Eileen in Raffles Hotel

To celebrate my birthday, last week I went to Raffles Hotel with my family. And I decided to take one of my dolls with me. Eileen (A Girl for All Time Amelia) was wearing a 1850-60s dress I made for her from a pattern by Thimbles and Acorns. Raffles Hotel was opened in 1887 at the time when Singapore was a British colony so it was very appropriate to photograph a Victorian Girl in a Victorian Hotel.

  1. The hotel is stunning! The white really stands out amongst the lush green gardens and the blue sky. Ellen is gorgeous and I love your blue dress. The blue on her brings out her eyes.

    1. Thank you, Melangell! http://www.swish-swirl.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_rose.gif The hotel is truly special. It’s the most special hotel in Singapore, a major tourist attraction as well. http://www.swish-swirl.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_heart.gif
