This Alice is made from a transparent white and black polka dot cheese cloth fabric recycled from summer maxi dress a friend gave me. It's wonderful when friends and family see potential in an old piece of clothing and generously donate the fabric to me.
I lined the upper bodice in off-white cotton I had on hand. I added an extra few inches of width to the lower bodice front and back in the hopes that the extra fabric would reduce its transparency. No luck, so I typically wear the top over a cami. I like the look of my Alice tops tucked loosely into my jeans or shorts. The fabric stays lovely and flowy (so I can eat all the things!), but I find the cinched in look a bit less overwhelming.
I've been reaching for this top a lot this summer! Note, when berry picking the Alice top does not provide adequate coverage to avoid sunburn or thorns.
