Great idea craftmuffin! And very nice costume, too! When I first looked at the picture, I said to myself : "ah! She's dressed as Alice in Wonderland!", even though your title only said "pioneer dress" -- so you've succeeded in making an instantly recognizable look, and that's exactly what a good costume does! I agree with you that there's only so much time a person can devote to a one-use constume, but yours turned out well in spite of that, and so I'd suggest that if you really aren't going to wear it again, and aren't going to keep it, that you at least consider adding those buttons and then giving the costume either to a local college's drama costume-shop, or to Goodwill, because this is the sort of basic dress and pinafore that can be modified dozens of different ways to suit dozens of different costumes! ... Oh, hey, I like the costume of your white rabbit friend too --did you make those ears and vest as well? Great idea to make Alice and the rabbit as a "couple" costume. It's fresher than most couple costumes out there.) :)

Ha! Funny you should review this, as I made this into a Goldilocks pinafore for my adult sister this year. I only made the apron (blue gingham) and attached fake puff sleeves in white to it. She wore it over her work clothes to an afternoon Halloween party with her staff of "three bears". I agree that there aren't any adult costumes for these should see what I found when I did a search for "adult Goldilocks." Yikes!

Yeah, where did those rabbit ears come from? How do you get them to stand up so nicely? Do they stay on your dh's head. I'm making hats with ears for my dgd's. Oh, nice adaptation of the pioneer pattern, too.

Thanks for the kind words about the Alice outfit. Yes, the vest and ears (and wobby wire glasses) on my husband are my creation, too. DH helped me mangle a couple of wire hangers into ear shapes, which I covered with fuzzy felt and duct taped to a plastic headband (also covered in felt). They were too big and top-heavy to stay on very well, so I added an elastic chin strap for extra support. In the end they were a lot of fun since the wire made them posable. :) I'll add a review for the vest pattern soon, too.
