Alice in Wonderland Wedding Dress

Alice Wedding Dress 1

I have always dreamed of the idea of doing an Alice in Wonderland wedding, but as much as I would love an Alice in Wonderland wedding gown…. I probably wouldn’t go full on themed dress for my actual wedding. That said, I kept dreaming of what that dress would look like… crisp white silks, flowing teal organza, and somewhere… stripes.

This costume was actually a fun challenge, since I wanted to have a huge flowing skirt, but not spend a fortune on fabric, since it takes a lot of tule or organza to really give it the volume I was looking for. This would require a hoop skirt, and the hoop needs to be hidden by more than just a tulle tutu. THIS was the perfect project to try something different with my new sewing machine. Also, a great time to try being a blonde ūüėČ

Ultimately, I LOVED how it turned out! I wasn’t confident enough to try sewing the corset piece, so I went with a purchased one, which I ended up having to resize anyway (and broke my first needle *tears*). I played around with the idea of doing different accents, but once I got the base of it finished, I loved it so much I didn’t want to change a thing.

It also looks pretty sharp without the hoop skirt! Definitely a big difference in volume. And considering just how hot it was outside, the hoop skirt was a welcome relief from the warmth underneath the skirt.

Speaking of under the skirt… I love these stripes! Keeping them hidden allows the dress to be elegant and classy, but exposing the tights brings in a fun flair with a nod to the Alice in Wonderland wedding theme.Alice Wedding Dress 12
