Description

This is an alice in wonerland costume which i made for a teaparty:) the design came from a combination of pictures i found around the place, as all of them were a bit different. i didnt use a pattern for anything but a slight bit of the bodice. it took me about 2 days to made and i love it:) i wear it with a tube skirt underneath which i made for a previous costume.

Material Notes

all the dress and apron were made from sheets from an op shop, which can to $7, but the ribbions cost me $10 all up:O so that was the expensive bit!!!

    What a cool, cool Alice costume! Mine looks like a really pathetic excuse for a blue dress all of a sudden :) Yours is so very, very cute.

    I had an Alice tea party for my last birthday, with all my friends as the different characters. I SO wish I had had your costume. Jealous much?

    What a wonderful interpretation! It’s just so fun and theatrical, and I’m sure you were a big hit at the tea party. I love the first photo where you’ve made yourself look Alice after she grew! Was everyone at the tea party in costume, or were you the only one?

    That’s Alice on acid :), reminds me of my favorite Jefferson Airplane’s song ’Go ask Alice….

    Hey, it’s my “Un-birthday” today! The tights give it an edgy feel to the outfit. Too cool….
