Classic Suit in Millefiori

Posted on

Millefiori is a glasswork technique which produces distinctive decorative patterns on glassware. The term millefiori is a combination of the Italian words “mille” (thousand) and “fiori” (flowers).  This decorative glass is made by fusing multicolored glass canes together, cutting them crosswise, joining them into new groups and embedding the groups in transparent glass.  The fabric of this suit is reminiscent of millefiori glasswork with circular patterns in turquoise, purple, and lime green on a sky blue ground.  Each circle is liberally highlighted with gold.  The jacket has bracelet length sleeves and a moderate peplum.  Tiny gold filagree buttons decorate the front.  A circular brooch set with turquoise and moonstone beads sparkles on the collar.  A purple silk bow belt defines the waist.

This fashion fits most 1/6 scale fashion dolls.
