Here is a picture of Alice in Time Burton's upcoming film:






Do you think her skirt is made out of actual rick rack trim, or fabric cut to look like rick rack?  Would actual rickrack fold/drape like that?

A) Its lovely.
B) Try making a small version with regular sized rick rack and see what you think
C) Where did you get the photos?
D) When is the movie coming out? It looks scrumptious!

I swap, so in crafting terms I guess that means I put out... You?

It looks like different size of rickrack tacked together. (Zig-zag stitch on a sewing machine could do that. Or for more drapy-ness, hand-sewn bar tacks.)

So pretty! And I think it would drape like giant lace -- which is sort of is.

What is it lined with?

I was searching online for Rick rack, and that definitely seemed to be the best source.  Thanks!!

That's a good idea.  I was thinking I might stitch a little of the big stuff together too and see what i think.

I think it's set for March 2010.  I guess it will be a mix of regular film and CG, presented in 3D.

Thanks!  I will try that.  I was also thinking about pinning it to a A-line pattern shaped pieces of water-soluble interfacing and then sewing it.  I didn't actually "measure" everything, but I was thinking maybe the 1.25 rick rack and then something around 3/4 maybe? 

I like your lace analogy- that's a good point!

I don't know anything more about the skirt than is shown in the picture.  I'm personally going to use cotton rick rack with a plain cotton (cheap and easy to work with) underneath.  (I think I might do blue and blue like in the picture, although I was thinking that a light brown/tan (like chestnut on the link above) would look nice with a light dusty roey pink underneath.

If you do make it take lots of pictures and share!  Does anyone have ideas for a pattern for the coat.  I love that.

It is really cute!

I think that the closest I've seen is B4929, view C (the black and gold one), with some modifications.


A few others to check out:
Simplicity 3628 is shorter, but the top is similar.
Vogue1266 and Butterick 5295 don't look much like it, but they are long and fitted at the top.
Also check out Buttterick 5125- maybe view E could be modified? 


I feel like there might be some costume patterns out there somewhere with similar features too.

wow, I've never seen such a skirt.  Imagine if you made it with different coloured rick rack!  What is water soluble interfacing?  does it dissolve after you've made something?
The skirt doesn't look lined - maybe you wouldn't need to line it with all that giant rick rack.
thanks for the photo - inspiring as!! wow again!
