Entry 4: A Day in the Life of a Lolita Designer

So many things came this past week! :D

^The underlining fabric for the print - not the lining, and the not the print fabric, but the layer of cotton/poly that goes in between to give the garment stability.

^Lots of silver notions: Rectangle adjusters/slider thingies - these are used in the adjustable straps in both types of JSKs; ribbon crimpies - (I don't know why I find these so cute, but they are) these are of course used for the ends of the waist ties; lastly, the silver buttons used throughout the series. (I believe I also got a hella ton of headbands in this week as well, but it slipped my mind to get a picture.)

And other boring sewing notions like a butt-ton of zippers and thread that I didn't take a picture of.

And the highlight of this week is: both the tights and print fabric is on it's way! - they both shipped out on Thursday, so I should have them early this week! So pumped to get started on this mountain of orders <3 (Even though it's a ton of nightmarish, sleepless work, it feels awesome to be able to ship things out like every single day and feel like a legitimate brand or that people like me/my work or something.)

As for what I actually did this week..
I think I'm finally at last finished with ordering allllll the materials needed for this series. The last thing I kept putting off was ordering more beads/jewelry supplies. Only because it's soo tedious to do go through these poorly designed jewelry websites and find what I need -_-

I think I mentioned in a previous post about how I usually plan things out well in advance. I pretty much have all of next year mapped out (woops) now. I made a few changes (which means nothing to anyone but me, because you don't even know what I'm talking about), and re-thought-out/re-designed what I'll be putting out next. Like early Octoberish, maybe? So I accidentally ended up spending most of Wednesday sketching and shopping around for lace/fabrics and... I'm so pumped, I wish I could tell you everything!

Also, Sunday was my birthday, so ice cream cake happened. I'm basically a recluse, so no parties/gatherings of humans ever really takes place, and I'm okay with this. The highlight of my day was getting my septum pierced, but I won't post it here because that's just.. I don't know, obnoxious and irrelevant?

Welcome to my life.
