Classic Suit in Vintage Liberty of London Wool Challis

The fabric of this suit is very special and has been in my stash for many years.  It is at least 40 years old, and is made from a light weight wool challis.  The pattern is classic Liberty of London, which specializes in color saturated florals in a scale that is perfect for the dolls.  It is also one of the most expensive fabrics I work with, so this is a very luxurious little suit.  The background in an inky navy blue, with coral roses touched with dark red.  Foliage in shades of blue and grey add depth.  Blush pearls act as buttons, and a peach toned cameo decorates the collar.  A coral silk bow belt defines the waist.

This fashion fits Silkstone Barbie, Victoire Roux, and FR2 dolls.

Liberty of London Sheath Set in Osborne

This Liberty print called Osborne was part of the Fall 2014 collection and is described as follows:

“Osborne’s Liberty fabric features the olive, orange, apple and grape. Historically significant in many ways, this fruit design is inspired by a tapestry in Mount Stuart’s marble hall. The sketch was painted in vibrant inks to restore the colours of the tapestry to its former glory.”

The design of this sheath and jacket set was awarded Judge’s Choice at the 2014 Integrity Convention and features a casual cropped jacket in wool challis with an attached Liberty scarf that fastens in front with a removable silver bird brooch.  The jacket is made from Kingfisher blue wool challis and is fully lined in the Liberty fabric.  The matching sheath is made from the Osborne Liberty fabric and is fully lined in Kingfisher blue silk dupioni, which also makes up the ruched cummerbund.

This fashion fits Silkstone Barbie, Victoire Roux, and FR2 dolls.
