Inspired by a portrait of Henry VIII’s first queen later in her life, this miniature Catherine of Aragon is wearing a simple black gown with the bodice trimmed in a pattern of pearls and beads.
Peeking out from the neckline is a layer of white lace hinting at her chemise. Her sleeves are lined with organza which is gathered at the wrists in a ruffle and accented with gold felt false sleeves. The turnbacks on her sleeves are made of brown felt. Her richly layered gabled hood is made from black grosgrain ribbed ribbon base underneath her white felt cap. The cap is trimmed with bronze ribbon with bead accents, and the hood is finished with a strip of bronze felt folded and stitched to the top, with a black veil in the back.
Around her neck she wears a simple black felt cross on brown thread. Catherine measures approximately 4 inches in height (10cm) and is entirely handcrafted
