A Labour of Love…

May 15th, 2012

A beautiful Regency dressed bed circa 1811~1820…
specially commissioned by my gorgeous client.

Her vision was very clear she wanted a simple patchwork quilt…
with a random pattern and a country feel for an attic room.

Happily… I accepted the challenge…
my patchwork contains 680 teeny tiny 7mm x 7mm squares

Now thats a lot of squares…
and I’m sure you’ll agree… a true labour of love.

A simple Regency dress has been thrown on the bed…
it pools on the floor, is highly detailed with its ruching and bows.

As always all hand~sewn by me…
After all that sewing… I think I deserve a cup of tea.

A Little Risqué…

May 4th, 2012

Le Boudoir was created for The London Dollshouse Festival several years ago she sold within 10 minutes of the show opening… it was nice to receive a re~commission for her…

Her bloomers have two rows of hand~sewn pin tucks while her corset is highly detailed using vintage laces, trims and tiny pearls. Black stockings and triple strapped buttoned shoes complete her ensemble…

Her stunning auburn hair is held up in place with a pearl comb…
tiny curls fall framing her face and like my original
she has brown doe eyes… and a décolletage to die for…
