Pippa Middleton Bridesmaid Doll Item Number: 2625-0019
A stunning portrait doll of Pippa Middleton as she appeared at the Royal Wedding on April 29, 2011. To capture that dazzling moment when she first appeared on the the world stage, our gifted artisans have lovingly sculpted the doll entirely of fine porcelain. Her delicate facial features are skillfully painted by hand. The Pippa Middleton Bridesmaid Doll wears a masterfully detailed replica of the memorable maid of honor outfit custom-made for Pippa. Just like the original dress that created such a sensation at Westminster Abbey, this hand-stitched, figure-flattering gown features a lovely cowl neckline and a row of buttons down the back. Our expert seamstresses have even re-created the delicate lily of the valley hairpiece, which was designed to match her sister Kate’s wedding bouquet. Sparkling teardrop faux-diamond earrings add the perfect finishing touch. Measures 16? in height (including the base). She will be priced at $159.00 with 4 payments of $42.00. She will be shipping in the fall possibly October.
Those of us who are still waiting for William to arrive i was told that he is due in next week so keep watching for his arrival at my h0me.
First of all I have to say I really wasn’t expecting much with this set. Since this company focus’s mostly on thier pricing than the quality. But at least they did give us something new for the doll so they get points for that. Upon arrival the outfit were pacakaged in white envelopes sort of like the priortity mail envelopes. Each one has Catherine’s family crest on the front See below:
The shoes are better than the black ones that came with the Blue Issa dress.They used patent leather this time So they actually stay on the doll’s foot rather than just hang there. But they are sort of a pain to put on but they will fit. One tip: take the ring off before trying these fashions on the doll to save your self from snagging them.
Next one was the Canada Day ensemble first thing I noticed was the hideous hat which is made out of resin… Really.
The dress is too small across the bustline. Shoes fit fine, the one thing I did like was the maple leaf brooch it can be used on the Fm Kate
The last one I was even afraid to look at it but it did not seem to be as bad as the Canada day.
The lace could have been a tad bit darker for me. Out of the 3 I think the Reception gown and this one are the better ones. If you are thinking of ordering I would just get those two and forget about the Canada day outfit.
My rating for this set is C: Cute idea but could have been done much better.
This is a adorable sticker book each page has a drawing of Kate and William and in the back are 10 pages of removeable stickers. The stickers include several of the Duchess’s outfits including the wedding gown, the yellow Jenny Packman dress and the lavendar Alexandra McQueen gown. also included are pjs for the Duke and Duchess to relax in. really cute book for that little one in your life who loves all things Kate.
This was one of my daughter’s birthday gifts today.It was made by my friend Bea of Bea Doll Boutique.
