Due to some unusual circumstances, I'm currently living in a partially-renovated house with my dad and his fiancé.

His fiancé is a very sweet lady who is very thrifty. She makes all her own clothes and and will usually find a practical use for something, rather than throw it out (i.e recycling old bottles and jars to pot plants).

I had a Baby The Stars Shine Bright Strawberry and Cherry Ruffle jumperskirt that I didn't wear anymore, so I was planning to sell it. From memory, it cost about $400.

I put it out in the main room next to a pile of clothes I planned to donate to Good Sammies, so I'd remember to take photos of it for the sale. I then went away for a week to visit my grandparents

When I came back, I noticed the pile of clothes had disappeared. Cool, my dad and/or his fiancé had donated them for me. But wait... Where was the jumperskirt?

It was then that I saw the sight portrayed in the uploaded. My dress had been cut up to to make an ironing board cover and a tablecloth. I don't know where the rest of the material is.

It appeared that my dad's fiancé had assumed the jumperskirt was part of the donation pile, and thought there was no harm in 'recycling' it for her own uses. In her efforts to pretty up the concrete-y wasteland of a house, she had unknowingly destroyed an expensive brand dress.

Literally the only thing I could do in that moment was stare blankly. I can't even be mad at her, she had no idea.

So now I have a BTSSB ironing board and table cloth.

Be comforted in the fact that there is no way it was worth $400 on today's sales market.

.... I have no words. That's awful, hillarious, and just wow at the same time.

My dad once cut up a cosplay I had left sitting in the sewing machine overnight with pins still in it somehow thinking it was scrap fabric and he needed it for some oddball project (hard to find fabric too). But that doesn't even add up to this.

This is the worst but desu it's kind of your fault OP. You knowingly left the jsk in a public area right next to the stuff you were going to donate. It's not like it was just hanging in your closet, or in your room. I feel so bad for the jsk though..

Miscommunication can happen both ways, OP failed to communicate clearly that her dress was not meant for donation or recycling and the fiancee lady failed to make a final confirmation. Stop being mad and implying that the OP should be negative about it when it's not even your business.
>>
>>9053136
You must be a peach to be friends with. If it's real or not I don't care. But Jesus you have serious issues if you think a small claims court will give two fucks for a deprecated in value dress. I'm sure OP was mad about it. But it seems that OP has a lot more control over their anger then you do. You are one step away from a "I want to speak to your manager" haircut.
>>
>>9052944
To be fair it is kinda your fault for leaving in in a pile of donate clothes and somewhere in the open where she could see it. At least she has good taste in fabric prints. But it is your fault for leaving for days with it out in the open with things you intended to get rid of. I'm still baffled that there was that much fabric in a single item.

>>
Well obviously there was at least a little communication about the clothing in that area going to the goodwill. Or else why would they even think that at all? That's not a conclusion that people just jump to, so OP must have said SOMETHING about donating the clothes that she placed in that area. If she put her dress right next to the pile, sure she didn't give permission to her dad's fiance to touch it, but she sure gave the impression that she didn't want the clothes that were there. It's at least partly OP's fault.
>>
>>9052944
On the one hand jesus fucking christ. On the other hand, that's a pretty nice ironing board.
>>
>>9053202
Have you ever ironed one of your dresses? S m h all these comments like yours make me sad picturing all the sad, wrinkly dresses. I was just ironing a narrow a-line IW dress today and it took me about six turns about the board to cover the full area of just the skirt. I would hate to know how many ironing board covers you could get out of some of my tiered dresses, they're such a bitch to iron

Saved for posterity.
Carefully hand stitched like OP's new ironing board.

