I designed and made this for another project at college. I knew I wanted to make something inspired by Alice in Wonderland as I love the story, so that’s when I came up with the idea of making something that one of the characters worn, and also adding another element/style from another character.
Basically mix two of the character’s custumes together – to create a new one.
Instead of a normal waistcoat design (usually with buttons) I decided to still make the button holes, but drape the pocket watch chain through.
I also made a top hat to go with the outfit too.
