New item heads up~!

Hey everyone! I'm happy to introduce a new pattern to I Do Declare! What do you think? I wanted to make something really light and easy for people to wear in summer.. . so often lolita is a real pain when it gets hot outside. It's made out of and lined with a very light cotton lawn. It may become my signature fabric this season beacause of how breezy it is!

A collar detail shot. I'm falling back in love with pintucks! And Snazzy buttons. . . and really soft grosgrain ribbon.
And here it is in action! This dress will be available in a few different prints on my etsy within a few days! It's also available for commission(though message on etsy) in the fabric of your choice! Sadly right now I can only make it in two sizes (bust: 35 waist: 28 and bust: 37 waist: 30) I'm working on drafting patterns for larger sizes though!

I hope you like it!

Lolita day at Kinokuniya~!

Hey everyone! I've got fun news for those in the NYC area!
I'll be doing a presentation about sewing (and starting a brand) for the western lolita on June 5th!

Lots of other lolitas I really admire will be giving presentations and taking questions as well:
+ Zoh of Morigan NYC whom I'm always in awe of
+Dalin of La Vida frills who has spectacular taste in movies
+ Crystal of Pretty Wonderland who is absolutely adorable
+ Victoria of Lolita charm with her perfect pink curls!

I'm super excited to be a part of this with so many people I admire!

If you're around the city that day stop by Kinokuniya on 6th ave and 41st st to say hi to us! There is also a raffle going on where you can win some sweet prizes! Including something from I Do Declare~! (i promise it won't be lame)

In other news I'll be updating the shop with new items soon~!
