Classic Suit in Turquoise and Lime Floral

Posted on

This formal suit silhouette is softened by the playful floral fabric in which it is made.  The jacket has a rounded collar, bracelet length sleeves, a narrow waist, and flared peplum.  The vintage floral pattern consists of turquoise and lime green flowers with touches of red and olive green.  A bow belt in turquoise silk defines the waist and a silver butterfly brooch adds interest to the collar.  Faceted turquoise beads act as buttons.

This fashion fits most 1/6 scale fashion dolls.

Classic Suit in Abstract Floral

Posted on

I was very drawn to the colors of this fabric; a deep teal blue/green with an abstract foliage design in dark blue with pops of sulfur yellow.  Although the suit is a classic 1950s silhouette, the fabric makes it modern.  The jacket has bracelet length sleeves, a nipped in waist and moderate peplum.  The broad collar is decorated with a sparkly owl brooch.  Teal pearl buttons decorate the front.  A sulfur yellow silk bow belt defines the waist.  A pencil skirt finishes off this classic suit.

This suit fits Silkstone Barbie (classic and articulated), Victoire Roux, and most other 1/6 scale fashion dolls.

Classic Suit in Bright Summer Floral

Posted on

The formal lines of this classic suit are softened by the vibrant cotton floral fabric from which it is made.  I had only a scrap of this fabric, so this is a true one of a kind ensemble.  The colors are so happy; bright yellow, pink, and green pop on a white ground.  The jacket is narrow at the waist with a flared peplum and sleeves are bracelet length.  The round collar sports a tiny enamel handbag brooch.  White faceted buttons decorate the front.  The slim pencil skirt completes the look.

This fashion fits Silkstone Barbie (Classic and Articulated), Victoire Roux, and Vintage Barbie.
