The Alice Dress

So... I never got around to posting my Alice in Wonderland costume. Things have been weird, but I'm absolutely in love with this dress. So much so in fact, I wore it to my work's holiday party on Friday. Nothing like Alice stealing a bottle of Baily's from someone!

this was taken in our medical records office

This dress was made from 3 patterns and was dubbed the frankindress early on. The skirt is from my first Alice pattern and I use it on all my jumpers. The top was originally done from the same pattern as the skirt until i got the whole thing together and remembered I HATED how the whole thing hanged on me. So, I took a pattern from my mom's stash and a blouse pattern I still haven't gotten around to making, and created something I'm very much in love with. NO ZIPPERS OR SHEERING ON THIS ONE!!!! The apron was made up as I went. I wanted an Alice: Madness Returns look. I think I did fairly well in getting it.

The shoes I had bought for other lolita outfits, but honestly, they where for this dress. I adore those mary janes!!!
