Rose Gold Cocktail Ensemble

Another favorite brocade from my stash, this one is hot pink woven with gold, resulting in an overall warm, golden shimmer.  The fabric, which is pure silk brocade from India, is woven with a pattern of paisley and leaves.  The form-fitting strapless sheath dress has a sweetheart neckline.  The matching bolero jacket has a richly beaded neckline in alternating stripes of rose pink and gold beads.

This fashion fits Victoire Roux, Silkstone Barbie, and FR2 dolls.

Vineyard Cocktail Ensemble

An unusual but striking combination of colors makes up this cocktail ensemble.  The fabric is a silk brocade of green vines twining on a wine colored background.  The two colors woven together create a beautiful iridescent shimmer.  The strapless sheath is decorated with an oversized bow at the hip in burgundy metallic silk organza.  The cropped bolero jacket is made from the reverse of the sheath fabric and is fully lined in bottle green silk.  A richly beaded collar at the neckline adds sparkle.  A lovely ensemble for wine season!

Autumn Sheath Set

As summer turns to fall, shades of copper and gold become more prominent in the landscape.  This always inspires me to reach for these colors when I am designing.  This sheath and jacket set is made from a beautiful silk brocade in these colors.  The sheath has a coppery brown silk sash and bow with fringed edges.  A bolero jacket with a collar of gold beads adds sparkle.

Classic Suit

Silk tussah* in neutral tones of cream, beige, and navy makes up this classic suit with a nipped in waist and peplum.  A navy blue silk taffeta bow belt defines the waist and an Eiffel Tower brooch decorates the collar.  A navy silk bow hat is the finishing touch.

This fashion fits Silkstone Barbie, Victoire Roux, Poppy Parker, and FR2 dolls.

*Silk tussah is made from the fiber produced by wild silk worms and has a wonderful nubby texture.  It is naturally slubbed and may have irregular pieces.  These irregularities are part of the fabric’s natural beauty and should not be considered flaws.
