|Alice Illustrated In Marjorie Torrey|
Marjorie Torrey was one of them.
|Truly Degas Inspired|
|And a Red Hair Band|
I also chose Marjorie Torrey's illustration as her second dress because the green had an autumn feel to it - like a forest. However, while finishing the back with hooks and tiny thread loops, it came to me that with the red headband, and the green and white of the costume, it would be perfect to keep her in through Christmas.
Other illustrators I would like to honor with a rendition of their dress for this doll are Rene Cloke, Maria Kirk, A.E. Jackson, Gwynedd M. Hudson, Arthur Rackham, Agnes Richardson and Maybel Lucie Attwell...to name a few. This little doll is such a perfect size to sew for. An entirely enjoyable experience.
Please enjoy some of the illustrations from Marjorie Torrey's 1955 (copywrite) edition of Alice in Wonderland. Notice how incredibly dear the little animals are!
