Lolita Petticoat Tutorial

This is a Petticoat tutorial, based on a GosuRori pattern.

Because I'm sure a lot of you don't know Japanese. :3

Here is my skirt pattern, with the gathering instructions: [link]


Do it.

Make skirts poofy.

hi! I have the intention to make my own dress/skirt and petticoat, so I have search for a long time for lolita (sew) tips, but the petticoat is just a bit hard to search...I mean, I found some types and patterns of petticoats, but they are a-line pattern, and I want to find a bell shaped petticoat pattern. I want to know if this tutorial is for a bell shaped?
thx for att,

It's a great tutorial but there's something i'd like to ask you...
what is the measure you use for the waist?

(sorry for my bad english... because I think I hadn't written it well jajaja)

Haha yeah. it's not so bad. You could just layer more tulle in, at the same lines and at different lines as well. just more layers of tulle!

I love GosuRori's tutorials!
But iif you want a lot of poof, try using petticoat netting. Its different from tulle because its a lot stiffer and you dont need a lot of layers of it to give it volume

Honestly, petticoat tulle is kinda gross. It's scratchy and tough, and doesn't really stay nice. I prefer organdie pettis.

I don't even use this petticoat alone, i layer a few other ones i've got from various places. pettis are frankly a bitch to make.

I use this one just as extra fabric in between sometimes (and by this one i mean one of the 80 bagillion i've made. lol.)
