Alice in Wonderland Kids Costume

Hello faithful readers.. yes, I have been out of my blogging mode for a while now.. but now that I have more energy (in the second trimester) I feel motivated to do a little more.. I posted this on my facebook already, but thought I'd try to keep my blog "relatively" up to date. :)

E has been wanting to be Alice in Wonderland for some time now.. I went to the store and found this cheap costume for $20-$25!  I was mortified at the cost of Halloween costumes!  The fabric alone probably cost the manufacturer 30 cents!  So I decided to try my hand at sewing my own.  I usually go buy a pattern, but I was too cheap to do it, so I reference this book that I have...

By the way, I LOVE this book!  It's very helpful if you're new to making patterns.

Anyway.. referenced the book and make E's costume from scratch!  I should have taken pictures of the process, but I was too lazy.  Next time. :)

Though it's unironed, I think it turned out pretty good!  Eddie thinks it looks like a waitress uniform though.. boo Eddie.  I'm thinking of selling the pattern for some money. hahha. 

The back

 The cutie in just the dress.. I'll take a picture with her full costume once it's ironed. :)

Next time.. the Mad Hatter..


  1. I'm popping over from the Made blog because I absolutely loved how your Alice and the Mad Hatter costume turned out. Your kids are the cutest and their costumes were amazing! Great job. :)

  2. My daughter was set on being Alice this year too. She insisted I dress up my one year old as the White Rabbit. I'm not going to lie . . . it was ADORABLE. Great job on the dress. :)

  3. I'll say it again..you're amazing! Your kids are so lucky! I wish I knew how to sew..

  4. Where is the best place to buy kids costumes-even kids Halloween costumes-this time of year? The best place to buy kids costumes of any variety...whether Halloween or even a cute seasonal costume for your child's school Christmas or "winter" performance is online, not your local department, drug, or super store, and most certainly not the mall. The same goes for buying adult costumes as well. You just can't beat the convenience and selections of online costume providers.
