This was a fun little project with vintage fabrics! And since I couldn’t find a Cheshire cat the right size, I had to make this little fellow to go with Alice.
The dress is made from vintage nylon dotted swiss (sheer baby blue………….with attached batiste underslip). The little pinafore was made of vintage batist that I hemstitched with blue thread to embellish it. I made the little Cheshire out of felt…..he’s so tiny that he was stitched entirely by hand. The stockings were made from some striped knit.
