A Whirlwind Romance

Posted on

Welcome to Bellissima Couture’s second online event, A Whirlwind Romance!  For this event I was inspired by the themes of Love, Romance and Fairy Tales.   I hope that you enjoy these fashions as much as I have enjoyed making them.

All of the fashions you see here were fitted to the Silkstone Barbie body, but will also fit many different body types, as you can see.

If you are interested in purchasing any of these fashions, please send me an email at

Fashions will be sold on a first come, first served basis.  If you have a first and second choice, please let me know so that you have a better chance of getting a fashion that you want.  I will try to update the website as quickly as possible.  Fashions are made to order and will ship within 2 weeks.

Kiss from a Rose: Sold Out!

This vintage styled coat is made from an exquisite fabric of pink roses touched with lustrous pearl tones.  It is fully lined with pale pink silk and sports pearl buttons.  A slim, boatneck  sheath in creamy silk eyelet is lined in pale pink silk, which shows through the eyelet.  A pleated pink cummerbund decorates the waist, and pearls and pink beads embellish the shoulders.  Edition of 2


Chocolate Raspberry Truffle: SOLD OUT!

A classic swing coat with a nehru collar in a whimsical print of luxurious truffles, lined with raspberry pink silk.  Touches of gold are picked up by gold filagree buttons.  A full skirted chocolate brown silk party dress is decorated with a raspberry silk bow belt.  A raspberry sparkle tulle petticoat peeks out from the hem of the dress.  Edition of 2


Briar Rose: SOLD OUT!

This fairy tale fashion is made from a whimsical Japanese fabric that is covered with charming motifs of shoes, castles, crowns and woodland creatures, all intertwined with the rose vines that cover the castle of the Sleeping Beauty.  The colors are chocolate brown, rose pink and red, touched with gold.  The coat is lined with rose pink silk shot with brown and gold buttons decorate the front.  The classic sheath has the fairy tale print for the skirt and a pale pink silk top.  A red silk belt with a gold buckle decorates the waistline.  Edition of 2

My Funny Valentine: SOLD OUT!

Adorable!  I love this navy blue cotton print with swirling red ribbons and tiny Valentines and it works beautifully for this classic vintage day dress.  Deep red silk taffeta makes up the rolled collar, which dips to a deep V in the back, and a red silk belt and gold buckle trims the waist.  Edition of 2
