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.
