The MaD Hatter dress

Well... I'm not super proud of this one or anything... but Boo's likes it.

She is IN LOVE with the new Alice in Wonderland movie (which she got for her birthday!)

So... when she asked for a 'mad hatter' dress from the movie, the easiest thing to do was to purchase this mad hatter shirt in the juniors dept and cut it up.
The fabric was a real.... um.... not fun to work with, so it looks horrible, but she's happy. So... I'm happy, too.

I used the Sienna Dress pattern, but I still haven't perfected how to do the necklines pretty. UGH!
Ella picked all the fabrics herself and we added the little reverse applique star from Planet Applique!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who has trouble with that neckline ;)