Sorry OP, but you're a bit daft to put clothes you want to keep next to clothes you want to donate and then bugger off for a week. At least you have the good grace to not go bananas though.
>>
>>9053276
I iron and steam my stuff. I just never though you could cover a 5 foot ironing board and a 5 foot table with it before. At least not without having to stitch parts together to get a continuous piece. All these pictures OP has posted looks like it's all one continuous piece of fabric as if it was just taken off a bolt and made into something new. I know you can get enough fabric from a skirt to make a pillow case. I have done that once with a very damaged skirt off of lace market once. But a table runner AND and ironing board cover with one dress? I must say that's a feat in itself.
>>
>>9053278
Some of my lines got fucked up, have a freshly painted one.
>>
>>9053293

Both pieces aren't very wide, though. Plus you don't actually cover the underside of the ironing board, you just need enough for the top and a bit to go over the sides.

The ironing board also looks more like 1.5m and the table runner like 1m to me instead of a full 10 feet as well.
>>
Holy hell, what a bitch.
Lolita dresses look very expensive and detailed. Even if she thought it MIGHT get donated, how would you get the idea to cut up a perfectly cute dress??
I mean, unless it had dirt stains all over it, why not donate a really pretty dress?? Cutting something up is reserved for clothing that is beyond help.

And if I were to see a pretty dress in a donation pile, and wasn't 200% sure it's supposed to be donated I wouldn't touch it. It's not like it would've hurt the stupid mom to lay it aside and reassure it's purpose later.

Anon, did you never talk about your lolita clothing to your family? Mine knows next to nothing about lolita, but sure as hell do they know how expensive and important my dresses are.

Thrifty moms are the worst, I always hear stories about them destroying things that were never meant to be recycled. And just look at that embarrassing rubbish flower pot.

I have to admit, I'm slightly in awe of the woman who thought this dress was so worthlessly destined for donation, and yet she liked it enough to carefully, painstakingly seam rip 2+ m worth of lace from the bottom of the skirt, and then carefully, painstakingly resew it onto the table runner.

Such an expensive table cloth with a paper cup on it.
>>
Is this fabric even suitable/strong enough to be under heat? I know with ironing stuff, the other fabric will be the barrier but still, doesn't seem durable. I would never touch a dress fabric and think it'll be perfect for an ironing board...
>>
>>9053456

lolno. The print is from 2010/2011, in that era the dresses were mostly mid-weight 100% cotton twill. You actually *have* to iron the dress on pretty high heat just to get the wrinkles out. Trust me, it's plenty durable for high heat.

AP was annoying in those days, the cotton twill requires high heat tthat would melt the tulle lace, so you had to be super extra careful when ironing AP -- high heat for the cotton twill without touching any of the tulle lace. The polyester stuff that burando favours these days really only got popular the last couple of years or so.
>>
>>9053418
It's probably ceramic. I've got a couple of coffee cups that same size and shape, and they don't have handles.

Given that the going rate for such a dress would be like $120, i think $60 for each item is a pretty good value for the novelty

Unfortunate story OP but perhaps with a silver lining-I'd buy the hell out of brand homewares, maybe you should get her onto some of the damaged brand that LM sells and set her up with an etsy.

Answers to some questions:
- I ain't that mad nor would I expect her to pay me back, she's the nicest woman ever and would have meant well. I was planning to sell it anyway so it's only a monetary loss for me
- oh yes it absolutely was around $400ish for me, maybe $350. Consider customs and taxes.
- fiancé has no idea what Lolita is and wouldn't know its value,
- it's totally my responsibility that it happened
- it's a standard-sized ironing board
- so much delicious popcorn in this thread. I proud of opening the floodgates of cgl feelz.

I'm glad that you're chill, OP, to the fiancée. It sounds like it was just an unfortunate miscommunication in both directions. Maybe you can tell her gently in the future to steer clear of ruffled dresses, because they have resale value (and of course, be careful where you put stuff you're planning to sell instead of donate; it seems she probably just looked at the dress and thought it was up for donating or tossing). That $100 ironing board is really cute!

>>
>>9053999
So? You can cut up a dress, especially a dress destined you think is destined for the trash. You're acting as though brand is made out of some blessed fabric and has some kind of holy light that normalfags can see.
>>
>>9054024
No I'm acting like a well mannered human who can clearly see that most people posting here don't know what ownership means.

