Nancy’s Garden in Exotic Zinnias

Posted on

The eleventh gown in a series honoring my mother Nancy and her love of flowers.  I have always considered zinnias the cheerful, happy flowers of any garden.  They come in bright, tropical colors and are related to daisies and sunflowers.  The skirt of this gown is in shades of bright pink and tangerine orange tulle in alternating layers.  Encased in the tulle are bright pink and orange zinnias with touches of gold.  A row of light green leaves forms the bases and tiny orange and pink flowers are scattered around, along with pink Swarovski crystals for sparkle.  The strapless, peplum shaped bodice is made from an exotic iridescent silk that mixes orange with dark purple for a beautiful shimmer.  A hand painted silk ribbon in pink and orange ties at the waist.

This fashion fits most 1/6 scale fashion dolls, although the length will vary depending on the doll.

Hidden Kitty Day Dress

Cats love to hide, and these are no exception.  From the same Japanese fabric company as the Tuxedo cat print, this print depicts cats tucked behind pillows or hiding under blankets.  The colors are cream, magenta, rose, and green, all highlighted with gold.  The bodice is boat necked with a full skirt.  A narrow belt of magenta silk with a gold buckle adds interest to the waist.
