|Limited Edition tan Briana by Peak's Woods as Alice.|
Peak's Woods limited edition tan Briana (SD size, about 23") is wearing her default eyes and a Michele Hardy wig. I made her this "Alice" outfit out of an extra sock--as my washer and dryer has a nasty habit of eating socks. It's actually a light blue (maybe just a tiny bit periwinkle). We have a sock challenge at this week's doll meet, which was given to us last month by Monica.
You'll need: a single sock, I used an adult woman's sock, above the ankle, sewing machine with zigzag stitch, thread, needle, and trim if desired.
- Cut the sock off from the ankle down to just before the heel. The top of the sock will be the top of the dress.
- If desired, finish the top edge and/or bottom edges with a narrow zigzag stitch. (Really, this is optional.) I stretched the edge while feeding it through the machine to get a ruffled edge.
- If desired, fold the top edge over and gather the front in a single stitch for a more fitted look. I did this while the dress was on the doll for a perfect fit.
- Add trim around the waist, as a belt, or empire seam if desired. Tie or add a snap.
My dress was pretty short, so I made a pair of hot pants from the extra part (toe end) of the sock. I finished the top and bottom edges as before, and tacked the crotch with a single stitch in the middle. Voila!
