Sweet lolita dress from 1960 Simplicity

I’ve been very eager to write this post! This costume took about a month of planning and a week of sewing. However, the dress itself took 2 1/2 days to complete.

As mentioned in my previous post on my blog, I also made another dress for my friend during the time frame as mine. It got a bit hectic and stressful, there were a couples nights around 1 in the morning when I questioned myself “Am I actually going to finish everything on time?” Well, I made it!!! I will be posting about the dresses separately. But you will get a bit of a preview of what the other dress looks like!

The pattern I used was Simplicity’s 3828 from 1960 and the pop tart fabric is by Benartex 100% cotton. I also used vintage lace from my stash.

This is the outcome.

For more pictures and info on the rest of my costume, you can check that here.

  • Now that is so adorable, and the lace just makes the outfit that much more girly. Love the fabric choice and how you accessorized it. Great job!

  • Did you put any type of stiffener in the hem or was it just a windy day?

  • Cute dress, but now I have the munchies!
