For Love or Money Hostess Gown in Liberty of London Dancing Women

Critically acclaimed singer and fashion trendsetter Florence Welch of ‘Florence and the Machine’ visited the Liberty archives to select two of her favorite designs for the 2011 collection. This colorway of the Dancing Ladies Liberty Print was one such design, a wonderful traditional Liberty floral containing ‘Dancing Ladies’ reminiscent of Indian miniatures. It has been a very popular style within the past Liberty collections, especially in the 1920s and 30s.  The predominant colors are dark persimmon orange, golden olive, and teal on a rich blue ground.  Ladies dance to the music of the sitar, played by young men in a garden setting.  Spotted fawns, peacocks and other creatures stand by.

The hostess gown has a full skirt that is slit on one side, revealing the slim trousers in olive gold silk worn below.  A sash of dark orange woven with pink is hand fringed.

This fashion fits most 1/6 scale dolls, although the pants may not fit dolls with wider hips such as Severine or FR2
