Alice is a Series 1, Little Big Eyes Doll from 2001 who was sent to me in my "birthday goodies Box" by my Dolly Friend Donna a couple of years back (pic's are up in older posts), she had a broken leg, which I did a step by step post while fixing a few months back, if you'd like to see the before pic's, you can find them in my "Doll and Toy Restorations" section...
Then I made her outfit (that look the longest time, as I wasn't able to spend time just doing that and it's all hand sewn...so all in all she's taken a couple of years... with the added bonus that I lost one of the sleeves I'd pre-made for her and had to make another, so it slowed me down... but I was determined to finish her last night and I did "Hurrah"!
Her "Cameo brooch" was made from a tiny button and is set against her black lace collar.
Alice is the first "Big Eye (colour change type" Doll I've customised from start to finish... the reason I did so is because she came to me broken and I already have the same doll - boxed, so I felt she would be good practice for me and not such a hardship if I happened to mess up, as it was I didn't and I'm very happy with how she's turned out!
Having just flicked through some photo's of Alice I took the day I received her and started work on her restoration - I'm even more pleased with the results as I can't help but find it so hard to believe that she is the same doll - even though I obviously know she is!
