Dorothy Tea Party Dress

I recently got the chance to update my Dorothy dress for a WoW Event. The theme was Alice in Wonderland so the colors of the original dress went perfectly. Basically I redid the top of the dress which involved removing the straps and cotton cups. Replacing those with a new white sweetheart shape underneath an overlay of chiffon trimmed with light blue ribbon.

I documented the process in the photos above. I draped all the pieces using a dress form sized to the models measurements, finishing one side and then mirroring for the other. I was so pleased with how it turned out, the model looked amazing and we all had a blast at the tea party! I was just happy to have the opportunity to contribute.

Thanks to WoW and Elisa Thibodeau from SNAP Magazine and Elisita Photography for the photo of Aisling Goodman, our lovely model for the day.
