Tunic and Trouser Set in Mahjong

Posted on

A favorite game in my family is Mahjong, a Chinese game that uses beautiful tiles made of painted ivory plaques, mounted on bamboo.  Some of the most beautiful tiles depict flowers, seasons, and birds.  This tunic is made from a green tea colored cotton, scattered with ornate Mahjong tiles.  A richly beaded collar of gold seed beads and purple bugle beads lends elegant sparkle to the tunic.  The accompanying trousers are made from dusky purple iridescent silk.

This fashion fits most 1/6 scale dolls, but the trousers may not fit dolls with wider hips, such as Lalka/Severine and FR2 dolls.

Convention Season

Posted on

Hello my friends,

As we move into Convention season, things get very busy in the Bellissima Couture sewing room.  First, the National Barbie Doll Collectors Convention is in July, then the Integrity Convention in October.  I will be selling fashions at both, so need to double my output in the coming months.  I will also be creating charity donations and competition entries.  My hope is to continue listing at least one fashion a day in the Etsy shop, but because of the demands of Convention season, I am unable to accept any special requests or orders until the conventions are over.  By November, I should be able to accept special orders again.

As always, I appreciate your ongoing support and I hope to see many of you in person either in Arlington or Long Beach.

xoxo Hilda
