Humbug Dress by LotD Humbug Dress by LotD
Humbug dress, so called because I made it to wear during the day on halloween as I gave out little stripy bags of humbugs (and other sweets when I ran out of humbugs)

I am particularly proud of this as I went all out to try and give it as much of a professional appearance as possible. The material is printed polycotton, fully lined with black ric rak and venise lace trim. It was intended to be worn over a black blouse but when I got the chance to take some good photos it was a very hot day indeed.

The only bugbear is the slight crease that forms on the chest, in hindsight I should have fitted that better.

Pattern: Me
Bought items: Socks, Gloves, Shoes, Hair

Why thank you. A humbug is a type of mint flavour sweet, they are typically covered in black and white stripes

LOVE this! I'm forever on the hunt for stripey-loli goodness, and you hit the nail on the head here.

I have to know, do you take commissions?

Yay. Me too. I only have two stripy loli outfits at the moment but hope to increase :)

I do take commissions, although only skirts internationally as I could not do a full fitting. What are you after? Send me a note with the full details if you like
