I really like that skirt. I want one like it in a longer length. (That noise of grinding teeth you may be hearing will be coming from the Infamous BlueJay, who DESPISES distressed and unfinshed edges on garments.)

 azybats said: What sort of patterns do you use to make your skirts? They look so lovely over petticoats.

I use this skirt tutorial! I haven’t yet made the actual double-layered bustle skirt that the tutorial is for (because I’m lazy/always short on time for sewing), but I do use the basic skirt pattern from it.

The Skirt Tigris, from Somnia Romantica on Etsy. Classic goth skirt, anyone? So lush and pretty!

And as an aside

If any of you folks have old t-shirts of Gothy Interest that you don’t want any more, feel free to send them to the Gothic Charm School P.O. Box. :D

(Why yes, I love turning them into skirt appliques, because I am ridiculous and easily amused.)

Ha!

One of the benefits of being a (slightly scatterbrained) packrat? Sometimes you already have the supplies for a project, you just need to unearth them! I knew I had some gothy-goth t-shirts that would be perfect for skirt appliques. (They were going to be given scooped necklines and lace trim, but since I never got around to that part, skirt appliques!)

Answering some outfit questions

catgirlxlrg replied to your photo: Goth at the Office: Dracula skirt.

Wear on Earth do you shop?! Everything you wear is awesome!

Aww, thank you! I do a lot of shopping at thrift stores, Etsy, eBay, and Retroscope Fashions (for basic skirts to alter). But I’ve assembled my wardrobe over years and years; this is my hobby, and a relaxing evening for me is watching a movie while I tailor or alter my latest shopping find.

flippin’ LOVE this outfit!!!!! That Dracula skirt is amazing, may I ask where you got it?

Thank you! The skirt is one of Retroscope Fashion’s Gothic Lolita Corset skirts, with a center applique made from this t-shirt I found on Etsy.  I’m currently (not-so) idly looking for a good Vampire Lestat-themed t-shirt for another skirt project. (I’d love to find a shirt that has the fictitious Lestat album cover from the Queen of the Damned movie, but I don’t know if they exist.)

Ooooh, I should look for a good Beetlejuice t-shirt, too. Eventually.

Isn’t this pretty? I would wear it with a black frock coat of some sort. Gorgeous, gorgeous lace.

The skirt. I wants it. The whole outfit is lovely, but the skirt with framed images of creepy dolls? I think I need something like that for this year’s SteamCon, oh yes.

Gorgeous skirts from Atelier Boz. I *should* spend today writing, but now I want to make some new skirts. Via calantheandthenightingale

The Raven Skirt, by Morrigan NYC. It is even more stunning in person. (I have it in the black x silver colorway, and I LOVE it.)

Thing One: I really want a skirt similar to this. Preferably screenprinted with text from Dracula, in a fancy font.
Thing Two: Waitaminute, I don’t have that edition of Dracula! Time to track it down.

Pretty girl with good taste in clothing and literature. Look at that print!

Make 1872 or 1887 knee-length, and you have my preferred wardrobe style.
