Alice In Wonderland

Have you seen the previews for Tim Burton’s new Alice in Wonderland movie? It looks amazing. I love Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter. I have this beautiful Alice in Wonderland import fabric that I got from This and That from Japan (Lisa actually has a few versions you should check out)…and used it to make this skirt and shirt set:

I used reverse applique for the skirt (see tutorial here). I drew images (heart and teapot) similar to the ones on the fabric onto interfacing and then ironed it onto the wrong side of the fabric:

Before sewing the skirt together I pinned the applique to the backside of the skirt and stitched around the edges:

The best part of reverse applique is cutting out the final image:

A funky Alice in Wonderland-inspired twirl skirt (pattern to be out soon):

To make a set, I took a plain white tee and screen printed a magenta crown the front and added a spade shaped reverse applique:

The finished shirt with rhinestones attached:

Another Alice-inspired dress….using a Disney Cheshire Cat shirt:

With one of the sleeves made from a teapot print:

Seen anything cool lately that is Alice-inspired?



    Ahhh!!! I love it Ashley! This is one of my favs. I wanted a Alice In Wonderland necklace (one that portrays the new movie with Johnny Depp) and couldn't find one that I liked so I found a key cover instead and added some jewels and made that my necklace! I'll have to get a pic. Thanks for sharing, I'll have to check out Lisa's site! Check back and follow for updates!

    Everone in my house is waiting for this movie to come out. The fab clothes are as creative as the movie itself!

    Love these! DD's valentine's dress was Queen of Hearts inspired, but that character will not be in the new movie. I may just have to make her yet another dress lol :)

    Just wondering when you mentioned screen printing if you are using a Yudu? We purchased one recently and I'm still learning how to work it with the emulsion and cheaper ways to have it around the house for "fun" use. Before I ask too many other question, I guess I should find out if that is what you are using or not. Ha! :) Hope so!!! m(dot)powell(at)suddenlink(dot)net
