I've been sewing! I found a nice material that I thought would make for a nice summer/fall JSK. It's an empire waist cut, with a detachable brown bow. I was able to use the last bit of some cream colored lace I had, which worked out nicely with this material.

I'm calling this a prototype dress, as it's my first time making one in this style. It is completely unlined with some raw edges inside the dress. It has sheering on the back to give some nice stretch.  I need to finish sewing on the rose buttons to the front, and just making touch ups here and there before I'll feel comfortable selling it. I even have enough material to make a little headdress or bow, so that'll be next :) I'll be posting this in egl-comm-sales, and/or my etsy when it's done.

My challenge was definitely the gathering of the skirt part, and attaching that to the bodice part. Next time will be even better I hope ^^

Definitely my favorite part of the dress...the 2 styles of lace, and ruffles on the front!

Hello! I'm selling quite a few lolita items for you guys. This is a pretty quick sale, since I'm leaving for a study abroad year in Japan in under 2 weeks. I wanted to clean out my closet a bit, plus have a little extra spending money in Japan :3

Note: I'm willing to accept reasonable offers, and it will make me happy if you want to bundle items together to save shipping costs ^_^

1) Bodyline Black & White Bonnet $10 (shipped) 
$8 if shipped with another item!






This bonnet is beautiful. I never wore it out, since I don't have a coordinate that goes with it. It's silky and soft, and was bought at the Bodyline store in Harajuku Japan when I went a few years ago. Please note one of the ribbon 'tails' on the farthest left rose was cut off due to damage. I have no clue how it was damaged, but when I went to look at my bonnet after a few years of it sitting on my shelf, I saw a tear :( I cut off the damaged part so it looks fine now! It's an easy fix if you MUST have it perfectly semetrical though.

Measurements:
Length: 12"
Height: 4"
Ribbon/Tie Length: ~23"




2) Swimmer Frilly Shorts $15 (shipped)





Stock Pick, including other shorts in this series:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v646/jrockerkei/clothes/kabochaminibk2.jpg

The fabric pattern on these are adorable, and I believe I got them from a seller on EGL_Comm_Sales (livejournal). They were a tad small for me unfortunately :( They would work under a skirt, or just as sleep shorts.

Measurements:
Elastic waist: Max (fully stretched) 17" 
Top to bottom: 8"
Leg hole width: Max (fully stretched) 12"




3) Bodyline Fairy Tale Skirt, White $32 (shipped)
Love the print on this, but it was a bit smaller than what I had hoped. Comes with detachable fabric ties that can be tied to make a bow :D There is a section of elastic on the back, but the front is flat.



I tried to lighten the picture a bit to match the 'pure whiteness' of the actual skirt. sorry for suckiness.


detail of how skirt zips up and fastens. Very well made.

Bodyline's Stock Picture: http://www.bodyline.co.jp/bodyline/photos/l227-2.jpg

Measurements:
Waist: Max (fully stretched) - 19", Min (not stretched)- 12" 
Length (top to bottom of lace):  21"
Ribbon Tie: 31"





4) White Bodyline Cutsew/Top $15 (shipped)

I got this shirt on egl_comm sales (livejournal) a few years back. I never really got around to wearing it. It's very cute though with the ruffles and lace. It's a stretchy shirt, except for the ends of the sleeves.





Measurements:
Height (top to bottom): ~20"
End of Sleeve Width: 5 1/2"
Waist/Torso Width: ~14" (very stretchy)
Shoulder to shoulder: ~19" (stretchy)
Sleeve seam to sleeve seam: 13" (stretchy)




5) Off-White Non-brand Cardigan $11 (shipped)





The tag was cut off of this cardigan, so I have no clue who made it. I believe it's vintage, as it was given to me by my mother (I never wore it though). This would be nice for more casual looks, or it could be revamped by a crafty loli (sew on bows, pearls, lace accents, etc) No holes, or tears! Looks great, and it STRETCHES! It fits nicely around the waist line and has pearly buttons.

I noticed a small brown  'dot' on the upper right hand corner of the cardigan, but it could probably be bleached or washed out. Can easily be covered by a small brooch (as in the pic)

Measurements:
Height: 21" (stretchy)
Shoulder Width: 18" (stretchy)




6) Crowns & Pearls Stretchy Bracelet $8 (shipped)
$6 if bought with another item!



This chunky bracelet is stretchy, has big pearls on it, and the charms are really nice as well. It's super pretty, but I only ended up wearing it a few times. It needs to be seen!!!! I hope someone out there will wear this often :3 If you wanted, you could deconstruct it and use the charms for other jewelry.



7) Assortment of Jewelry and Goodies!
Most of these are just 'best offer', but some items are a bit more expensive (see list below). Feel free to group and make offers as you wish! These are small enough to include with a larger item to save on shipping :)
