Rococo lolita dress by zeloco Rococo lolita dress by zeloco
A commission dress I made last year. The initial sketch of the design and the outcome

It was quite a challenge because I've never done (proper) historical stuff and I had to make the pattern and adapt it to make it easy to put on and wear.
The client intended it to be an OTT classic lolita dress, so I\'m still working on a matching bonnet and accessories.

I call this this one "Blood, sweat and mental breakdown dress" :D

ps. sorry for the weird photos/lack of setting/petticoat/etc - most of these were made after me working on the dress for two days straight and just before I ran to the post office to ship it out. ^^;
pps. sorry for the watermarks, I worked too hard on this to get it ripped off, not taking any changes.

How much would this cost to make?
Reply
:iconzeloco:
zeloco Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2013  Professional General Artist
Depending on materials. This particular one cost 300$ to make. 150$ was materials alone.

Oh wow. You would only give yourself fifty percent? Thats very generous. Would commissions happen to be open? (Although I would insist that you leave yourself at least $200 dollars for yourself. The craftmanship is amazing!!)

Any tips for a beginner sewer wanting to make this type of thing? :)
Especially how to get 'em to look profressional and seamless. Practice, and..?
Thank you! :aww:

Thank you :aww:

Umm.. don't be frightened :) The design might seem overwhelming, when you start, but if you plan out how/when you attach the parts and brake it into smaller "jobs" it's going to look a lot easier :)
Plan out how every detail is going to look. The more effort you'll look into details and choosing the right (and quality) materials, the better the final piece is going to look.
Hope this helps ^^
Good luck! :)
