Alice gown pattern?

Postby ~MadderforHatter~ » Tue Oct 26, 2010 9:20 pm

Hey there AiW fans :-)

I really want to make the gown Alice (Tim Burton version) wore to the party at the beginning of the film (reference photo here: http://www.mtv.com/movies/photos/a/alic ... kowska.jpg) Does anyone know of any patterns I could use that don't need too much alteration or anyone I could contact to make the gown for me? Thanks a lot!

I think there's someone on the forum who likes knitting...

I'd try a local sewing store to see if they have a costume pattern. You could also try a thrift store to see if they have something similar in design that you could easily alter. Even if you were just to use the skirt or top part that would save you the work of making the whole thing. It really depends on how much work you're willing to put into it. :-)

That's true, I should try to do that sometime. Thanks :)

Not a pattern, but an absolutely mind-boggling resource from a young (perfectionist) woman as she attempts to make a replica (In reverse chronological order, naturally)

And another resource for folk attempting to make replicas

Some possible pattern links someone found

Costume

Or you could try putting "vintage blue dress" into google / images / shopping and see what turns up
