I adore this fashion and believe that it opens up a whole new world for miniature scenes and dolls house themes. Whether you collect Neo Victorian or Gothic miniatures you will enjoy the wonderful combination of frivolity and sobriety, technology and fashion, soft feminine touches and harder masculine lines. I love poking about in my collection of tiny findings and parts to find just the right trim for each miniature hat. You may even find something that you like on the Victorian millinery page
Even if you don't have a dollshouse these small items can add a totally original touch to a vignette or floral display
I will gradually be adding a limited few designs but if you have any particular colours or styles that you would like to see included in this collection...just let me know.
