'S wonderful! 'S marvelous...!

Ella Jane has been inspired by a song entitled 'S wonderful! A song sung by the marvellous Ella Fitzgerald. 


 As Ella was initially famous for singing in ballrooms during the mid 1930s, I decided that my little Ella Jane should have a glamorous gown complete with silk shawl, diamond brooch, a pearl necklace, and of course, no self respecting 'Cupboard Bear' would be without her hat!  


Ella Jane is 9 1/2" tall. Approx 24cm. She is one of a kind, five way disc jointed. Her tummy, feet & paws are part glass pellet filled to make her nice & weighty.

Ella Jane's mohair is sand coloured, she has matching ultra suede paw pads, beautiful black glass eyes and carefully trimmed feet & paws to show her stitched black claws.


Ella Jane's gown is created  using vintage white cotton lace with intricate eyelet detail and a scalloped hem. The bodice of the dress is made from more vintage English lace.

The shawl is pale pink silk crepe, secured with a Diamante pin. Around Ella Jane's neck she has a string of pearls. 

Ella Jane's hat is fashioned from pale shell pink silk, trimmed around the brim with more lace and an overblown flower in a glorious dusty pink colour. The centre of the flower has three while pearls.

This sweet little girl will arrive with a stitched in tag on her back, the tag has my name on it, while around her neck she will have a swing tag with 'Ella Jane' and my signature on.

To adopt Ella Jane please email me for more details.
