Her distinctive personality, the wood carving of high quality and the history behind this doll, were the links that inspired me to make Miss Alice.
She herself is about 19 inches tall and with the hat it is 19 1/2 inches tall. Her clothes are made of early silk and cotton textiles that date back to the mid 18th century. I have posted several photos for you to see step-by-step how I have dressed her. Enjoy!

Here is she wearing her cotton chemise. It is the innermost layer of the 18th century women's clothing.
Her French silk golden-yellow stockings and her garters lend that "something extra" to her beautiful historical clothing. I love to create a striking contrast of colors when I dress my dolls, keeping in mind the unique features of each accessory and garments.
Cotton underpetticoat, also known as dickey.

Alice also wears a lovely fichu made from an early French lace. It's tucked into the front of her quilted petticoat.
