Introducing: Little Mary Ida

Here is my 5 inch Waldorf style doll, Little Mary Ida, in her jammies.
 and here is her little twin set, skirt and blue suede shoes.
I am working on more outfits for her before she goes into my etsy shop.
I will post them here also.
 and here is some lace I have been working on in a nice butter yellow size 30 DMC Cebelia cotton thread, on 5/0 (1 mm) steel needles

Here is a little project I have been working on. I try to recreate lace that I see in photographs of old things. In this case it was on the clothing of an old doll.
My recreation of the knitted lace,
it is knitted in size 30 DMC Cebelia cotton on size 
on 6/0 (000000) (0.7mm) steel needles
 from this photo ( the lace in the photo may be of smaller thread) I don't have a scale for this lace.
(I have lost the information on the photo of the old doll so if anyone recognizes it could you please contact me so that I can acknowledge the person who took the photo? )
