I began this a while ago, probably last year, but quit because the skirt was a disaster, and was stating to look like a plate tutu. I asked a few other cosplayers, and one of them was kind enough to explain that she made her tutu separate from the dress
Whenever I have a costume that involves a voluminous skirt, I end up with a monstrosity of ruffle tulle lying on the floor.
Eventually, it became THIS. I used Sugardale's tutorial for this, but had to adapt it to work for 6 tiers. I basically made the lowest tier about 8 metres (I know!), the next 1 a metre shorter, and so on. To be honest, it's not the best method for a big petticoat like this one. If i ever make a similar petticoat again, I'll make it like a normal tiered skirt without worrying about ruffles, then make the ruffles separately and sew them on top.
Would anyone be interested in a proper tutorial on making this skirt?I do like the way the skirt turned out. It's HUGE.
The next step is figuring what the heck is going on with the bustle Alice has.
Also, I love this wig-not entirely accurate for Alice, but gorgeous. Has anyone had any experience with this seller?
