Sweet Lolita

Happy May, crafters, and makers! I have an exciting and different craft to share today. I designed and made a Sweet Lolita Style dress. For those that don’t know Lolita fashion, it is a Japanese street style of dressing that has an aesthetic of cuteness. Wikipedia has a good description of this style if you would like to know more. I worked without a pattern and followed the classic Lolita style. I made some of the coordinates and purchased others.


  • Ribbon: 1-inch white/pink lace ribbon (10 yeards), 2″white chiffon ribbon with pastel rainbow edges (12 yards).
  • Fabric: pink gingham (about 6 yards-from my stash)
  • Elastic: 2 inch (3yards)
  • Thread: white sewing thread

Time to make – 20 hours

Although this was not made with the intent of displaying a “pink” craft for this month’s Colorful Options Challenge, it certainly is a craft that screams pink.

Check out this month’s challenge for more DT inspiration!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great month and happy creating!!
