Les Cerises Party Gown

Posted on

Today I was inspired by this vintage gown to make my own version. 


When I am inspired by real fashions, I rarely make an exact copy. It usually isn’t feasible to make exact copies in miniature, so I try to get the overall impression of the fashion.  I chose this gorgeous tone on tone Indian silk brocade woven with flowers in cherry pink silk.  Unlike most brocades, this one is as light as air with a beautiful hand.  The bodice has one shoulder and then a strap on the other side.  A dressmaker’s bow marks the point where the strap meets the bodice.  The skirt is extra full, with layers of fuchsia tulle.  A wide cummerbund draws attention to the tiny waist.

This fashion fits Silkstone Barbie.  It may fit other dolls, but please inquire as there is no guarantee.

Now on Etsy!
