A while ago I made a dark Alice costume from the McCall's 6187 pattern, since then I've made a bunch of dresses for myself using an altered version of the bodice pattern. It has been a lot of fun coming up with different color combos and making each one slightly different. I have about another 5 made that I still need photos for but here is what I do have pics of.

Here is the original project

Here is one with a gathered front bodice panel and a patchwork front skirt panel

This one just has a horizontal band on the base of the skirt portion

I made this one for some local St. Piran's day festivities, it is inspired by the St. Piran's flag. I did french seams for the whole skirt piece, many many intersecting french seams were made. Also I made it a way to short, but it is nothing that a petticoat can't help fix

This one was made for Easter, the skirt portion is made up of many panels of different coordinating fabrics.

This one once again was too short so I added a bottom ruffle to it, I wear this one on pretty much a weekly basis.

This one has side panel ruffles and I drafted a basic sleeve for it. I am so in love with the wood print that I used for the waistband piece.

I don't have nearly any photos of my second Easter dress one, but I do have this one. The mask is by a leather worker who lives in my area named Tom Banwell he is amazing he has a awesome Etsy shop as well. I brought the mask along for a photo shoot for my aspiring model sister and the photographer wanted to do some quick shots of me with the mask in my dress. I think he really liked the juxtaposition of sweet bunny dress and creepy bird mask.

Whew... I will have to get on taking pics of my other dresses. It took a lot of altering to get the original pattern pieces to fit the way I wanted them to, but now that I've done all that work I have some pattern pieces I can go back to time and time again.

I love seeing different iterations of a pattern.  Good work!  And you lucky duck to live near Tom Banwell.  I've been stalking his etsy for way too long.

I like all of them but the 4th one with the sheer fabric is my favorite! It's so neat seeing the different iterations of this. You're a pro!

Thanks Dulcet and LimeRiot!
The sheer white and black one has become my unofficial official party dress; I've been thinking about making a second one but with the colors reversed it's on the long list of "to make sometime when I have time" list.

I may be male and all, but the dresses look lovely, all except the brown one! For some reason I didn't like the brown one too well! Sad

All of these are so cute! The Dark Alice one, the Easter one, and the one with the ruffled side panels especially Cheesy
Also, the teacup hat you are wearing with the Alice dress looks so sweet! Did you make it yourself?
