A dress for Alice~

I finally got around to finishing the little dress for my grandaughter who is going to be playing the lead in the upcoming "Alice in Wonderland- Mad Hatter's tea party" to be held here on June the 26th.I bought the little lacy dress and added the blue fabric from a pair of ladies silk pants... both thrifted finds. I think in total it cost a mere $2.50. Not bad for a play dress~I've still got to think of something for her hair... a single bow? a headband with a bow? a hat? I also stitched the sails and the pirate bunting for the pirate ship thats in our backyard.
I also added a lot of old discolored netting to the ship as well. I still have to add a fabric roof over the ships cabin, and I'm thinking the ship needs some throw pillows. Now, I'm off to go make party hats for all my garden statues.... I know, nutty huh~
