Burda Style – Alice in Workingland

November 9, 2007

Women Trend Alice, originally uploaded by fmirela.

Alice in Wonderland was my childhood favorite story. I remember listening to a tape recording of the story (in Romanian) so many times, that I knew it by hard.

My Alice climbs up the ladder to Workingland, wearing a toned down mature version of her girlie dress. She brings with her into the present 60’s mod buttons to accent the uniform like outfit, ready to face any surprises a 9 to 5 job throws at her.

First round of BurdaStyle designs inspired by Alice in Workingland are out! Congrats to the winners and looking forward for the patterns 🙂

Check them out!

There will be a second round of design contributions to BurdaStyle with the inspiration theme.

    That’s GREAT! I love the collar on her shirt.

    I’d been wondering if anyone was going to try to give her pinafore a modern twist! Love the look. And congrats on winning the Halloween costume competition as well (I honestly didn’t see that blog post on-site until tonight– probably because of all the problems the site’s had lately!)

    Thanks Becky and Caitlin!

    I don’t think I should have won the Halloween though…so many beautiful costumes were uploaded after the post, maybe because of the site problems…hope they get rewarded too!
