Today I have been finishing off some tiny rainbow ballerinas which have now been listed on the website.
The dolls themselves are particularly dainty, measuring just under 1 3/4" tall and have jointed arms and legs so that they can hold their balletic poses. They are either en pointe, with both feet on tip toes, or standing with one toe pointed.
Despite their diminutive size, there is great attention to detail in their costumes which include colour matched leotards with frilling around the legs, pure silk net tights and silk ballet slippers with leather soles. The ballet tutus comprise three layers of pure silk and organdie ribbon, in subtly different shades.
They have wigs in a variety of colours and styles, each one finished off with a gem-encrusted headress to match the costume, and a filmy feather.
I've added several new colours to the range so there are now 12 different shades to choose from.
They are all now nestled in their boxes and I have a lovely warm feeling of satisfaction.
Some days I just love my job......