It seriously doesn't matter that it was being donated, if that really is the case (I'm pretty skeptical of threads on 4chan), it was still hers and she didn't get a choice in what happened to her belonging.
>>
>>9054030
From my point of view, if you see something in the trash pile, it doesn't have an owner anymore. Anon is partially at fault for putting it near the trash pile. A well mannered human would be able to see that both parties made innocent mistakes, and that everything else considered, this incident is not worth crying over too much. Obviously OP thinks that the fiancee is a nice lady and that there was no malicious intentions, therefore there is no reason to take her to court. At most, she should have a talk with the fiancee about lolita and its secondhand value as a non cut-up dress.
>>
>>9054037
I agree with most of what you said and what other people in the thread said about miscommunication. Both sides failed on that part.
But it wasn't a trash pile - it was a donation pile. Therefor it's not really up for grabs until it reaches a goodwill or whatever. Also we don't even know what happened to the other clothes? Did they even get donated or did little miss fiance hoard them for crafting somewhere?

Crafty people often turn out to be disgusting hoarders in my experience. They take things they find and "save" it for a project.

Anyway, it's annoying the amount of people there are that think it's just fine to take something that isn't yours, because it was just laying there so it's up for grabs and then just do whatever you want with it.

Is everyone here a fucking scavenger that collects shit they find laying around and then tout themselves as being mature?

Not to mention the amount of people who just bought this shit hook, line and sinker. I take it you guys started browsing this board first and you're not aware that this entire site is full of lies? Do you believe everything you read on the interwebs?
>>
>>9054037
Donation is not trash. You get write off donations in your taxes. You can't write off dumping trash. Just because someone is donating something, doesn't mean they are donating it to you.

Trash probably wasn't the right word, maybe a 'things that are no longer needed' pile. And at that point, I don't see a difference in giving them to a family member or giving them to a charity organization. It's best to ask before using the discarded items, but when there is no one there and the person owning the items is okay with you donating the items while they're away (meaning they expressly told you 'I don't need these items anymore, please give them away' at some point), then I don't see a logical failing in taking a few pieces for your own purposes.

>>9054078
>but when there is no one there
It's 2016. She couldn't pick up a phone? She couldn't ask her fiance to ask the owner of the items if it was okay??
That seems entitled and insensitive to me.
>>
>>9054078
I think the better term is give away. Like when you're sorting through stuff you have a keep, give away/donate, and toss/trash pile.
>>
>>9054083
She should have, but it probably seemed like a lot of hassle and ultimately not worth bothering OP over. I wouldn't want someone to call me to ask if they can eat yesterday's leftovers, that kind of thing. Maybe it's a cultural thing too? I was raised in an environment where family was important and sharing was everything.
>>
>>9054037
I think the point other anons are saying is that the clothes werent hers anyway. To pick something up and use it thats not yours and not even so much as ask the person who owns the stuff is quite rude. Being family doesnt excuse rudeness or the use of another persons stuff without permission. Yes anon should have been more careful, but anon would/should only have to cover her bases because people,usually friends or family, use stuff without that persons permission. I think its not someones duty to hold peoples hands so they dont do something impulsive. This could have been avoided if the woman had just asked a simple question or two. Anon really shouldnt have had to cover her bases if the woman was more aware of boundaries instead of doing a simple quite selfish action.
Me personally id be pissed and demand a reasonable price from the woman to teach her its not ok and just because it happens to family doesnt mean you let it slide but ive also had to fight and earn everything i had and my mom would also try and give away what i had (weather i bought it myself with my own money i got at a job or not) to other kids in the neighborhood to gain favor in her social group of moms of those kids so im pretty biased. Im salty about that last part but overall i think anon is a better well balanced person than i am and im sorry this happened to her. At least she has a kawaiironingboard now.

I'm glad you're being mature about it. Your mother in law seems like a well-meaning lady as well. Sorry for your loss.

The difference is you can't write it off on your taxes by giving it to a family member. Either way, you ask first, that's common sense.

