Close, but unless you want ero-loli be sure that the skirt goes all of the way to your knees (touching the top or middlish. Technically you can go even longer.) The dress from HonestDragonChina has too much lace in my opinion. The dress above that one is much better. This is a great place to learn more, and the forum there is where I learned the most about Lolita: http://www.lolitafashion.org/

Also, don't forget to wear a petticoat with this. I wear an organza one from Qutieland.

I actually think that the HonestDragonChina one looks more lolita, though sadly the pictures are actually stolen from Angelic Pretty. Silly e-bay sellers. Alice themed sets used to be really popular back in the day, and brands still do release them from time to time so there's quite a bit to look at for inspiration. Here's a bunch of stuff:

Essentially they are just a bunch of lace and ruffles added to the original design, but there's also a lot of nice little details on these like heart-shaped apron tops, pockets or designs on the apron skirts, buttons in themed shapes, etc. I think it's a pretty flexible idea, but details are really important in this sort of outfit. I hope that's helpful!

lol, I guess my classic loli is coming through in my comments. XD I'm not into sweet, and tend to react poorly to this much lace, but it does depend on what the op likes.

I actually grew up with an Alice outfit like this. My grandparents insisted that I dress to suit my name. I need to find or make another.
