Steampunk Alice in Wonderland
Autumn opted to go as Steampunk Alice to accompany my Mad Hatter. We made her outfit out of cotton and altered a few patterns into one. We embellished with a variety of buttons, iron-ons, and lace. Layered under-skirting gives volume of the skirt and grommets inserted in the back for a lace-up effect.
And Sunday I was Steampunk Dorothy from Oz. This was the least expensive to make, all lightweight cottons and scrap fabrics plus a basket I had from something else. I dipped an old pair of shoes in glue and then red glitter to make the “ruby slippers.”
It was SO much fun and the costumes were a huge hit – especially Willy Wonka!
