I made these for my sons and my granddaughters, who are as follows:
Red Queen: Rosemary, 5wks
Alice: Audrey, 20 mths
The White Rabbit: Aldous, 25 mths
The Mad Hatter: William, 3 yrs



The Red Queen's dress is a Kwik Sew baby dress bodice with self-drafted sleeves, skirt and overskirt. It closes w/ one button on the back. The red is a crushed velvet panne, and the black is a satin-like fabric. Trim is vintage white and gold rick-rack. My daughter made her crown from poster board. The shoes are store-bought black shoes painted gold, store-bought tights.


Alice has a linen dress from a peasant dress pattern in Lalala3 with 3 rows of elastic shirring at the sleeves and the neckline. The hem is trimmed with white rick-rack. The apron is a self-drafted from white stretch cotton poplin. Store-bought headband, tights, and shoes.


The White Rabbit is a self-drafted zipfront jumpsuit out of fun-fur and felt and a satin-lined hood, with a self-drafted coat w/ split tails to accomodate the handmade pompon tail. Vintage buttons, trim, and home-decor lace ruffles add the details.


The Mad Hatter is wearing reconned thrift store jacket (women's size M to a size 4t!), with homemade uniform polo (white shirt), self-drafted vest w/ vintage button, handmade hat w/ hatband and pins, self-drafted short pants with spray painted gold stripes, spray painted boots. The jacket was painted, embellished with vintage trim and home decor lace and lace ruffles. The buttons were replaced with vintage buttons, and elastic added for a closer fit.
The bow tie has a pin fastener. Socks are store bought, wig is store bought, but painted orange. Thread bandolier is vintage trim with an elastic thread holder sewn on, spools from stash (most vintage)










I think that's it! I had SO much fun making these! Thanks for looking!

They all look so cute! :3
The detail you put into these costumes is really amazing. I'm especially fond of the lace accents you put on the coats.

These costumes are SO precious!  My favorite is definitely the Mad Hatter.  Your son pulls off that costume really well!  He looks so sweet and proper in the picture without the wig, hat, and overcoat, but once he wears those items, the Mad Hatter persona really comes through. Smiley

William's a ham, for sure! He's a great model, and had SO MUCH fun in that costume!

That is so incredibly adorable and awesome.  I love themed costumes and I LOVE Alice in Wonderland.  The baby as the queen of hearts... awww, just love it...  That last picture is too fun!
