Two Halloween Party Dresses in Superstition and All Owls’ Eve

Posted on

Boat necked party dresses with shorter full skirts and exposed tulle crinolines in enchanting prints for Autumn. Superstition is a print from Japan depicting tiny black cats with arched backed pacing across a white ground. Black tulle peeks out from the hem. Orange silk bows decorate the shoulders.

All Owls’ Eve is a navy blue cotton with a wood block print of owls in off white. Silvery shimmer tulle peeks out at the hem. Shimmery sequins overlay the breast feathers of the owl on the bodice to suggest the iridescence of feathers. Sequins and beads on the eyes catch the light.

These dresses fit Silkstone Barbie, Poppy Parker, and Nu Face

Responding to Blog Posts vs Emails

Hello my friends,

A quick FYI. I just noticed that some of you have been replying to the blog email that you receive when I post a fashion to ask about purchasing. Which is actually a perfectly normal reaction. But those emails actually go straight to the comment section of my blog and for some reason I am not always notified when someone makes a comment. Therefore, I have missed some of your requests to purchase fashions, for which I apologize.

Please always email me through the highlighted gmail link within the body of the blog post to purchase a fashion or contact me directly. Thank you!

As always, I am so grateful for your support!

Princess Aurora

The companion piece to the dark, evil beauty of Carabosse, Princess Aurora is young, innocent and lovely. On her 16th birthday, as she wanders through the palace, she finds an old woman spinning. Curious about what she is doing, Aurora reaches for the spindle, pricks her finger and falls into a deep sleep, fulfilling the curse that Carabosse cast upon her when she was a baby.

Aurora wears a gown in shades of pink and rose. The strapless bodice is made of pale pink silk with rose pink tulle ruched around the top and embroidered with tiny beads and pearls. The shorter, full skirt is made from rose pink tulle embroidered with darker pink roses in white lace medallions. Layers of rose tulle give the skirt volume. A crown of roses for her birthday is the perfect finishing touch.

This fashion fits Silkstone Barbie, Poppy Parker, and Nu Face.

Carabosse

Carabosse is the name of the fairy of evil in Marius Petipa’s ballet The Sleeping Beauty with music by Tchaikovsky. This is the same character that is given the name Maleficent in the Disney film. While traditionally the fairy is depicted as an ugly figure, I chose to make her dark and beautiful.

Carabosse wears a black gown with a silk, off the shoulder bodice with a ruched bust embroidered with pale pink and silver beads. A pale pink silk belt and bow define the narrow waist. The skirt is made of black tulle embroidered with roses in shades of pink and rose. Leaves and vines are embroidered in silvery grey, foreshadowing the thicket of roses that grows up to envelop the princess Aurora and the palace while she sleeps. The skirt is finished with a deep hem of embroidered silvery lace. Black Swarovski crystals sparkle on the skirt. Eight layers of black tulle give volume to the skirt. A crown of roses finishes off this dramatic costume.

This fashion fits Silkstone Barbie, Victoire Roux, FR2, and Nu Face

Coppélia

A ballet by Delibes in which an inventor creates a beautiful dancing doll so life like that a young man falls in love with her. His jilted sweetheart dresses as the doll in an effort to win back his affection and dances for him.

This gown is in shades of sparkling white and palest pink. The off the shoulder bodice in pale pink silk taffeta has a ruched bust embroidered with silver beads and a pink pearl. A pink band and bow accentuates the slender waist. The voluminous skirt is made of white tulle embroidered in pale pink and white flowers. Eight layers of white tulle gives the skirt added fullness. A crown of white roses interspersed with pale pink blossoms is a finishing touch for this lovely dancer.

The Haunted City

Despite its bright, cheerful pink color, this fabric is part of Sarah Watts’ Eclipse collection, this year’s Halloween offering from Cotton + Steel.

The scene is an old city, as evidenced by the style of its towers and facades, at night. We can see stars, a crescent moon, and ghosts in the sky among the buildings. The colors are simple; black ink drawings with subtle washes of pale pink and highlights in white on a raspberry pink ground. The coat is fully lined in black silk with black faceted glass buttons. A silver owl brooch with crystal eyes glints on the collar. The accompanying dress is completely black, with a boat necked bodice in silk taffeta, and a full skirt in embroidered tulle lace with 8 layers of tulle underskirt. A fascinator of raspberry pink roses and curled black feather quills is a whimsical finishing touch.
