Biarritz

Posted on

Just before I left for the Barbie Convention last week, I received the much anticipated “Buenos Aires” Victoire from Integrity Toys.  I love her platinum hair pulled back into a sleek, braided bun.  Her vivid turquoise eye makeup and classic red lip color inspired me to make her this stylish suit from robin’s egg blue boucle tweed.

Victoire is going out for lunch in the ultra chic seaside resort of Biarritz, wearing a new suit. The nubby fabric is full of texture and colorful threads woven throughout, so I chose to use a classic silhouette and to leave it simple, letting the fabric do most of the talking.  The shawl collar frames Victoire’s lovely face.  Pearl buttons decorate the jacket and a gold bow brooch adorns the collar.  The large turquoise blue floral hat is an extravagant finisher.
