Alice in wonderland costume

Maggie changed her mind about a hundred times regarding her Halloween costume this year. Anything Gwen suggested to her she said she would like to be. So we sort of made a game out of it. But for a long time she wanted to be a pioneer just like Gwen. But when we went to the store to pick out the fabric for her costume she saw a picture of Alice in Wonderland and told me that she wanted "to be a girl" (She has never seen Alice in Wonderland.) Luckily we already had black shoes, tights, a white apron from an old costume and some black ribbon. So all I had to do was make the dress. I'm hoping that now that she has the costume, she won't change her mind again.

We used New Look Pattern 6448. I didn't have any trouble with it and actually wished I bought nicer fabric so after Halloween I could add some colorful details so she could wear it to church and stuff because it looks cute on her. I will keep this in my pattern box and probably use it again.
I did deviate from the pattern a little on the sleeves. I'm all for an easy Cap sleeve, but Alice obviously has a sleeve with a little more umph. I'll have to do a tutorial on how I did it, but that day is not today.
