The Cheshire Cat
Alice in Wonderland
Last Updated: 08-16-2009
I've wanted to redo my Cheshire Cat costume for a few years since the original was thrown together rather hastily back in 2006. The spring of 2009 became the time to finally make those plans a reality when the purrrrfect purple and pink striped fleece fabric appeared at JoAnn's and Lolita decided to revisit the Alice In Wonderland theme for the 2009 tea party, this time with a Steampunk twist. I had a lot of fun with the design, and although I kept the original skirt (hacked off the bottom of the original dress) the rest of the costume is brand new from the ground up. I even added a new bustle to the old skirt! I love the result; it's more comfortable, more flattering, and more true to the character than the original.