Not that anon but to a lot of the general public, Lolita dresses (especially when not worn properly with pettis etc.) look unfashionable and out of style at best, often even frumpy. It's really not that weird that anon's dadcée saw a dress grouped in with stuff up for donation, recognized that it was made of a nice fabric, but was hardly the epitome of fashion, and thought that she could make better use of it than it hanging at goodwill. Again, it's a kawaii-ass ironing board.

Doesn't mean it's entirely anons fault, looking at what anon has said I think it's fair to assume that she's not a daily lolita/jfasher, so dadcée should probably have noticed that it was a dress out of the ordinary and double checked before actually cutting it up. Hell, even if she hadn't planned on selling it there might be shit like, say, the piece of clothing being really heavily attached to hurtful memories and just wanting it out and away. You'd probably have to be pretty touchy to be bothered about that getting turned into an ironing board, but that still happens.

A bedsheet is a still a bedsheet but I'd be annoyed if my mom cut it up and made stuff out of it without asking about it. Chill out anon you're the one who seems really worked up over this. That was my first post in this thread.

I found the story amusing because it was just a misunderstanding, but it wouldn't have happened in the first place if she either didn't leave it out or the fiance at least asked first or mentioned she left something out. They're both at fault.

Honestly these are incredibly cute and while it sucks you can now iron your clothing on something absolutely adorable. Maybe bring it up to her and say you loved what she did but gently mention you're going to resell future ones so they probably won't be scrap fabric.

So all I have gotten from this thread was people throwing bitch fits over someone repurposing a Lolita dress. Some of you are pretty decent humans about it and are letting it be OPs dress. But the ones of you getting up and arms about it are really making me laugh. When you sell an item, how are you 100% sure that the "integrity" if the dress will remain the same? Or are you all that relentlessly greedy that once you get your money to don't give a fuck what someone does to the item? But then turn around and throw a fit about brand being used for other purpose then a closet trophy.

Update!

I queried the whereabouts of the remaining material and she showed me. She said my dad told her I was "throwing them out" (I have no idea where he drew that conclusion as i specifically said I was donating a bunch of clothes, so at the very least he should have assumed I was, you know, donating them), so she thought it was fine to cut up.

My fault anyway, didn't separate the "sell" pile from the "donate" pile.

HOWEVER...

There were a few other brand dresses I was planning to sell. I assumed they had been donated with the rest of my clothes, as they were nowhere to be found. I was a little sad about that (they were valuable Angelic Pretty, BBSTB and Metamorphose), but oh well.

Then I looked in her material bag and found they had also been cut up... When dad said I was "throwing THEM" out, he did not state a plural by accident... Pics to follow.

Oh and before anyone asks, I did not tell her the truth. She was very excited when she told me about her craft projects with this material, and has no idea whatsoever that I did not intend to throw out any clothing.

I don't want to make her feel guilty, so I let it be.

As much as this was a matter of miscommunication, I think you need to tell your dad's fiancee about the worth of these dresses so she can at least partially reimburse you. To me it sounds like your letting her get away with something that isn't right, and she has no idea. I know you don't want the fuss, but what happens if she learns about how much these clothes were worth in the future, and then feels even more guilty about it.
>>
I think you should tell her. Not to make her feel guilty, but to prevent something like this from happening again in the future. May all those dresses RIP in pieces.
>>
>>9055107
Man you have to tell her. Don't be such a pushover jesus christ.

>>9055089

>>
>>9055117
>>9055135
OP, reading this thread I've been impressed by your maturity and grace in handling this situation. But these anons are right. You have to say something to stop her from cutting up your stuff in the future.
>>
>>9055107
Holy shit anon, I have no words.
But some of these look as thought they might still be salvageable? If so, you should tell her. Sewing the salvageable pieces back together could even be a way for her to "pay you back" you, so she wouldn't have to feel guilty anymore.
>>
>>9055107
You are the sweetest person! It's cool that you're so chill about this. You seem like you have a good head on your shoulders and like you'd be a good person to live with.

