If you are interested in a commission for the future, feel free to comment on this post and you'll be put in line~

Currently not taking commissions, I'm going to stick to ready made garments for a bit. Either I will sell them on etsy or the egl_comm_sales. Once I have things organized I will probably make a new public entry with all the information in regards to my sales on here, and on my sewing blog http://dixmacabre.blogspot.com/


Wish me luck! And give me some more ideas if you wanna, I'd apprieciate it!

I'll be hopefully updating this post regularly, adding links and such, so keep posted!
  • Wow, such a long list!
    Here are some metal hair combs on ebay. I hate plastic hair combs, they look so ghastly and cheap!


    • I know right! I'm in for a crazy end to the year, but I can't wait to do it all so I'll feel acomplished 8D and in the end, I'll have a pretty well-set lolita wardrobe (but for now I still have to buy blouses and bloomers, and I've already made a petti but I might buy another inexpensive one)

      yes, the first headdress I made has plastic and it looks so ugly D; I want to do tie strings on a few, but there still has to be some sort of comb there. Thanks so much for the links!
    • oh and another thing, do you think its possible to split those combs into say...about 3 pieces? They look a bit wide :/ I;m guessing some sort of metal cutting tool? II have no idea though. It should be possible?
      • You're welcome.
        I think it would be easy to cut the combs into smaller sections! Even a pair of jewellery/beading pliers would do the trick :)
  • (no subject) - mewwji
    • oh yes alot, but I have a good dtart :D and thanks! Oh yes, you'll definetly be seeing them!
  • Awesome! Yes keep us posted- I think it is very interesting to see design sketches and the way to a ready garment
  • Commission? (Also, Rose Border fabric)


    I was wondering if you were open to do a commission at this time. Thank you!

    Also, I saw on your wishlist that you wanted the IW Rococo Rose Border JSK. You might have already seen this, but the fabric for that JSK (or at least one with an identical print) is available here:
    • Re: Commission? (Also, Rose Border fabric)

      Oh I'm sorry, I'm currently not open for commissions, as of late I've been sticking to making ready made garments to sell. (Though I may decide to make a few exceptions, just not at the moment)

      The size range for my ready made garments are around brand sizing, depending ont he design. I currently don't have anything up for sale though, but I should hopefully sometime in the Fall (possibly October).

      Oh and thanks for the link! Unfortunately one can't really buy directly from the quilt gate site (they only sell to wholesalers), I'm hoping the fabric shows up on www.shabbyfabrics.com, since they sell a lot of the Mary Rose collection fabrics (and I've bought a lot from there)

      Thanks a lot for your interest though! If you want to see garments as I make them, check out my blog http://dixmacabre.blogspot.com/ When I make things for sale I post them up there too.
    • Re: Commission? (Also, Rose Border fabric)

      Oh and to add, this post is a little out of date, I should probably update the commissions section, I forgot I had wrote all of that there!

      There is a chance I could open up, just not for a bit of awhile. I'm finishing up a commission now, and I've had a couple other people ask. :)
      • Re: Commission? (Also, Rose Border fabric)

        Alright, thank you for getting back to me so quickly!

        Ah, I thought that might be the case when I couldn't find information about buying smaller amounts of the fabric. I do hope they make it available- I own the JSK, and it's just head-over-heels gorgeous in person.

        Thanks for the link! I actually decided to ask you because I'd seen what you've posted on your blog and thought that your pieces look amazing.
        • Re: Commission? (Also, Rose Border fabric)

          No problem :)

          Stalk Shabby, I certainly do, haha! I even put myself on their email mailing list, I recommend it! (By the way, for future, I take a percentage off the commission price if the buyer orders the fabric and has it sent to me, I think Shabby Fabrics will be my primary fabric provider for awhile.)

          And thank you very much, I'm glad you like what I've made <3 It always makes me happy to hear people say so :D
          • Re: Commission? (Also, Rose Border fabric)

            I actually just discovered that site yesterday, which is what made me want to commission a dress. The gorgeous prints were so inspiring, and I was all psyched to make myself something, until I remembered that I can't sew to save my life. :P The only reason I passed my required sewing class in high school was because the teacher took pity on my and re-did about half of the dress I made.
