So cute! I used that same fabric for a artrollup for my nephew. It's so fun! She looks like she loves her dress!

Thanks to the both of you for replying.  I ended up just figuring it out on my own yesterday.  I'm sure it's not perfect but I'm happy with it and so is she so it'll be ok.  I'll post a pic of the finished dress when i'm done.

Hey costumers!  I'm looking for a tutorial or something on how to make one of those victorian overskirts that are a semicircular gathered bib with a bustle in back.

Kind like the front of the first one on this page but i want it to hang lower in front and a different bustle:  http://www.demifashions.com/catalog/demipatterns.html

the only thing I can figure is to basically make a whole top skirt and then just tuck it up and gather it in the back for the bustle?

basically, what I'm doing is retooling the alice dress i made for my daughter into a victorian little girls dress for "Christmas Carol."  I got a darker calico and then a solid darker blue to do a ruffle and I thought that shape would work well with the alice dress and tone down the light blue.  I'm also changing the sleeves and adding lace and buttons etc to the top of the dress but that's another matter entirely.

Any help would be appreciated.

Rapunzel (prior to tangled coming out)

I made the dress from modifying a mccalls pattern.  The wig was a grown ups rapunzel wig that i unbraided, tightened and then rebraided to give her that floor length hair.


I used the tutu i made for the angelina ballerina costume and made the petal bodice to go over it so the costume could be worn over a shirt or a coat.  There was no pattern for the bodice.

She did love it.  And she was very happy that no one else was the same character.

In kindergarten my daughter had a storybook character dress up day.  She was Angelina Ballerina.

I bought the leotard but made the tutu and the ears.  She also had a white felt tail hanging out from under her tutu.

my daughter was in Alice in Wonderland Jr at our community theater over the summer and I made her dress.  I used the mccalls alice dress pattern but modified it.  I made the pinafore without a pattern.

I made a full petticoat under the skirt and the skirt moved so nicely on stage!
