Sheath Suit in Liberty of London Rachel

 Liberty of London’s Rachel was newly introduced to the Tana Lawn Classics for AW15 / 2016. This particular colorway of teal, yellow, and fuchsia is fresh and filled with summer flowers like honey suckle blooms, buttercups and Queen Anne’s lace.   The suit consists of a slim sheath with a bright pink silk noil skirt and Liberty print boat necked bodice.  A band of the print defines the waist.  The cropped jacket in the pink noil has bracelet length sleeves and is fully lined in the print.  A narrow scarf from the print acts as a collar to the jacket and ties loosely in front, fastened with a magnetic brooch.  The scarf is hand fringed.  The magnetic brooch can be used with the sheath alone or on the jacket.

This fashion fits Silkstone Barbie, Vintage Barbie, Victoire Roux, FR2 and Nu Face

Met Ball Mannequin Maven Dressed Doll

I am pleased to present this stunning one-of-a-kind collaboration between Bellissima Couture and Maryann Roy of Welcome Home.  Met Ball was originally a Happy Go Lightly Silkstone who Maryann transformed into an alluring, vintage beauty.  Her red hair is swept up and highlighted by a pale yellow silk ribbon.  Her eye shadow is classic blue, her lips a rosy coral.  She is wearing an extravagant gown in plaid silk taffeta.  The large bell skirt floats like it is made of air, with layers of turquoise blue tulle underneath for volume.  The bodice is close fitting and dropped waist.  A band of the plaid silk creates a halter neckline that finishes in back with a bow and and fringed sash detail.  White satin opera gloves with a pearl button detail cover her slender arms.  In her right hand she holds a tiny nosegay of vintage flocked flowers with trailing yellow silk ribbons.

Sheath Suit in Liberty of London Pepper

Part of Liberty of London’s classic range, Pepper was first designed by the Jack Prince Studio in 1974 and has been a classic since 1979.  It comes in a wide variety of color combinations, including this one in shades of purple.  The suit features a slim sheath in orchid silk noil for the skirt and the Pepper print for the boat necked bodice.  A wide band of the print defines the waist.  The matching jacket is boxy in shape with bracelet length sleeves.  The jacket is also made from orchid silk noil and is fully lined in the Pepper print.  A narrow scarf in the print forms a collar for the jacket and then fastens in front with the aid of a magnetic brooch in shades of purple.  The scarf is hand fringed.  The brooch is versatile and can be worn with the jacket or with the sheath by itself.

OOAK DOLL FESTIVAL IN NYC

I just returned from a wonderful week in New York City attending the first ever OOAK Doll Festival.  This event was organized by Rocky Schmidt, Mario and Gianni of Magia 2000, and Nik and Marie of Ninimomo.  The theme of the convention was a celebration of the collectors and creators of one of a kind dolls, clothes, and miniatures.  Both Rebecca Berry of Inside the Fashion Doll Studio, and Rogier Corbeau of Dutch Fashion Doll World, have been covering this event on their blogs, so I wanted to refer you there for all the best coverage and photos.  Just follow the links on their names above.

I have a few pieces from the show available that I will be listing over the next couple of days, including a doll, so stay tuned.

Sea Spray Party Dress

Pale sea foam green is overlaid with an exquisite silver French lace in this lovely party dress.  The strapless, dropped waist bodice is made from silvery green silk covered in silver lace.  A band of sea foam green silk decorates the top of the bodice along with a poof of aqua tulle and vintage blue crystal rosette.  The full skirt has 8 layers of aqua tulle with a silver eyelash lace over skirt.  Subtle, elegant, and feminine.

Bella Primavera Party Dress

As soft and delicate as the first breath of spring, this tulle party dress is a true harbinger of the season.  The dropped waist bodice is made from pale pink silk with a wrap of shimmery pink tulle, fastened with colored flowers (the wrap slips easily over the doll’s head).  The bubble skirt is made of layers of pink shimmer tulle with flowers floating between them.  A unique and feminine party dress.
