I have been wanting to create ‘Alice’ for a while now. I felt this doll (once made-under and repainted) had just the right look. Then I had to figure out how to make the dress and shoes.
I’m no seamstress so it was more a case of ‘work it out as I go’. I had some old lace that had been hanging around for a while that I thought would go just right for Alice’s apron.
The shoes are always my biggest nightmare but having cut down an old pair of Bratz high heels I then sculpted with paper clay and Modpodge to create these little Mary-janes which don’t look too bad (hopefully with practice they will get better).
She is now in my Etsy store and hopefully an Alice in Wonderland fan out there will want her for sitting on a shelf (or for playing with)!
