I do have a few favorites, bloomers and jumperskirts in particular, they are quick and easy pieces I add to my wardrobe every so often. However, as I progress further I find myself challenging myself with more difficult projects.
I hope to add a black and cream version of these to my wardrobe.

The things that I love about DIY in particular is when I have extra fabric left over.
I've made a pair of matching wristcuffs for my wonderland jsk, making the ruffle with the same fabric as the striped underskirts. I plan on making a headbow with the same striped and wonderland print, possibly two different types if I have enough, and I want to make bloomers too, but I think for bloomers I'll have to get another yard.
|It's probably one of my favorite pieces.|

Bloomers can be a great addition to every wardrobe. They're fun to make and you can make them in many different prints and styles. My bumblebee ones are probably one of my favorites.
|To bad they aren't like Bumblebee from Transformers, but that would be a tad bit awkward.|
I will be posting a tutorial for bloomers and wristcuffs, this post is becoming a little too large to post one despite the simplicity.
A few DIYs projects I plan on adding to my wardrobe are a few lace connotiers, cream color wristcuffs, a few headbows (a few pink ones, a red, white, and blue one) a few bonnets, blouses, and, of course, more bloomers.
A good place to look up tutorials would be here on F Yeah Lolita. This girl has a good list going and I definitely think it's a good resource.
I also have another tutorial for an OP that I'm looking into my fabric stores to try out. You can find it here with Lolita From Scratch.
I'll probably make a list of tutorials I have used and really like soon.
I hope you've enjoyed this little episode of Lolita Blog Carnival, it has definitely given me more to write and think about. I promise a bloomer tutorial is in the works.
