Bluebird of Happiness

Posted on

The symbol of a bluebird as the harbinger of happiness is found in many cultures and may date back thousands of years.  This Tilda print from Swedish textile designer Tone Finnanger depicts blue birds perched in stylized trees blooming with pink and blue flowers.  The bodice is off the shoulder with a V neck.  A band at the waist and large bow on the hip are made of aqua silk.

This fashion fits Silkstone Barbie, Victoire Roux, and Poppy Parker.

Bubble Dress in Liberty of London Lodden

Posted on

Lodden, one of the great arts & crafts textile designs of the past, was originally designed by William Morris in 1884, but was made into Liberty’s own design by re-scaling and re-coloring.  This colorway is in shades of orchid, grey, pale pink, rose, and yellow.  The off the shoulder, dropped waist bodice is gathered at the bust and decorated with beads and pearls in pastel shades.  A silk bow belt in orchid silk defines the waist.  The voluminous bubble skirt is as light as a souffle.

This fashion fits Silkstone Barbie, Victoire Roux, FR2, and Poppy Parker
