Sew Geeky - Alice in Wonderland

This year I had a hard time deciding between a Little Red Riding Hood or an Alice in Wonderland costume for Em's Halloween costume.  I ended up going with Little Red Riding Hood, so I was excited when Sew Geeky gave me an excuse to sew her an Alice in Wonderland dress!


Sew Geeky is a sewing series that happens once a month, hosted by Sew Chibi and Max California. Each month they pick a theme and invite others to sew along with the theme.  This month is Tim Burton month, so I sewed up a dress inspired by Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland!



My inspiration came from the dress that Alice wears in the beginning of the movie at the garden party, where she receives and unwanted marriage proposal and then follows the white rabbit into the woods....


 and then falls in the rabbit hole.  



I used  the Caroline Party Dress pattern by Mouse House Creations, mostly because I already had it printed in her size from her Christmas dress. I altered the bodice quite a bit to have a lower neckline and some puff sleeves.  Then I added lace trim to the neckline and wove a tiny grosgrain ribbon through it and I added a bit of lace down the front with little black buttons.


In the movie, Alice has a little black embroidery design along the bottom of her dress, I subbed some black lace there for a similar effect.


Thanks for stopping by! Make sure you check out all the awesome, geeky, things Sew Chibi and Max California have going on!

  10. We install tile to the walls with adhesive using grout between the tiles keeping them in place and moisture out. However, water and moisture can damage the sealant over time, particularly in older homes where silicone caulk was not used. Modern day caulk was invented in 1896, so if your home is older than that, you will have problems with tile staying in place.
