I'm slowly working my way through remaking the white "Blanchette" ensemble, but because I like to start at the bottom and work outward, the first thing I had to do was remake her shoes. They look pretty bad with the soles picked off.
I wrapped Isar's feet with paper towels, covered with plastic wrap and secured with tape, then built the new soles out of cardboard and craft foam. But the craft foam didn't seem to want to co-operate, so I pulled it off and cut some light gray leather instead. The new slippers turned out quite well.
The skirt layers go slowly. When cutting the waistband for the skirt, I forgot to take into account the thickness of the three gathered layers. Which meant the skirt had to go in the narrowest part of the waist - but the slip was already sitting there. So I had to cut the waistband off the slip and make a new waistband an inch and a quarter wider so it can hang lower on her hip below the actual waist. I don't think I'm going to need the padded farthingale because the skirts already stick way out on their own.
