For my daughter's first birthday party I did an Alice in Wonderland theme, except I called it Alex in Wonderland since her name is Alex, which you probably already figured out.  Smiley  This is the dress I made for her, I used the Tim Burton and Disney movies for inspiration.  I didn't use a pattern, I made it up myself.

Big ol' eyes!  The white rabbit button is one from my stash that I instantly knew had to be a part of this dress.

This is best picture I have of the front, she isn't a very cooperative model.  Smiley

Side view.  Something is wrong with a bit of the bias tape there, but I didn't realize it till at the party.  Undecided

The back.  I need to learn how to do zippers, because getting a squirmy baby into a lace up dress is quite a challenge!

"A learning experience is one of those things that says, 'You know that thing you just did? Don't do that.'"

You made her an amazing costume!
It looks so good on her.
And without a pattern? Great job!

That is sooooo cute! I would wear an adult version of this dress in a heartbeat. It is just great!

My wedding this last September was "Alexz in Wonderland." Great minds think alike!  Cheesy

And you have an amazingly beautiful little girl there. Her eyes are stunning!
