Tilda Mini Rose

Posted on

One of my favorite fabric designers is Tone Finnanger of the Norwegian company Tilda.  A few months ago I ordered a number of fabrics from England, which seems to be the closest place to find Tilda fabrics.  Known for their whimsical and romantic prints, Tilda fabrics are perfect for 1/6 scale sewing.

This particular pattern is called “Christmas Play in Mini Rose.”  We have been having a great deal of wind and rainy weather, so I made a trench coat set in this grey printed cotton.  Tiny, old fashioned roses are scattered on a grey ground.  The coat is lined in an antique rose silk and sports pale pink faceted buttons.  The sheath dress has a rose printed skirt and antique rose silk top.  A pale pink silk sash and bow accent the waist.  A cluster of vintage velvet millinery flowers with Swarovski crystals in the centers as a brooch is a feminine touch.

The fabulous shoes are not included, but can be purchased from Ann Grahek’s shop on Etsy.  The amazing painting of Barbie as Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring was a gift from my dear friend Rogier Corbeau.
