ゴスロリ Sewing – Part 2

The postman brought me another Lolita sewing package! On cyber Monday I ordered a couple issues of the gosurori sewing magazine / mook.

Volume 15 has a few sweet and classic lolita dress patterns that I want to try. The best thing about volume 14 is there are several blouse patterns. I have some dusty rose corduroy that I think would work well for a dress and some fairy tail toile that would make a nice matching blouse. As usual my head is full of ideas that I don’t have nearly enough time to accomplish.

While my katakana and hiragana are in good shape, I expect I will be using Batty-chan’s sewing guide {http://www.feorag.com/gosurori/gr-patterns.pdf} to navigate some of the kanji. I own a lot of Japanese sewing books and with patience can fumble through the instructions. Their illustrations are always jam packed with great visual clues that Western patterns lack.
