Alice in weird fitting land

On an overall opinion, the Alice costume itself was not bad, the dress is usable and the headband works. The stockings that fell down so easily and fit awkwardly can easily be replaced by some striped stockings and this outfit would be fine to wear. The buttons hang and I can fix those, so there isn't anything major going on that would stop me from wearing this once I make the modifications. I wish it was a powder blue like in the photo but this will work as is for a cute costume.

Introduction
I ordered the Alice costume by Coquette in size 1X/2X .
When the costume arrived, I noted that the color was not like the photo on the product page. It's not a powder blue like the photo, it is more of a mint color.









The costume is 80% Nylon and 20% Spandex.

The colors in this costume are black, white, and mint.









There are 4 pieces to this costume set. The Dress with attached apron, the stockings and headband.
There is no petticoat included in the kit, although the model must be wearing one in the stock photo. You can purchase one separately if you're looking for the puffy skirt look.

I will talk about each piece and I will be starting with the dress.


Dress

The mint colored dress has an white attached apron. The length of the dress is 31 inches from the top of the breast area to the end of the ruffle at the bottom. The dress is 19.5 inches across the breast part, not stretched. The skirt portion can be stretched to a very large size so if you have a very large bum or thighs, this will still fit great. The dress at the same point while stretched is 23 inches wide. The apron has a black bow that is 3.5 inches long.




It sits at an angle on the lower right of the apron. That bow is sewn on well. The apron is 13 inches wide and the length is 9 inches from the top of the band.
The straps on the dress are the adjustable straps that can be found on bras and tank tops. One of the straps had a few frayed edges.




At the longest point, they are 19 inches in length. At the shortest, they are 10.5 inches. These work well for me since I am 5'2".




There is a crochet type trim on each side of the middle white part of the dress. Each trim piece is 13 inches long. There are two sets of trim. In the middle of the trim, there are 6 shiny black, plastic buttons. The middle white portion measures 7 inches across. These buttons are floppy and are not sewn on tight. They hang down while wearing.




On the breast part, there is a layer of white ruffled material covering the top of the costume. In the center of this, there is a black/white checkered bow sewn onto the dress. It wants to flop up while wearing. There is one black button in the center of the bow. The bow measures 7 inches long and 4.5 inches high at the largest part.









The dress is extremely comfortable. It feels silky on the skin and does not itch me whatsoever. The color is pretty but just not the one that I was expecting. The dress itself is sewn together well with the exception of a few loose threads and the sagging buttons. It was loose on me in the stomach area somewhat but I am used to that. The dress is not sheer but being the material that it is, it did show my panty line through it. You may want to wear a smooth panty or if you are feeling naughty, wear nothing at all underneath. My measurements are 38 F Bust, 36.5 waist, 41 hips. The dress fit tight on my breasts but loose in the waist area. I am going to try some sewing on the buttons and the dress to spruce it up to my liking. I will purchase other stockings to wear with this outfit. I think that some black and white striped ones would look perfect, so I'm just throwing that out there. The dress hits me right at my knees while wearing with heels.

Stockings

The stockings are a black and white checkered pattern. They are 33 inches long and they are the same pattern and material as the bow on the dress. The top of the thigh area on the stockings measured across is 9 inches at the very top. In the middle of them, they measure 6 inches across. The toe part measures at about 1.5 inches. I laughed while measuring these as my tiny toes would not make it to the point. They do have quite a bit of stretch to them and would be great for someone with longer legs. There is a bow on the top of each stocking, they measure at 5 inches across and the tails are 4.5 inches long. The bows on the stockings hid under the dress due to my height, the stockings did slide down when I walked because of the material.




Experience
(Continued)

I will just come out and say that these were the weirdest fitting stockings that I have ever put on. They are like a long triangle and the toe part goes into a point. They are so long that they went to the crease of my leg and my stomach. They stretched in a very odd way and had the pattern looking stretched out in some areas. It was hard to keep the seam line on the back straight. It kept wanting to twist on me. The stockings are sewn very well and the material is very thick for a stocking. It reminds me of the material that was used on one of my daughter's dance costumes. They are not sheer.

Headband
The headband is white and it measures 15 inches in total length. There is a cute black bow attached to the side which is the same bow as the bow used on the apron. It ties in nicely with the costume and I like the headband. The bow is 3.5 inches wide. It can fit a variety of sizes from a child to an adult. It is plastic under the fabric and it bends easily to fit the desired head size. I like the headband and will keep that around since it is very versatile being black and white and I'm sure I will use it with another costume as well.



Follow-up commentary
This outfit fits so much better now that I have sewn some stuff on it and I ordered some other checkered thigh highs. I am excited to wear this to one of my costume parties in October.

    Really great review. Good to know the thigh highs were fail. I probably would have bought this costume just to get those. Where did you find different checkered thigh highs?
