'Once Upon A Time' - Mary Had a Little Lamb





'Once Upon A Time' is part of new deluxe Collection of miniature dolls I have created with attention to authenticity, intricate detail and using only fine fabrics.

‘Once upon a time there was a very pretty girl called Mary who had a little pet lamb. ‘It’s fleece was white as snow and everywhere that Mary went, the lamb was sure to go...’

Mary wears a beautiful Regency style silk and lace walking dress in delicate shades of pale pink and ivory. The V necked, high-waisted bodice has a pretty lace insert trimmed with pink picot braid, silk bows and a tiny silk rose. 

The two piece sleeves end in a lace-frilled cuff and are trimmed with more silk bows. The skirt is overlaid with finest embroidered cotton lace and in one hand, Mary carries a matching lace reticule (Dorothy bag).

Underneath are lace trimmed cotton pantaloons, matching petticoat, lace stockings and silk trimmed leather shoes. A sumptuous straw bonnet embellished with silk, lace, roses, braid and pink feather frames Mary’s pretty face beautifully.
