English Matryoshkas

English Rose Matryoshka

Hello! Sometimes when I'm drawing my Matryoshka I get attached to two different color combinations. This happened with my Vietnamese Matryoshka so I made one red and one blue (Fire and Water). While creating this English Matryoshka, I came up with an English Rose version and an English Ivy. I decided to offer both in my shop so you can choose your favorite or collect both to have a set!

While researching English fashion history I looked at many, many examples of late 1700's and all through the 1800's and fell in love with them all! I pinned a board of English dress from that time period here.
