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.
