What does it mean when there's no text next to the name of an item on Innocent World's shop? For example, you'll see some items that say "FEW LEFT" or some that say "SOLD OUT," but some that have absolutely nothing - does that mean they're still available?

A lot of old moitie is small in the skirt as well as the bodice, so adding fabric to the bodice wont be enough. Unless you are skilled enough to do it well, it isnt worth it, especially with the high value of the dress.

I dont think people will come for you if you do it well, I know some tall girl changed a narrow ega skirt into a lolita skirt by adding a whole back bustle but it was well done so it worked. ]

I've been on this board for about 10 years. I'm difficult to dress because of my height, to the point other "tall" (still shorter than me) fashion posters don't know what to do, either snide comments about how I must be a man are made about my height, or I'm given snide comments about how I'm really not trying hard enough to dress myself, all while not being given help.
Legitimately, do I just give up on Japanese fashion at this point? I'm over 6 feet tall, and in my 12 years of looking into Japanese fashion, I've just looked like a mess, not due to lack of effort but because of my size.

I'm in the UK and just bought my Aurora & Ariel pettis on Taobao - they're pretty cheap so even with all the extra fees it doesn't come out to very much, and thus far I've never been charged customs on small Taobao orders (I've only been living here for a few years so this might not be 100% reliable, but in my experience small items handled by Royal Mail almost never get charged, items handled by Parcelforce are always, always charged).

But if you want a petti from someone based in the UK, I'd say watching LaceMarket is your best bet. I'm pretty sure I even saw an Aurora & Ariel petti from a UK seller recently.

I saw these cat slippers on a Weibo photo; I found a similar pair on Ebay, but it has weird numbers on the ribbon instead of text.

This dress looks a lot better in stock photos it seems, I'm looking at some worn photos from buyers and the shape seems awkward,especially the bodice.
If it's possible, I'd really recommend just buying brand first. There's a lot of nice cheap brand on mercari/fril/circlly. Brand has a reputation of being nice for a reason, and if you're new, it's not worth it to risk it on offbrand pieces.

Don't feel like you need to rush! If you can, try to take your time and find something that you think you'll really love and wear often (especially since I assume you won't be getting out much for the foreseeable future) So many newbies scramble to buy their first dress and end up quickly realising that it's not their style at all.

anon this is a retarded reason to start CCW, because this won't change how people react to you at all on a day to day basis. no one will know you have it. you would only whip it out under extremely limited circumstances. even if a person is mugging you with a gun, just handing over your shit is a better idea than starting a shootout when they're already pointing a gun at you. assholes catcalling you or touching your petti will still happen.

I don't think it's even worth it to carry while wearing lolita. no one wants to cause a scene mugging the weirdo in flashy clothing that everyone is looking at. and i don't know about you, but generally when i wear lolita i'm going to public places instead of places where i could be murdered all alone.

I can't imagine trying to make a pleated skirt with a circle skirt. It would be miserable taking a literal circle of fabric and trying to get pleats to work with it? Pleated skirts tend to be straight up rectangle, A line, or some sort of pattern with a yoke and the pleats beneath it.

what you're describing isn't what a circle skirt is. circle skirt is a term for the cut of the fabric, not the end result, all skirts form essentially a circle when sewn together. circle skirts are cut in the shape of a full circle before you even begin to sew them like pic related. most vintage (40s-60s) skirts or poodle skirts are circle skirts, but lolita skirts are generally rectangle or trapezoid. i have no idea why so many people who clearly don't wear lolita are chiming in on this shit.

> all skirts form essentially a circle when sewn together
This is completely and utterly wrong. Most lolita skirts form a cylinder when sewn together, not a circle.

Pic related is NOT made of 2 trepezoids, more like 12 or more trepezoids sewn together that forms a circle. Just check how print is straight on each piece. It’s not possible when you make it out of 2 pieces of fabric.

It's more than likely just a trapezoid with a bigger measurement difference at the bottom. If the measurement difference is larger, the pleats will flare out more at the bottom. Just so everyone knows if you make pleats in a trapezoid skirt, they will infact flare out at the bottom since you only sew them to the waistband and the rest of the shape of the pleat relies on ironing. A trapezoid skirt is similar to a circle skirt in that it has a smaller top measurement than the bottom, it's just not circular. Either way it looks nothing like >>10369437 and I think that she just is confused about how pleats work in general.

>> No.10369458

That's not what a circle skirt is this has already been explained. The hem of the skirt being circular once sewn doesn't make it a circle skirt. Your opinion doesn't change the definition of a circle skirt which is that waist and bottom being cut from the fabric in circular rather than in a straight line like in >>10369437, which is known as a 1/4th circle skirt.

A circle skirt refers to the CUT FABRIC. By your logic any skirt is a circle skirt when it's sewn together because it's a continuous line. Look at the picture and imagine both of those are half of a skirt, laid flat on a table. The circle skirt is cut with curves on it, and the trapezoid one is cut shaped like a trapezoid.

THANK YOU. I am one of the initial anons, and have just been lurking but my head hurts watching people try to explain. A trapezoid skirt CAN have a bit of a curve, but a circle skirt curve will never be less than a 45° curve, that's the difference. The Melty Ribbon Chocolate skirt is definitely a wide trapezoid or rectangle for the exact reasons you said (which I tried to explain hours ago).

A pleated rectangle skirt’s hem length can be max 3x of the waist size, so Melty Ribbon Chocolate is no way a rectangle skirt. Can be a dramatic trapezoid but a trapezoid that dramatic should definitely have a curve. Either way it’s a trapezoid very close to a circle or an actual circle.
