For my homemade Queen of Hearts costume, I use what I needed and I started with no pattern. I just looked at the picture of the dress and just started to draw out cut and then started to sew. I love to sew and took out a lot of mistakes and resew and it. Took me 3 months to finish it because it has a lot of material on it and it’s heavy.
I won two costume party awards for the best costume. And, I also received a lot of nice words about the dress, its the best one anyone has seen.