This story is totally crazy. I'm sorry for the loss of your dresses, but you now have the best Lolita story I've ever heard. Also, your dad's fiance is really good at crafting! You should put her to work sewing stuff for Etsy. (Not going to lie, I totally want that Kawaiironing board.*)

*Much love to the poster who coined "kawaiironing board." If I could give you gold, I would. Instead, please accept these long-distance applause.
>>
OP, can you tell us what the other dresses got made into?
>>
Nah, it's not an issue of being a pushover, it's a matter of tact. I will talk to my dad about it though. Talking to her won't nip the problem in the bud, it will only make her feel bad - she had no idea what was going on.

While it is primarily my fault, if my dad hadn't have said the clothes were going to be thrown out, she wouldn't have touched them at all.

... Come to think of it, I wonder if my other clothes were donated or disposed of.
>>
>>9055107
In this case, I would definitely tell her, She may end up cutting up some of your other dresses that you intend to keep. The ironing board/table runner, sure... but now she got into your other dresses that you intended to sell for a good deal of money, and now you can't get anything out of them. Tell her firmly that she should ask before going through your stuff in the future whether it be for selling or donating. Excited or not, she did damage your property and it may only continue, and you'll continue to be on edge or worry about your things when you leave. It's better for you and for her if you just tell her.
>>
>>9055187
Just a suggestion, but maybe you can use the remaining material to make headbows and accessories to go with those dresses! It can be a project you work on with her and then break the news to her gently. She needs to know before she decides to raid your closet again and you come home to: "I hope you don't mind that I grabbed another little girls dress! Here's thirty bucks for you to go buy yourself a new one from Target!" As she peeks at you from behind the new door window's curtain made from your Milky Cross JSK.
>>
>>9055089
That sucks but none of those are really valuable
>>
>>9055187
I think you should say something at least to your Dad! To her I wouldn't mention the value, but maybe the fact that you were intending to sell them. You know her best - if you don't think she'll go through your stuff in the future that's easiest, however if she's the sort to go through your wardrobe and "get rid of things I haven't seen you wear for ages" nip that shit right in the bud now.

OP you have to tell her. You don't have to do it in a mean or forceful way, and you don't have to mention how much money was involved. But you do have to tell her so this never ever happens again.

If you accidentally caused her offense or hurt her feelings, wouldn't you want her to let you know so you could apologize and make sure it didn't happen again? Or would you prefer she never tell you and bottle up all the hurt.
>>
would have been awkward if you had a buyer and had to explain this to them..
>>
This is like seeing your pet made into a coat or mittens. It's cute but fucked up. Sorry this happened to you, OP.
>>
OP is way too calm about this. She probably did this herself
>>
>>9055422
It's like it's impossible to believe people can be civil, I know. OP provided as much proof as she could and shared this moment with us. Even if it was fake, it still would rustle some petticoats that this happened to brando. There is no need to be upset.
>>
>>9055422
She was going to sell it. It wasn't sentimental or something she loved. If this happened to me, the initial shock and irritation would wear off quickly. It was an honest mistake and $100 is not that big of a deal to me.

>>9055429

Well on the plus side; you got nicely decorated stuff instead of the maybe 60-80 dollars you'd get for it now. The resell value of anything that isn't a popular print is like nothing.
>>
Since theyre already destroyed, I bet someone (me) would pay you for some cute pillowcases or other home goods made out of the fabric.
>>
>>9055455
Seriously! You could probably make more money selling a bunch of $20 ring cushions or tiny throw pillows out of the brand fabric than you could have from the dresses. Do the front in the brand fabric and the backs in some nice cotton in a complementary color, and make them heart-shaped or ruffled or something. Other lolitas will surely want them. Or maybe pencil cases or those roll-up makeup cases. I bet people would love to pull those out at meet-ups. Or maybe tiny little drawstring purses.

