Hello, I'm new to Lolita fashion and very new to sewing anything. I really want to make a Alice bow for a dress I bought. But I'm stuck trying to find matching lace.



I feel like I've looked everywhere possible for this lace and can't find it. I really want this style because its so simple and versatile.

Can anyone help me find it? I'd even pay someone to make it custom if there's anyone who can make something like this.

Thank you!

I can tell the sewn out scalloped part of it on the free edge of it, was embroidered onto the pre-existing net, with probably Rayon and not cotton thread, (because of the way in your larger photo the rayon is just reflecting the light there, in a way cotton would not ever do) and it was probably just machine embroidered onto some existing netting if that helps at all. Unless someone actually embroidered that all by hand satin stitch instead, but to know that for sure, you would have to really look at the back side of that lace.

I'm guessing that it was all machine embroidered, just because if someone took all the time to hand embroider that instead, then they probably would have also taken the time to trim the bottom edge of it a bit more careful too, but you never know.

If you want to just make some for yourself, (and not all by hand) you could do that with any sewing machine that had some satin stitch scallop kinds of stitches built into it, pretty easy, and would not even need any kind of computerized hoop embroidery machine to do that either. Actually could do that on even a treadle straight stitch kind of machine too, but lot more work that way.

But if you got some built in scallops in a sewing machine you like, you could just go to the fabric store, buy some netting, stick it down onto some of today's kind of clear wash away stabilizer that has pre-made sticky stuff on the top of it, and over sew it with some machine made scallops in your sewing machine, and then use some small pointed sissor or even thread clippers to just clip way the left over netting sticking out from the bottom of the scallops.

I have made a bunch of machine made lace, much even like that kind sometimes, and that works pretty good. Most of the time I use more a computerized hoop embroidery though, but you would not have to at all.

What is Lolita fashion? I have a feeling I know but haven't seen the term used in this way. Thanks.
