Alice - Alice in Wonderland/Through the looking Glass


Following the Simplicity pattern 8234 for the most part, which is more of an interpretation than a traditional Disney Alice.

More ruffles, more! That themed fabric is such a neat touch, looking forward to this :)

First wear!

We went to MCM Scotland in Glasgow! Our costumes got a really good reception, but I really couldn't walk much in the shoes I had! As soon as we got back home the other shoes I'd ordered finally arrived, so I'll be wearing those for future wears.

All done!

All the bows and buttons are sewn on and the hem of the underskirt has been raised an inch! The dress is complete, needs a good ironing but I'm quite pleased with it! Still deciding how to style the rest of the outfit when I wear it to Glasgow Comic Con next week.

So far

The bulk of the dress is finished! All the ruffles and gathers are finished. The zip needs to go on (it's hanging weirdly in this picture because the dress is open at the back) and I think I'll lift the underskirt hem up by an inch or so -- I extended it because I'm leg-shy but perhaps I went too far. :D

Ruffles and gathers

Making the skirt has been an epic adventure in gathering fabrics! So many ruffles.

So many pretty fabrics!

Purchased items!

Using this Simplicity base pattern and doing the full ruffle/crinoline/broderie-anglaise dealio. I've bought plain blue cloth, however (couldn't find a polka-dot I liked) and my underskirt ruffle fabric is an actual Alice in Wonderland print because it amused me. So far the fabric and fixings for the dress have set me back approximately £50. I've still to buy shoes, tights, and a wig.
