Bellissima on display at The Silk Road

This past Saturday I was delighted to be invited to a special one year anniversary party at my friend Gay Appleby’s fabric shop The Silk Road.  Since I am a frequent patron of the shop and use many of Gay’s fabrics in my fashions, she asked me to make a few outfits to display at the party.  During the course of the afternoon I met so many talented, creative people!  Many commented that my fashions brought back memories of saving pocket money in order to buy a new outfit for Barbie each week.  What a compliment!  Because of course, that is what I, and all my fellow doll clothiers, are aiming for when we make these tiny ensembles.

I snapped a few photos of my setup and am sharing them with you.   You will notice many of the girls are toting the amazing work of La Boutique.  People were very impressed by the bags!  Sadly, I could not claim credit for them.

Bellissima Couture Gets a New Look!

Hello friends and welcome to the new look of Bellissima Couture!

Since 2007 crafting miniature couture has been a wonderful hobby, but starting this September it has become my profession.  Making fashions is now my full time job.  With this transition, I have decided that I will no longer be taking commissions, but rather will introduce a few new fashions a week that will be offered here for sale.  With this change I am hoping to return to making more outfits.  For those of you who love the individual pieces, not to worry! I will continue to offer wiggle dresses, party dresses and other Bellissima favorites from time to time.  And if there is something you are missing or would love to see me make, just post a request in the comments!
