I found this lovely Japanese fabric the other day and made up a coat from it in honor of all of my friends who have been in Paris at the Paris Fashion Doll Festival. When I was living in France after college, there was a patisserie down the street from my apartment. The pastries displayed in the window were miniature works of art. I decided to try a different one every week. How did I limit myself to only one a week!? I don’t think I would have such self control now!
The fabric is dove grey with a hint of lavender and is covered with charming watercolor images of famous French pastries and delicate French script. The coat is fully lined in iridescent orchid silk and orchid purple pearls act as buttons. A vintage Eiffel Tower brooch decorates the shawl collar. A fitted, strapless cocktail sheath is made from iridescent orchid silk overlaid with pink and silver lace.
This fashion fits Silkstone Barbie, Victoire Roux, and FR2 dolls.
