For Love or Money Hostess Gown in Liberty of London “Mrs. Monroe”

Posted on

This elegant hostess gown is in a delicate watercolor print by jewelry designer Alex Monroe for Liberty of London.  The artist was inspired by the following passage from Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland.

”O Tiger – Lily!” said Alice, addressing herself to one that was waving gracefully about in the wind, ”I wish you could talk!”
”We can talk,” said the Tiger Lily: ”when there’s anybody worth talking to.” – Lewis Carroll

Tiny dragonflies flit in and out of graceful tiger lilies in rose highlighted with bright pink.  Bright pink silk capri pants can be glimpsed under the full skirt, which opens on one side.  A bright pink silk, hand fringed sash ties at the waist.

This fashion fits Silkstone Barbie, Poppy Parker, Victoire Roux, and FR2 (though the dress will be shorter on the taller dolls)
