Wonderland Tea Party

Custom Mad Hatter Birthday Tea Party Shirt

This was a custom order for a repeat customer. She is throwing her two year old a Mad Hatter Tea Party Birthday Party. I worked up several drawings, but ultimately the customer actually drew this out for me

and after a few tweaks and some colorful fabric...I think it turned out really delightful. 
I lost count on the hours I spent on this shirt but I'm pretty sure we're looking at the very least 8 hours... of cutting, laying out, re-cutting, re-laying out, hand sewing...and more sewing. Not to mention the time I orginally spent drawing and redrawing tea cups with various #2s and Wonderland items...But it was worth it for this very cute shirt.
 The end result I think is an adorable birthday shirt. Hope she loves it!
