Alice Tea Party Dress

Perfect for tea parties, Halloween events, school dances or just for wearing around the house if you are feeling in a wonderland mood. The Tea Party Dress was created with a lovely selection of wonderland blue fabric, vintage black ribbon, a giant hand made flower on the bodice. The front of the gown has a fun wonderland look and the back ties with a lovely sash. 

this dress was inspired by tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland starring JOhnny Depp and mia wasikowska

“"If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?” - Alice, from Adventures in Wonderland

Alice inspired Tea party dress

Alice in Wonderland is one of my favorite stories and creating costumes inspired by the famous book and movie adaptions is always a great time. 

mad Hatter Style Hat

This hat was inspired by the one worn by the Mad Hatter in Tim Burton's version of Alice in Wonderland. My hat is not identical in every way to the original one from the movie, but as with all my costumes it is simply "movie inspired". Further details can be seen below. 

Fabrics for the hat included silks, SATIN and vintage trim. I also hand painted some daisy flowers on the end of the pink sash. 

 

mad hatter inspired jacket

One of my customers was looking for a jacket inspired by The Mad Hatter from Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland. The jacket we took inspiration from was the one worn by Johnny Depp throughout the movie. The jacket appears to change colors a bit as the movie progresses. So I decided to go with a rich chocolate brown silk accented with distressed details. A hot pink pocket square adds a pop of color to complete the look.

The jacket featured here was a women's size small, but it could easily be created and adpated for all size ranges. 

Wonderland regency dress

This Regency gown was inspired by the Alice in Wonderland story and also by Tim Burton's signature director style and mood. The gown is created with a lovely white embroidered cotton fabric that is fully lined and accented with a black and white striped cotton. We also added my Alice inspired Gloves to complete the look. The sleeves are a classic puffed style and the skirt is a double layered very full gathered silhouette. For an added bit of fun, I painted words from the "Jaberwocky Poem" *from "Through the Looking Glass" story onto the front of the gown.

alice gloves

These little gloves were inspired by the ones worn by Alice in Tim Burton's Alice and Wonderland. Made of an elegant and soft knit cotton fabric that has been fashioned into fingerless gloves. Oh, so comfortable and cute. The side seam has been accented with antique buttons of a mix matched variety. With 2 or 3 on each glove it adds a bit of Victorian charm to a somewhat modern style. Perfect for exploring new worlds or wandering in your own.
