Art Deco Dress in Pale Pink Silk

Posted on

I have been experimenting with different styles for this summer’s Barbie Convention, whose theme is the 1920s. This lovely style is in silk cut on the bias as was customary in dresses of the period. A wide band in Liberty of London “Mitsi” sits low on the hips and is highlighted with beads. The skirt lies in pleats in the front and hangs in a handkerchief hem.

This fashion fits most 1/6 scale fashion dolls

Nancy’s Garden in Pansies, Hydrangeas, Violets, and Lilies

Posted on

Five years ago, after losing my mother, I created a series of flower gowns in her memory. They’ve been popping up in my memories lately, so I thought I would bring them back for a brief encore.

The gowns are based on dresses by the Romanian design duo Chotronette and consist of a lavish tulle skirt encasing flowers, leaves, and Swarovski crystals.

This particular gown features pansies, violets, hydrangeas, lilies, and leaves, encased in dark purple tulle. The bodice is an iridescent plum colored silk. A hand dyed silk ribbon is tied at the waist.

This fashion fits Silkstone Barbie, Poppy Parker, NuFace, and FR2.

A Ukrainian Garden Coat Ensemble

Posted on

Like so many of us, I have been deeply shaken by the events unfolding in the Ukraine in the last week. Feeling helpless to do much, I nevertheless find myself inspired by the people, their symbolic colors, their national symbols. Creating doll fashions is how I express myself, so over the next few days I will be creating fashions inspired by the Ukraine. 15% of the proceeds from these special fashions will be donated to a support agency that benefits the relief efforts in the Ukraine.

This ensemble is created from a beautiful new print from Rifle Paper Company in shades of blue with pops of yellow, paired with lemon zinger silk dupioni. The coat is fully lined in yellow silk and sports yellow buttons. The matching party dress is made of the same yellow silk, with layers of white tulle to give volume to the skirt.

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

The full skirt is given additional volume from layers of spring green tulle. A sunny yellow silk bow decorates the bust. Included is a beautifully detailed pot of delicate daffodils.
