I recently posted about having carelessly let a whole box of doll clothes I had made get thrown out.
Yes, I did. Because I did not look in a box- all gone.
Alice's original Wonderland dress was in the box.
As was this blue dress I handmade and...
these two matching Christmas dresses I made and some more. I was so upset and wondered for awhile what I would do. I finally decided to look for pre-made dresses online. I first found dresses from the 1950s for Toni. Lately I have been searching for dresses for my 8" Alice.
The first dress I found was this Madame Alexander blue striped dress. I thought this might make a great Alice in Wonderland replacement dress! I would have to add an apron and shoes, but I liked it. I waited for it to arrive to be sure it would fit - it fit perfect! So I started looking for other Madame Alexander dresses. Next came this dress...
The ad said this was a Canadian dress. I liked the green dress and the bonnet was adorable! I am not so fond of the purple apron and collar. I thought it would really be sweet with a white apron. SO, I set it aside and kept looking.
Next I found an ad with TWO dresses together. I snapped them up and they are adorable!
I love the little pin decoration at the collar - so sweet!
These dresses are so adorable and have such beautiful details!
Remember the Canada dress? I added Meg's apron and doesn't it look great!?
Love this bonnet.
As I was getting ready to snap photos of Alice's new dresses I realized I still needed an apron for her Wonderland dress.
And here it is! I love how this turned out. Here she is all ready for adventure.
I used some bric-a-brac I had in my fabric bin.
Not bad, I think I like it.
I almost forgot! Look at these adorable shoes and stripe stockings!
So, Alice and Toni have a new wardrobe and I have had fun shopping for them.
