Embellishing Ella


With embellishing in mind I set out to make Ella.  So with her tiny underpants, tights, underskirt, skirt, over skirt and her velvet jacket she has five layers of clothing on:)  Each piece I finish completely even if you don't end up seeing it.  I just can't stand the thought of unfinished panties under all her clothing.   Ella is free standing and measures approx 12" tall.

In making her I had to dig deep into my stash of vintage laces and linens which was a really great thing, I found stuff in there I had forgotten I had.  It's good to rotate your supplies from time to time.

I've been diggning through Victorian parlor photography for clothing inspiration and I think Ella's little get up would fit perfectly into the era.
