This vibrant red and white Tilda fabric is the work of Tone Finnanger from Norway and features the Dala horse, an icon of Scandinavian culture. It was in the small log cabins deep in the forests of Sweden during the long winter nights in front of a log fire that the forerunner of the Dala horse was born. Using simple tools, generally only a knife, woodcarvers made toys for their children. Horses were a natural choice of subject. The red and white colors are a common palette in Scandinavian Christmas celebrations, such as the festival of Santa Lucia on December 13.
This charming dress has a boat necked bodice and full skirt. The skirt is given volume from layers of red shimmer tulle. Two flat bows in red grosgrain decorate the bodice and a gold and crystal Christmas tree brooch sparkles on the bodice.
This fashion fits Silkstone Barbie, Victoire Roux, Poppy Parker, Nu Face, and FR2
