I bought this super awesome royal blue and black damask knit fabric and it was a few months before I realized the perfect thing to make with it! A darker version of an Alice in Wonderland dress.





I liked it so much, I made another version. This one is a blue satin vine print fabric.




(without the petticoat underneath)

I can't decide which fabric I like better... I'm leaning towards the satin because I don't have anymore of the other left and that makes me sad.  Undecided

They are both adorable!!!
Well... I have to go with the first one. The knit fabric stands better when wearing the petticoat. Pity that there's no more left.

Gorgeous! I think my favorite is the first one. I love the damask pattern of the material, and it looks great on you!

Lovely! I agree with everyone else, I like the first one a little more. But I like them both a lot, so there's not really that much of a difference.  Cheesy Amazing job!!!

Thanks everyone!

The pattern is one I drafted myself, though it's not very complicated, so I'm sure there are similar commercial patterns available!

The way the second one hangs, on the dress form, without the petticoat is odd looking. I think they are both cute! I think it needs that petticoat though so it hangs just right.
  If only I had that talent!

I'm sort of amazed that that is a knit.  Really well done.
