Game designer American McGee posted these three photos of the dress from Electronic Arts's forthcoming Alice sequel (PS3, Xbox 360, and PC). The woman showing off the outfit and wielding the kitchen knife is HongLe, a concept artist at the game's Shanghai developer Spicy Horse. The above shot shows HongLe in the "classic Alice pose", seen on the original game's cover.

Spicy Horse created the dress in Shanghai and is using the dress to help its animators study the character's movements. The dress is also meant to prepare the studio's motion capture actor for upcoming sessions. You can see more concept work and art for the Alice series, including this fabulous image of Alice swimming in a pond under the Cheshire Cat's terrifying gaze, in American McGee's Flickr set.
