My sister in law had an Alice in Wonderland themed 21st party, and I didn't want to pay $$$ to hire a costume so I decided to make one, pretty daunting since I hadn't made a dress before!

Turned out pretty well, the stripes took me the longest to sew together! I sewed the Tulle onto the lining pretty dodgy but it worked in the end!



Cute Cheshire cat button I found

You can see the tulle better here

It was definately a good learning experience!

Boldly going where others have probably been.

That is great! Your hair looks perfect for the costume too. Good job.

A very cute and well made interpretation of the Cheshire Cat. I can't believe it's your first dress!
