Columbine is a 22" kitty doll. She is made from unbleached calico overlaid with dupion silk, with gold embroidery to the sleeves. Her legs are made from Japanese linen in a natural colour with deep red polkadots.
She has button jointed arms.
Columbine's face is hand stitched with wool felt eyes, and threaded herringbone stitches in blue silk and in gold cotton,accented with scattered french knots. Her cheeks have a soft blush to them. Under one eye she has a satin stitched four point star in metallic gold thread. On her paws he has my signature satin stitch heart, though this time embellished with gold cotton, and a silver star.
Columbine has a removable outfit comprising of a dupion silk dress with an elasticated waist, with leaf embroidery on the edging and a fine lace trim at the bodice and hem, wrapped around with a velvet ribbon, a matching dupion silk jacket with puff sleeves and a red wool felt hat edged with coordinating leaf pattern in kingfisher blue. She has long bloomers made from quilters cotton in a geometric pattern on a charcoal background. The bloomers have an elasticated waist and ruffle edge legs.
Columbine also has co-ordinating red wool felt shoes in red, embellished with matching leaf embroidery and a red satin bow.
All of my dolls are delivered in their own box and have a special tag with their date and name handwritten by me.
Doll approx 22" tall, 30" with hat.
Due to the very fine nature of her clothes, I would recommend this doll have a play value of 5 and up.
The sleeves have an intentional fray to them.
Very gentle hand washing possible, though dry cleaning is recommended for the silk fabrics as some colour run may occur during washing. The hat and shoes are made from merino wool, and careful washing using wool wash is recommended.
