My Alice In Wonderland costume made for Halloween last year.
It's not exceedingly well made, and the fabric definitly came from Walmart, but it's hella-fun to wear and I'm proud of the paint work I did on the apron.
The pink lace along the apron and sleeves was colored with a sharpie because I was stupid and bought lace that wouldn't dye.

White sakura pattern kimono is made from combined silk and synthetic fiber. The lining is silk taken from original kimono lining. Very interesting is sleeves' lining - it's pure silk, very old and light, bright colors, hand fan pattern. Of course you can see only tiny part of it on the sleeves, but it's good to know about hidden beauty. That is also a Japanese tradition. Kimono decorated with flowers applications and glass pearl beads. Cotton tie added.
Bright purple nagajuban is pure silk. Very thin. Woven pattern and hand colored flowers. Nagajuban is decorated with rosy silk stitches and biser beads. No lining. Cotton tie added. You can wear the nagajuban as separate kimono or in the other way like outer layer.
Pre-tied obi is easy to put on. It is made from real girl's obi. Why girl's obi? It has small pattern so it fits for doll. Obi band is decorated with flower, chainlets, beads and 2 bells. They are tingling! Hand-braided obijime with obidome. Well, that's not the real obidome, but obijime's decoration anyway. And obiage - it was sewn from real pink obiage. Shibori pattern.

I altered an American Girl clothing pattern to fit a late Tudor style- circa 1540's-1550's. I drafted a full Boleyn-style sleeve; however, due to a difficulty with the green fabric, I included a stomacher that matched the petticoat rather than the gown. I used a French hood pattern I found online- and I printed it off at 25% and it fits 18" dolls perfectly. This is a Christmas present for my best-friend's daughter; made out of a stretchy dark-green velour and a red faux silk.
I made this in the fall of 2002 for an independent study art class. I was a senior in high school then. I'm rather fond of this dress. The Tudor period is one of my most favourite fashion eras, and so I made a doll dress based on fashionable clothing from about 1530. Everything is sewn completely by hand, since I didn't know how to use a sewing machine then. I made the pattern myself based on a sloper in The Dolls' Dressmaker by Venus A. Dodge, and I bought the fabric (with the exception of the plain black cotton lining and the white cotton for the chemise) in New York.
The chemise is trimmed with black featherstitching around the neckline and wrists, since black embroidery was popular on chemises at this time. The overskirt has a fairly long train, which I'm not quite sure you can see in this picture. The outfit also included crimson satin undersleeves and a French hood, but I don't know where exactly they are at the moment.
