A cutesy tea dress suitable for imaginary tea parties
So i used this from a pattern i got, but it is just as easy to make without. This pattern is great for a cute Alice dress or just a plain Lolita dress. I love this dress at is is easy to customize. I did all of this on notebook so I wasn't able to show the real thing :P

  • How to make an chracter costume. Alice In Wonderland Dress - Step 1
    Step 1

    this is directions for the top half because this is the most complicated part. Get a large section of new paper

    Measure the length and width of your whole chest (don't worry about it being to boxy you can fix it later.) ADD SOME SEAM ALLOWANCE :D

    My model is a little busty, but you should get a square/rectangle shape.

    Cut out this shape 2 times

    Make a small fold and sew along it to create a smooth edge. This will be the neck. OPTIONAL cut a an semi circle, this will be the neck.

    For the other piece, cut it down the middle.

    Step 4

    This was the most trickiest step D: but don't worry i have faith in you

    ok so get a square of newspaper idk like just the front page and not the whole square. One page will have 4 folds just use one.

    Draw this shape. Think of your arm if you have skinny arms make it smaller if you have large arms make it bigger this is about a medium size for arm.
