 My 11 year old chose this White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland costume (Simplicity 3685).  She isn't big enough for adult sizes so we also purchased the corresponding children's pattern (Simplicity  2834).

I did make the vest from the adult costume, it's just a panel with elastic.  I found some old bunny ears in her dress up closet and I hat I used to wear to make her hat.  She found some sunglasses that we smashed the lenses from for her rabbity classes.  Her stepdad loaned her a very cool pocket watch with a chain - I made some little guides to hold it.  Then I realized she had no tail at the last minute.  I ran back up to the dress up closet but couldn't find a bunny tail.  I did find a Santa hat though.  It's now balless.

(there is one little string hanging from the front of her dress that I yanked off after these pictures. It's making me nuts to see it now!!!)

I love how it turned out aside from the plaids not matching up. She fell in love with this plaid upholstery and it was a bolt end.  I had to peice some corduroy in on the back.  I used lime taffeta for the lining. The dress is made from some drapery moire.  Her neck bow is aubergine lace.

She had a lot of fun with it.  She won best costume at her drama class on Saturday!
Here she is looking at her pocket watch and rapping about being late for her very important date.

Wow, this is superb!  I love the attention to detail.  It's really, really cute as well!

I'm not happy, I'm cheerful. There's a difference.

Thanks everybody!  Truth be told, it took maybe 45 minutes to cut out and around 4 hours to sew it up.  Not too much, really.

Oh, and 3 trips to Joann each between 15-60 minutes in length.  The Joann trips were for the costume, even if all the browsing once there was not.

Wow, the colors are amazing in this. So many different colors but they go together so well. This is really awesome. Much better that a bunny jumpsuit made from faux fur. Smiley

I love this costume. ^_^ It's unique and I love the jacket the most. ^_^ I laughed at the santa hat, you gotta do what you gotta do when you are in need of a bunny tail. This may be a strange question, but where did you buy her boots? They are amazing. ^_^

There he was, painting the leaves on the trees with different designs. My only question was, why turn something so natural into something so man-made?

Thanks!  Like MissTessaMelissa said, it's a lot of colors but truth be told, she didn't stand out that much because most kid's costumes are very, very bright colors.  She just sort of blended in with the fall colors in the dark!  I think she was one of three handmade or DIY costumes in our neighborhood.  We also had the Man in the Yellow Hat and a mime with a paddle that said "trick or treat".

I bought her suede boots from childrensplace.com last year for like ten bucks.  I also ordered two other colors for that price!
