2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Alice IN the White Rabbits house - not your average Alice! on: November 05, 2008 12:59:34 PM
I love making things and I really love Halloween, I make a full costume every year!  This year I decided to be Alice from Alice in Wonderland when she goes into the White Rabbits house, eats the carrot that says "eat me" and grows really big and busts out of the house! (not your average Alice!)



I made the dress so that I could wear it after Halloween (that's why I added a bib front instead of a full apron.) I used an ugly old dress pattern for the top just to get the pleats and sleeve fullness correct (I don't have the pattern # though.) I redrew the whole neck line, made my own bib pattern and modified the sleeve and the sleeve cuff to be 1/2 the length.  I don't have a close up of the bib but its made of 1/4" pleats all the way across and surrounded by a 1/2" ruffle with 7 black buttons down the front. I made the bottom myself with a 4" hem and a white petticoat/slip (not shown) attached underneath with a 4" ruffle to match the apron. (we'll pretend my eyes are open in this picture)


I made the pattern for the reversible apron


back with the apron on


and finally with the felt house on (close up) you can see the split roof, the flower pot and the shutters and door that actually open and close


side view with the crooked chimney (nothings straight in Alice in Wonderland!) and windows on the lower level


finally, all put together!


heres a picture from the disney movie in case anyone needs help remembering this part


I hope you like the idea and the finished product
