A lovely print in shades of turquoise and aqua, touched with gold, makes up this coat fashion.  The swing coat is fully lined in Tiffany Blue silk dupioni.  Turquoise pearl buttons decorate the front.  A gold crown brooch (removable) adds sparkle to the collar.  The sheath dress has a Tiffany Blue silk bodice with a ruched bust.  The turquoise print makes up the skirt.  A dark turquoise belt defines the waist.

Aqua Sparkle

Posted on

I also submitted a design in the advanced design competition at this year’s Integrity Toys convention.  The challenge was to design a fashion inspired by the early 1960s.  I chose the year 1962.  The silhouette in evening wear at the time was high waisted, with a bell shaped skirt.  Sparkle brocade was popular, as were large bows with fringe.  The boat-necked bodice is made from aqua and silver brocade.  The bell skirt is made from aqua silk woven with silver.  A bow in the same fabric decorates the high waist.  The auction includes the gown and the diamante bow hair ornament.

I am offering this fashion via silent auction.  Please submit your bids to my email before 8 pm West Coast time, Sunday, November 8.  hildaewestervelt@gmail.com

This fashion is being modeled by a Poppy Parker doll on a Monogram body.  It will fit Nu Face, Poppy Parker, Silkstone Barbie, Monograms, and similar dolls.
