Lady Jelena

A 26 inch One-of-a-kind Polymer Clay sculpt by Michelle Lightner.


Lady Jelena's head w/breastplate, arms and boots are sculpted in ProSculpt.

Her gown is a circa 1883 Ball Gown made of Duponi silk and embellished with embroidery and lace. The gown was inspired by a photograph, plate 61 from the Victoria & Albert Museum, depicted in the book "Four Hundred Years of Fashion". The interpretation of the pattern, with adjustments and compensations for a doll-size gown, was drafted and sewn by Michelle Lightner. Many hours of drafting and fitting muslin pieces resulted in a costume befitting this beautiful lady, complete with historic undergarments.

She has glass eyes, a mohair wig and lashes, and sculpted 18th century boots. She has a poseable wire armature over a cloth, fiberfill body. The permanent wooden stand is made from an unfinished wooden base, sanded and varnished. A dowel is attached to the base and a PVC pipe is inserted into the cloth body. The dowel is inserted at the crotch to ensure a proper stance and sturdy display.