Heck, get your dad's fiance to make them for you! It looks like she's good at this stuff, and the dresses are already gone.
>>
>>9055462
Oh my god I want a makeup bag! I've needed a new one for a while.
>>
>>9055187
Even keeping tact in mind, I think it would be the right thing to tell her about it, because wow apparently she's really good at sewing. Maybe you could tell her about jsk fashion and you could bond over it? Seems like that'd be a pretty happy ending to all this because you mentioned she was really nice. Just a thought
>>
>>9055197
This is a great idea actually. You could try to earn some burandodollars by selling headbows and so on made with some of the matching fabric.

>>9055455
>>9055462
This is also a great idea.

Split milk and all that. It's just stuff, and not irreplaceable or sentimental stuff. It sucks, but there's no point being melodramatic or fuming about it. Recently someone else's fuck up cost me over $5,000. There wasn't anything I could do about it so rather than stew in it I just took the loss and moved on. This is a lot less than $5000 in damages.
>>
>>9055497
Anon, you're kind of salty. I'm not saying what happened to OP is the end of the world, but it does really suck. Implying that her sorrow is trivial "spilt milk" because you lost more is petty as fuck. People have had their life savings stolen and been ruined, so does that mean your thing is trivial? No. There's nothing wrong with being upset over a loss, it's natural. I'd be upset if somebody cut up 4 of my Normie dresses, let alone Lolita.
>>
>>9055520
I don't think they are. OP isn't the one crying over it though, the other people in the thread are. I would say the salty ones are the ones who want to take the fiancee to court, as though dresses are worth more than interpersonal relationships. At the end of the day, it wasn't irreplaceable or sentimental stuff so while it sucks, I don't see the point in being vindictive about it.
>>
I don't understand why you would leave a brand dress out with a pile of donation clothes instead of leaving it in your closet and then wonder why it's gone.

Gracefully accepting responsiblity for being party at fault for situation while gently telling the fiancee is having a good head on your shoulders. You can maturely address yours needs instead of letting others walk on you. Encouraging pushover mentality is toxic. It's that same thinking that stops people from defending themselves in threads where strangers abuse them. But by all means, they were civil and mature in those situations.

Hey OP, I would be interested in buying some of the fabrics from you. I have a little daughter and I'm always looking for damaged brand to make her stuff. Since this has already been cut up, I won't have to feel too awful about doing it myself, and I'd love to help you get some money back from this stuff even though that doesn't seem like something you're too worried about. Dropping my email, please get in touch if you are interested.

Holy shit op, dad logic hit you hard. Im sorry that happened. You his gf and those dresses got caught up in dad logic and a crafty woman took what neat stuff she wanted. Maybe you guys can repurpouse the fabric together and sell some of it on etsy or here or something. It may be a bonding experience and his gf will learn more about lolita and you guys can have fun crafting together. I wish you the best of luck anon. Your kindness and patience are amazing and they inspire me. Thank you lolita saint of fabric pecies and patience.

Oh Anon, I'm so sorry. This would be my worst nightmare. This is the exact reason why my brand never leaves my closet. Kuddos for handling it this well. If that had happened to me, I'd be screeching and crying my heart out.

I still think you should tell her though. Maybe don't tell her how expensive they are if you want to go easy on her but tell her that you were still planning on wearing them. If she's this crafty, she might be able to salvage something.
>>
considering I nearly had a heart attack when I discovered a tiny thread pull on a VM dress of mine the other day I too am having a hard time believing everything happened as OP has said because she's just so calm and literally acting like a perfect human being
>>
>>9052944
I have to applaud you for being so reasonable about this, OP. You were careless to leave your dress right next to a donation pile. Anyone who didn't know anything about lolita would make the same mistake and think it was part of the giveaway stuff. At least your dress still lives on in some way and isn't stuffed into the back of some musty close somewhere. And while the loss of a $400 dress is pretty devastating, and you have every reason to feel sad about it, that ironing board really is kawaii af.
>>
Maybe tell her and ask if she could cover part of the cost. She didn't mean to but that's still horrible. I'm sorry, anon. Here's hoping some good shit comes your way to make up for it.

