice but nothing great.

The btssb bag was entirely pink and nothing was shirred. What a pain. Took forever to sell off everything. One of the items was a print headbow, the print was some music notes, it was so random that I could not identify what print it was until I posted it on my fb and then it turns out someone in my comm had the dress and was looking for the headbow.

So yeah, pretty mixed bag.

Since they're doing btssb-aatp mixed bags this year I don't think they're going to color-coordinate it. It's nice that they do a seperate coat and bag set, so if you're in need of those, you could get them at a really good price.

Other than that mental trap, and the lack of space/money being spent on one print instead of several, I don't see anything wrong with it.
