Slowly Alice opened her eyes . . . at first, she did not know if she had actually been in another world, or just dreaming in her room. Even more curious was she did not care. She was awake now and somehow everything seemed different.
She fingered the fine fabric of her dress, she felt the floor she was sitting on, she saw the light streaming in the windows with an almost painful clarity. All her senses felt fine-tuned and acute. She now felt who she was (and had always been). It was a stripped down, basic truth . . . and it was hers, all hers. It was indifferent to judgements & tea parties, it was unchanged by demands & unobtainable rabbits, it was not impeded by fears or treacherous queens. Had this journey been of her own making?
In the darkest moments of this adventure is when she truly found her strength and clarity, and a fierce bravery had been irrevocably forged. She knew now that she would have more adventures, but she would walk down her own path and listen to her own voice, choosing what to believe and what to simply let go.!
Oh my, how very exciting . . . !
As Alice existed in this new state of being, she found herself transcending not only her surroundings, but even the identity of her clothes.
The dress began to evaporate in a mist of blue, leaving the bones of her soul open to the experience of the world.
A deep sea-blue crinkle chiffon dress, with a perfectly fitting bodice & gathered strap overlay.
The center loop has a tie which can be tied in a bow or left loose.
The dress has 8 bodice panels which allow for a wonderful fit.
All shoulder straps are adjustable, to accommodate small to buxom busts.
The torso of the dress is adorned with piping in a diamond pattern.
The exaggerated skirt is 3 layers of asymmetric gathered hems, with bias inserts detailing the edges of the dress.
The skirt has 4 floating straps which can be tied to shorten one side, creating swags.
The back has a corset panel to tailor the fit.
The dress is fully lined with aquamarine satin.
[Our Alice is wearing a powder blue petticoat under the dress to accentuate the full hem. The petticoat is sold separately.]
The off-white satin rib corset is elegant beyond words.
The 14-strap corset creates flattering angles under the bust and at the hip.
The steel-boned corset has triple-boned sides, a busk front and a 20 hand-set grommet back closure.
There are 2 loops on the bottom of either side, which are perfect to string jewelry, charms or fabric through.
