This bobbin lace dress is only 1 1/2" .
In 1999 I
did a course about historical costumes with Jacoba de Jonge.
There I saw the original dress, made of fine wool.
I knew from pictures that Queen Wilhelmina wore this style of dress as a toddler.
I immediately pictured this dress in miniature.
nice enough to lend me this dress so I could measure and copy it exactly.
I made the lace with Egyption cotton nr 185.
