I’m sure I say this about every second fabric I use, but isn’t this just one of the best fabrics you’ve ever seen?! Again, it is from the endless store of excitement that is spoonflower, the Alice Vintage (double border and text) fabric by Ophelia. The print is the actual Mad Hatter’s Tea Party chapter of the book with original illustrations along the edge. I played Alice in my school’s end of year play when I was in Kindergarten – this fabric was destined for me.
The skirt is the same as my Sea Power Skirt, a basic dirndl, hand gathered, with white bias binding and ribbon for the waistband. There is also a hand inserted side zipper. No hem was needed thanks to the selvedge.
In the photographs I’m also wearing a petticoat I made (project to be added soon) which sticks out below the hem of the skirt. It probably won’t normally be worn with the skirt, but I felt that for my photos it helped complete the Alice in Wonderland look. No point doing a half-hearted themed photoshoot.
