Blouses like the ones my models are wearing here will be for sale at teh etsy shop shortly!
As will tailcoats like the one in the second picture.

These two are a very soft cotton velvet. And the second picture is another veiw of the same blouse style.

The lovely Victoria from Lolita Charm in pink! And me. . . spazzing out. But at least you can see the Heraldry skirt on a person now!

The Heraldry Skirt

I finished the sample skirt yesterday!

I really couldn't be happier with it! (except that I need grey thread instead of black XD)

I made the waistband a little wider and reinforced it with a double layer of interfacing so it's won't do that annoying fold over thing that most lolita skirt seem to do. It has an invisible side zip and it's lined. It's also very full, the hem circumfrnence is over 9 feet!

Here are a few more detailed shots of the skirt and the print so you can get a good look at it!

Close up of the print and the lace.

Come see me at NYAF~! I'll be in the artists alley every day! And come see the Neo-victorian fashion show on Sunday!

haha Same title as last time.

Anyway, my fabric came! I wanted to hold off posting about this until I took a decent picture of it, but I've decided to just go ahead!
I had four yards of my custom heraldry print fabric made and I couldn't be happier! It's printed on 100% organic cotton sateen so it's just the right weight for a lolita skirt. The details in the design came out so wonderfully but next time I think i may have it printed just a tad larger so it's easier to see.

I've started making a sample skirt, so if all goes well you'll see not only pictures of the fabric tomorrow but pictures of the first skirt~!

In other news anyone in the NYC area please come see me at New York Anime Festival! I'll have a table in the artists alley where you'll be able to see the first Heraldry skirt and pre-order one of your own! I'll be doing custom sizes to start with though because of the way it's printed I'll only be able to make skirts with waist sizes up to 30" and 22" long.

Live journal feed~!

Thanks to the lovely Martha for setting up a Livejournal feed for me! Now you won't even have to visit the site to stay updated with I do Declare!



So I've been working on a new print to debut I do Declare with at New York Anime Fesival. about a week and a half ago I ordered a test swatch from Spoonflower. I got my swatch from Spoonflower in the mail today! I have to say I'm really quite pleased with the result. Although the black ground of the design prints as a dark charcoal gray I really quite like it that way! It softens the print little I think. The fabric quality is very nice. the cotton sateen suits the print nicely and it's not to heavy a weight. The details in the design come out very sharply in the print.

Here's a picture~! (sorry I didn't iron it)

What do you think?
