I really like your Blondie Lockes cosplay(!!!!), and I was thinking of getting the fabric from Spoonflower and trying it out. Do you have any tips or patterns that you used when creating the outfit? Did you make it one piece? Or two?

Thank you so so much!! That is very nice of you to say!! I decided to make the outfit two pieces, I just safety pin the blouse to the skirt to make it better resemble the doll. :) The skirt was made from a basic cupcake style lolita skirt.

You basically split the fabric down the center, cut two inches on both sides (along the yellow) to make the waistband. For the front waistband piece, fold one section over, iron and install stiff interfacing, take your natural waist measurement and divide by two, and cut that piece down to that number. For the back waistband piece, fold it over and and iron. Next take the two remaining skirt pieces, and hem the bottoms. Gather the front portion down to the length of the front waistband. Sew the two front parts together. Next, sew the back waistband portion to the skirt portion. Then, take some 3/4” wide elastic measured to approximately 3/4 of the length of the front waistband and install it in the back waistband portion. You can then stretch the elastic and stay stitch it in place if you wish. Finally, sew the front and back sections together and you are done with the skirt!

As for the blouse, I made that pattern myself, but you can find simple blouse patterns from Butterick or Simplicity. For the bib, I chose to do pintucks for the texture, they can be a pain based on your sewing experience, so you can choose whether or not you want to do that. :) I “printed” my own fabric for the blouse by tea-staining white fabric, and then stamping with fabric paint for an “heirloom” look (I didn’t want the keys to be perfect). 

I hope this answers your questions, if my directions aren’t clear enough, a search for “elastic waist lolita skirt tutorial” will give you plenty of different tutorials to make it. My description above will make a skirt from one yard of fabric for (natural) waists up to 36 inches. 

Thanks for asking!! :D If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to ask!!

It’s also important to note that a “cupcake” skirt hem should be x3 your waist circumference for maximum floof and no less than x2 (that’s a bit closer to a-line skirt). If I were to make this skirt with my rather plus waistline of 54”, the skirts hem would have to be at minimum 108”. Given that each yard yields 72” worth of skirt because you cut it in half, I would require 1.5 yards (but be better off getting 2 yards for a fuller skirt). I would also have twice as many bears, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing ^-^

It’s 8 am and I haven’t slept yet, so feel free to double check the math €¤€ rayedelsol

Thank you for the extra input!! I have about a 34 inch waist so I did cut the multiplication to x2 to make it only require one yard (cosplaying on a budget will make you do it lol) but definitely x3 would make a floofier, fuller skirt!! :D I do x3 when I make them from less expensive fabrics. :)
