We absolutely LOVED the new Alice in Wonderland movie! I knew I HAD to make a set featuring the new re-stylized characters! To say this set was a labor of love would be an understatement! I've had this in the planning stages for months. I could never decide on the perfect fabrics, and I bought at least 3 different lines of fabric before stumbling upon these gorgeous fabrics. I loved using denim in the design too.
And my most favorite thing of the whole set is without a doubt the adorable mini top hat! I knew I had to make a top hat to go with this set (especially since my model refuses to wear bows!!) So here it is! And you can find it on here on ebay too.

I'm having so much fun designing this set!! Emily loves it and she insisted on a matching hat. Ummmm...I've never made a top hat and really had no idea how to. Luckily I found a handy dandy pattern and came up with this...
I can't wait to take some modeled pictures!!

Oh, how I love the Vida! It's versatile, comfy and just plain adorable. I sometimes agonize over fabric choices for it, then all of a sudden it all comes together and I love the outcome!! Use lots of different fabrics and fun trims to make it fun and funky, or just a few of your favorites for something sweet and simple. I've even figured out a pattern for 18 inch dolls!
I'll be honest though, when I first saw the Vida I didn't like it. I had to put my own spin on it to fall in love with it. It's now my "go to" pattern. Perfect for BIG appliques, and I just love it worn as a tunic with jeans. Awesome for layering and adorable with leggings and a tee. Ahhhh, how I love the Vida :)
