Sweet lolita dress from 1960 Simplicity

June 8, 2014

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.

  1. 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!
