When I was a child, one of my favorite books was about the art of Swiss-German Expressionist artist Paul Klee. Klee used a great variety of color palettes from nearly monochromatic to highly polychromatic. His works often have a fragile, childlike quality to them which, combined with bright colors and interesting shapes, made his work very appealing to me as a young child. It was the colorful, abstract works that I liked best, such as this work called Flora on Sand from 1927.
When I saw this fabric, I was immediately reminded of Paul Klee, and so created this sheath dress in his honor. Squares and rectangles in a variety of colors and sizes create a vibrant palette for this form fitting sheath. The wide neckline is richly beaded with lime green bugle beads alternating with tiny magenta seed beads.
This fashion fits most 1/6 scale fashion dolls.
LOVE this ! And the story! So beautiful!
Thank you, ladies! I love these colors. And it amazing how vividly that book from childhood has stayed with me.
