Olive My Love

Posted on

Two of my very favorite colors together; gold and olive green.  This slim fitting sheath gives the wearer a beautiful hourglass silhouette.  The fabric is a delicate cream and gold silk brocade.  An olive sparkle tulle swag sweeps from one side of the bodice to the other and is secured at the waist with an iridescent olive green silk pleated cummerbund.

Jewelry, doll and shoes are not included.  The beautiful shoes are the work of Ann Grahek.

This fashion fits Silkstone Barbie and Victoire Roux.

Tatum Sheath

Posted on

This Liberty of London print called “Tatum” is one of my favorites, especially now that the warmer weather is on its way.  Bright flowers in yellow, bright pink and coral against an aqua ground are so summery and fresh.
