Description

This is a dress I designed and made in the summer: a take on 1930s styles and my love of Alice in Wonderland! I did a more in-depth post on my blog with a collage of the inspirations, pictures of the muslin process (as I drafted the pattern from scratch, it needed to be tested!), and the final dress:

(The last photo is of me in front of the Alice in Wonderland Teacups ride at Disney’s Magic Kingdom. :)

I think I’ll have to wear this when I go see Tim Burton’s Alice movie this year… lol!

    This dress looks wonderful and so summery! I like the sleeves the best. They have just the right amount of gathering and the white contrast make them stand up and say HELLO! What great talent you have!