Lol at people who think I purposefully cut up profitable dresses for 4chan comments rather than selling them and making several hundreds of dollars. I'm as calm as I am because all the fiasco has cost me is money. I am not emotionally attached to the dresses.

Material is not for sale I'm afraid! Sorry to those who are interested in it. Crafting projects have already been arranged.

I'll chat to dad's fiancé.

My dad is not passive aggressive or malicious in any way, this was just a massively derp moment for him.

Right? Not only that but if I was attempting to sell something, even if I messed up on communication, I'd still want compensation because who said you could just do that?
>>
>>9055631
People have made threads about that here and everyone usually gets pissed about replica makers still getting money.

The fabric is totally different as well.

i would ask her for a refund!!!!!!
>>

Thiiis. I hate how many gulls think it's okay to just take it from people.

Oh what's that? Your dress is for sale? How about I just send someone to your house to make crafts out if it, after all, you don't want it anymore right?

You guys are all full of shit.

Stop letting your rage cloud your vision.
>>
>>9055558
Why the fuck would you need to have a relationship with someone that cuts up your belongings or things you're trying to sell?

But let's be real, OP isn't the best at communication, if this is real and she didn't do it all herself for guaranteed replies. This isn't the first cut up dress thread you know....
>>
>>9056176
I was agreeing with who I replied to.
Maybe you need to read better.

OP this is hundreds of dollars worth of dresses... unless you're living in an upper class household that wears high end fashion brands daily, this is a major loss on your part. Hell, if I was in your comm, I would just tell that lady myself

All these comments doubting OP's calm-poor cgl is so bitter and suspicious, like an abused dog.
>>
>>9056192
But it's just that. Money. To some people they are not motivated by money like half of this thread. OP probably sees it as a loss that really doesn't impact their personal expenses. OP probably bought the dresses without thinking about selling them later and recovering the money they spent. They bought them thinking they would love them forever and wore them. The love disappeared and the attachment went away. That's why people normally sell their Lolita. Not to make a profit or to recover what they spent. They sell them because they no longer love it any more. If someone buys it and cuts it up for throw pillows is that persons business. And in this case OP seems to see it that they got a new love by anther person. You can sit there going " I could have gotten so much if I sold this" but OP is humble and sees what joy it brought her fathers fiancé. It's kinda nice really. And a funny story to talk about.
>>
>>9056179
>implying I'm not also disagreeing with the anon above you
Anon didn't even list the dress yet, or even tell anyone she was planning on selling it. If she was planning on giving it away, then yeah, you could send someone to her house to make crafts out of it. You're making a misguided analogy out of your butthurt over shredded brand.

For the people who want kawaii fabric to make kawaii home goods from, don't go the replica route.

You can search for "cute japanese fabric" or pikobeagle on etsy. There's literally yards and yards of really cute stuff, unicorns, cats, wrapping boxes, Alice prints, macarons, etc etc. As a bonus, it comes uncut, no clumsy ripping to take it apart.

Those who want to make curtains from Oo Jia replica fabric should go look for the girl who made Vampire Requiem curtains. It didn't look all that great, the scale was off and the fabric looked terrible.

That's worth $400.00? I have a lot to learn about cosplay.
>>
>>9056486

Hey newfriend, just fyi, these dresses aren't a cosplay at all. They're lolita dresses, which is a fashion style. Although there's cosplay and lolita threads on this board, they aren't the same. They kinda got lumped together due to lolita coming to western attention via anime conventions.

These dresses are worth so much because of their designers and brand. Just in the same way you might look at a plain black Prada dress and think "That's worth $400?", it's all about the brand name with the more expensive ones. Brands also command a better price because they're made of better materials, which is why their final resting place as common household items is pretty egregious.

What are you trying to prove with these images? That she removed the removable waist tie and that you still have the baby tag in some of the fabric? I don't know what your where trying to get at. The baby tag makes no sense since you're not selling it and using the tag as proof it's real.

