Back on topic now... I've been working on a (big) project recently, its a costume for me, to wear at my aunt's birthday party later this month-- Its Alice in Wonderland themed! She decided that we're going to a tea house, and we all can dress up! So, my first choice would've been to make her blue dress, (the one from the Tim Burton version of the movie, not the book/movie) but I figured that other people might do the same, and I wanted to be unique... (Ha ha ha imagine that!) So, I decided to make her 'Um' dress. If you haven't seen the movie, please do. It is one of my favorites, mostly because of the costumes! Here's a picture of the dress:
Now, I couldn't find the correct fabrics with my $40.00 budget, so, I went with what I could find. Almost everything is just pinned together in the next couple of pictures, so if you have any suggestions, let them be heard! :)
I still have to add the black tulle to the skirt, and the sash-thing... The bodice is lined and it has fusible interfacing sandwiched in there somewhere... It makes it stiff, and not see-through. Its not the best, but not bad for a couple of hours and $40! (Actually, I only spent about $35.00, there's about 6 yds. of tulle in the skirt, and I'm thinking it needs more!)
Thanks for looking!
