Nancy’s Garden in Fuchsia and Roses

Posted on

The fifteenth gown in a series honoring my mother Nancy and her love of flowers.  This gown is made from vibrant pink and fuchsia.  The strapless bodice has a peplum silhouette and is made from bright pink silk.  The full skirt is made from 8 layers of fuchsia tulle, enclosing roses in shades ranging from palest pink to deepest red, with glossy green rose leaves along the bottom.  Swarovski crystals add touches of sparkle, like dew drops.  A hand painted silk ribbon in shades of rose ties at the waist.

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

Nancy’s Garden in Sweet Peas

Posted on

The 14th gown in a series honoring my mother Nancy and her love of flowers.  One of my mother’s favorite flowers was the sweet pea, a lovely, delicate flower with a heavenly fragrance.  The gown has a strapless bodice with a peplum silhouette in celadon green silk taffeta.  The skirt has 8 layers of tulle, alternating celadon and pale pink to create a subtle gradation of color.  The sweet peas are front and center, in white touched with pale green and a whisper of rose pink on the edges.  Pink roses are scattered around them.  A scattering of rose and pale green Swarovski crystals add a touch of sparkle.  A hand painted rose pink silk ribbon is tied at the waist.

Nancy’s Garden in Cherry Blossoms

Posted on

The thirteenth gown in a series honoring my mother Nancy and her love of flowers.  Pink was one of my mom’s favorite colors and it is also mine, so there was bound to be more than one pink gown in the series.  The strapless bodice has a peplum silhouette and is made from pale pink silk taffeta.  The skirt is made from eight layers of tulle, alternating pale pink and rose pink.  Cream cherry blossoms touched with pale pink are encased in the layers of tulle.  Randomly placed pink Swarovski crystals add pops of sparkle.  A hand painted rose pink silk satin ribbon ties at the waist, picking up the rose tones in the skirt.

Rockabilly Dress in Mid Century Parasols

A wonderfully retro Mid Century Modern print of abstract colorful parasols in peach, chartreuse, coral, aqua, and turquoise on a grey ground.  The bodice has a sweetheart neckline and a pleated band that stretches under the bust and over the shoulders as straps.  A full skirt invites twirling.

This fashion fits Silkstone Barbie.  It may fit other dolls, but no guarantee.

Day Dress in Mischief

Posted on

One of the most adorable cat prints I have found, a mischievous kitten gets into a stash of yarn and chaos ensues.  The kitten is white on a French blue ground, with additional bright colors in the balls of yarn.  The dress has a boatnecked bodice and a full skirt given additional volume with layers of lime green tulle.  A white silk belt and yellow enamel buckle adds interest to the waist.  A crystal kitten brooch sparkles on the shoulder, but is magnetic and can be moved to other garments as well.
