Pink Lemonade Mix and Match Series

Posted on

When I found this fabric last week, I could almost taste the tartness of the lemons.  It felt like summer.  The prints are all related in color and pattern. 

The first outfit is a coat ensemble with pants and a top.  The capri pants are made from bright lemon yellow silk.  The sleeveless shell is made from white eyelet lined with pink silk, giving a touch of color that shows through the holes in the eyelet.  The swing coat in made from a brilliant print in bright pink, white, and yellow and is fully lined in bright yellow silk.  Faceted white glass beads serve as buttons and a white enamel flower brooch shines on the collar.

The second outfit is a slim sheath dress in the same lemon print at the coat, but in shades of yellow.  A white silk sash and bow defines the waist and a silver and pearl brooch sparkles on the bodice. The dress is fully lined in white silk.

The third outfit is a Rockabilly dress in pale pink scattered with bright yellow lemons.  The sweetheart bodice has a pleated band that stretches under the bust and over the shoulders as straps.  A full skirt invites twirling at a summer mixer.

All outfits fit Silkstone Barbie (classic and articulated), Poppy Parker, Victoire Roux, and FR2

All three outfits are sold separately on Etsy.
