Calling All Crafty Lolitas: Huge Tutorial List!


I recently compiled a particularly huge list of tutorials and posted them on one of my blog's permanent pages (Have you ever noticed them? They are over to the left under "About"!). The tutorials range from sewing projects, to crafting your own accessories, to making fancy things to decorate your Lolita life with. They also range in difficulty from absolute beginner to intermediate, so with a little practice they're all relatively easy to master. You can pretty much put together a whole Lolita wardrobe with the tutorials listed here!

Of course, I'm going to be adding more to this list as I find it, so if you happen to have a tutorial you have made, or know of a good one, I would be very interested in knowing about it so that I could possibly add it! I won't be adding every single tutorial I come across (I'm not looking to be the new Google!) just ones that are strictly Lolita related and have clear and easy to follow instructions.

How much of your wardrobe have you made yourself? I have to say that, sadly, very little of mine is made by me! I'm not very handy with a sewing machine, so besides my bonnets and a few pieces of jewelry, my wardrobe is either bought from a shop, or made by people much much more skilled than I am. Gathering up all of these tutorials has really inspired me to try my hand at sewing once again though, especially after reading through this tutorial on how to make a Lolita dress! Or maybe I'll try my hand at making resin jewelry?

  2. I've made all of my Lolita wardrobe (minus socks and shoes of course ^^) and I'm always trying new crafty stuff and posting tutorials. I'm never sure how easy they are to follow, or even how Lolita, but you might find something worth putting on your list.
