Antique Alice in Wonderland

March 15, 2010

Classic and whimsical as Alice, striking as the Red Queen; these beauties will demand attention in any color combo you can think of.  All-in-one pattern includes instructions for three-button wrist cuffs and four-button spats, along with a special technique for a decadent and frothy antique “tattered” looking ruffle.  Instructions for making a custom size to fit your actual measurement are also included.

Please see *A NOTE ABOUT NEEDLE SIZES* below before purchasing
