Wonderland Dress

Because a girl can never have too many Alice dresses (and I got this cool fabric a while back and had no idea what to do with it until a couple months ago)...
Simplicity 2591 View A with custom collar and added ties for 'faux apron' look. In 'Royal Family' cottons and periwinkle blue silk (which was very stretch-tastic, not easy to work with, uberwrinkly, and the dress is so large/stretchy that I can pull it over my head without using the zipper...so not so good)
The back is wonky/too large despite being taken in a couple inches at the zipper. It's very large at the neckline and in the shoulders. Alas, I am/was too lazy to mess with it. Perhaps, later...
 I had cut this out a couple weeks ago, and look what I got for my birthday! An Alice shadowbox locket from my friend, that matches perfectly! She posted a tutorial and everything up on crafster.

  1. I think it's lovely! I saw your birthday present on craftster- look up the comment by the_naked_doll because that's me and I'm pretty sure it was epic.

    Or I deleted what I wrote and wrote an entirely appropriate comment. I can't remember.

  2. I think you kept yourself to a concise post (something that's beyond my abilities) :-p
