Down the Rabbit Hole

I'm not much into sewing... sure I have dreams about sewing a whole bunch of things, but when it comes down to it, I never really do anything. Anyways, my niece wanted to be Alice for Halloween and the Alice costumes at the stores this year didn't really look like Alice dresses.... they were all princessed-up *gag* So, her mom was shopping for a pre-made dress on ebay and they were so expensive! I talked her into making one.

On friday night we cut all the pieces out, the next weekend we sewed the top half with help from my sis-in-law's mom (who then finished the dress part the next day).... My friend baby-sat one night and we came home and it was done! We should have known better because Valeska is known for her anime costumes. But we were glad it was done!

We didn't see any other Alices trick or treating and I don't think we saw any other handmade costumes! Alivia had a great time! Although, some people didn't know what she was.... I think it's pretty clear!

So anyways, the costume was fun to make and I do see myself sewing more often, but probably not in the near future as the Christmas knitting is less than half done!

That is a very good looking costume. Well done. My granddaughter (16) also had a handmade Alice costume for Halloween, in Tucson, Arizona!
