Another Alice Costume

Yes. I like Alice in Wonderland. And it's a favorite of mine to costume. There are so many variations and interpretations one can explore. 
This is just a basic (classic) version. 

A peasant dress in blue damask with a white mini-pinafore. The dress has casings with elastic at the neckline, sleeves and empire waist, making a versatile and comfortable fit.

The apron is a true pinafore, which ties around the waist and the bib attaches to the bodice with mini-safety pins. It's trimmed in lace and has simple card suit apliques done using heat-n-bond.

Perfect Accessory:A Creepy-Cute White Rabbit Plushie

Amethyst Ruffles: Steampunk Dress & Bustle Skirt

I haven't played dress-up in a while, but have a whole bin of items to list on etsy (leftover from my vendor's booth at Horsefeathers Haunts)  so bust out the make-up, accessories, camera and tripod!

Up first, Amethyst Dress & Bustle Skirt

Made from an amethyst colored 'silkessence' (faux silk), trimmed with lots of ruffles and lace.

Also with hood. Why? Because.

The Dress and Bustle Skirt are separate pieces...
