Okay...I just saw Alice in Wonderland, and I'm dying to make the red dress she wears as Um in the Queen's court. Does anyone know of any patterns similar to it? I would rather modify a pattern than go it alone. Here's a link to a pic of the dress:

Thanks so Much!

If I were you, I'd start with a strapless dress pattern that's got a waist seam, like one of these:

And then just modify the skirt which should be easy enough, if time consuming.  That's a lot of fabric, even with a petticoat.  It looks like several layers of black tulle attached to a solid red, with at least one layer (maybe two--uneven ones?) of red tulle laid over the whole thing, over top another, longer layer of red tulle over several layers of black tulle, and I promise you there's a well constructed petticoat underneath all that, too.  I think I would make the red bodice and red/black skirt first, then drape the black and white striped parts over those, before joining.
