En Vacances in Liberty of London Wildflower

Posted on

Wildflower was initially inspired by illustrations from an early 19th Century book, “Field Guide to Wild Flowers in Britain.”  It comes in a number of beautiful colorways, and this one has bright shades of yellow, pink, and purple on a white ground.  Tiny wild strawberries peak out from among the flowers.

The boat necked sundress has a full skirt that is split in front to reveal the primrose yellow silk capri pants underneath.  The yellow is also seen in the silk bow belt at the waist.  A knotted head scarf keeps every hair and place.

This fashion fits Silkstone Barbie (Classic and Articulated), Poppy Parker, and Victoire Roux

Hostess Gown in Liberty of London Peony Pavilion

Posted on

Peony Pavilion, part of Liberty’s AW15 collection, was originally titled “Chinese Garden.” It was chosen by fashion designer Anna Sui from the archives, and is based on a design from 1974. Liberty has many Chinoiserie style designs, from 1879 and the 1950s.  Chinoiserie was a popular style movement in the 1950s and is made up into a beguiling hostess gown, also popular in the 1950s.  The overdress has a boat neck with a full skirt that is split in front, revealing the bright red silk capri pants underneath.  The same bright red is made into a hand fringed sash that ties on the side. 

This fashion fits most 1/6 scale dolls, including Severine and Vintage Barbie.
