A Bodyline Review

My Boxing Day Lolita Finds

I'm not much of a Lolita girl and I'm referring to any substyle of Lolita (although I'm taken by Black Forest Mori but I don't connect that to Lolita at all). It's just one of those things that I feel costs too much and takes too much of my time to get into. I also feel I'm a little old for it - I have a particular disliking for sweet Loli and bonnets. I'm the kind of person who just wants to throw on some clothes and get out the door without having to worry about the proper petticoat, or doing my hair and make up so that I look like a living doll. It's just too high maintenance for me. With that being said, you're probably wondering why I like Lolita at all, the truth is is that I like aspects of Lolita. I might like a dress here and there, or a top, but I wouldn't style it like a Lolita girl, instead I'd just wear select pieces matched with other parts of my wardrobe. This is how I ended up with my recent purchase...

McCall's 6325 - Space Harrier Bustier

My Space Harrier Inspired Cropped Bustier

I've sewn something! What a great way to kick off the new year. :) As unconventional as this may sound, I'm going to break up this review into two posts. Why? Because I'm actually sewing the same bustier in a different material right now, and since they'll be made of different fabrics I'd like to compare and contrast my results. I'm going to complete this review in my standard format, discussing the pattern, my problems sewing it and the conclusion. In the second installation of this review I'll go over the previous complaints to see if there have been any improvements and if there are any new observations worth noting.