Also
>>9056470
What the fuck is that supposed to be?
>>
>>9056474
My friend gave me her chess chocolate skirt from oojia free so I could make some wallets and book bags from. It may not happen to every one but you don't have to pay for the fabric.

Plus some people may want the actual print to be something and not some generic fabric they can get. You like British bear? You want more then just a dress? Get replicas and make your self some bomb ass makeup bags, pillow cases, book bags, hair bands. Shits endless. Some people don't morally give two shits if it replica fabric.

Should probably have worded it as "you dont *need* to go the replica route", not just "don't".

anons itt were debating replicas vs secondhand originals, so I just wanted to point out that that's actually the option of buying cute fabric off the rack as well.

For the anon(s) who wanted to make curtains, though. I really don't suggest doing that at all. The scale always looks off, pic related. There's also a Sugary Carnival bedsheet in the archives you can look at. I can't find the Vampire Requiem curtains that look like shit though, might be too old.
>>
>>9056558
I took a bunch of photos of whatever bits I pulled out of the fabric bag - didn't realise that one was detachable.
I don't know what part of the dress she pulled the other rectangular bit from.

Brand symbol is due to earlier suspicions that the dresses were replicas.
>>
>>9056580
I don't speak English as my primary language. So I'm sorry if my point was clouded.

I honestly think that bed spread is quite nice. Some people like the smaller scale. I like how it includes the print without the print being all over the place. It's probably more a preference thing since some people may find the scale difference alluring.
>>
>>9056591
You probably should have said what the images where so we knew and where not being confused why you where posting them.
>>
I dont know. It seems highly unlikely, to me, that OP put one dress to the side to sell and suddenly all her dresses are cut up. Seems like bullshit and seems more deliberate for shock value than it was an accident by her step mom.
>>
>>9056148
>I'll chat to dad's fiancé.
Keep us updated OP!
>>
>>9056558
That's a good point. Why would some lady who doesn't know what lolita is keep the tag in there like that?
>>
>>9056614
If you read >>9055089 you will see that OP had the ironing board dress with other items she was going to list. The fiancé took them all as being donated since they where with the donate pile as well. That's how they all got cut up because she's a crafty woman and saw stuff she wanted to make things with.

Read the thread before coming up with assumptions.

the table runner looked ok but what the fuck is this mess here

A little mad? Thats it? I'd be pissed as fuck if someone unknowingly let me destroy hundreds of dollars worth of something. Also super fucking embarrassed and guilty
>>
>>9056651
Why would she purposely cut out the tag? Have you never cut up old clothes before? You just take what you need, usually.
>>
>>9056772
This is like saying you enjoy reality TV even though you know it's not real.
>>
>>9057742
If I didn't know what lolita was, yeah, I'd take the tag out. Why would you want your crafts to have tags from brands you don't know?
It doesn't add up.
>>
>>9058045
...are there people who don't know reality tv is fake?
>>
>>9055586
I actually really want to do this and asked in a thread before about where to get the fabric and other anons bitched me out for it... I just want to have a Melty Chocolate guest bedroom.
>>
>>9056651
My grandma does repurposing a lot and has saved tags that are particularly pretty to use on collage-type projects, and she picked up the habit from a craft magazine so I'd say its something that others do too. She makes these 'crazy quilt' things that are basically appliqued scraps of fabric and ribbon and whatnot with them. I could definitely see someone thinking that a lolita brand tag with the cute names like Baby and Angelic Pretty would be useful for such a project.
>>
I think the most interesting thing about this is that OP is not interested at all in the anons who have offered to buy fabric/lace from her. I know I would be jumping on anyone still willing to give me money for any of these massacred items..
>>
>>9056566
Even if you don't morally give two shits replica fabric is really shitty most of the time. Love yourself. Buy fabric that is at least quilting cotton quality.
>>
>>9052944
That's sad but at the same time really sweet of her, it's kind of like how people make quilts or pillows as mementos.
