Sheath Dress in Autumnal Asian Woodblock Print

Posted on

I have had this small scrap of cotton fabric in my stash for many years and had just enough to make a sheath dress.  It is a rustic Asian woodblock print in shades of red, gold, and orange on a black ground, perfect for the Autumn months.  The bodice is off the shoulder with a dramatic plunging neckline.  The waist is defined by a pleated, deep orange silk cummerbund.

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

As summer winds down, roses are blooming in abundance here in the Rose City.  This delicate print from Liberty called “Elizabeth” is scattered with pink roses and tiny blue Forget Me Nots, and is as fresh as a summer day.  The strapless dropped waist bodice has a contrasting band of rose pink with a bow at the top.  The skirt is given volume from layers of pale pink tulle.  A jacket of white embroidered tulle with chiffon roses is fully lined in white organza and sports rose pink pearls as buttons.

This fashion fits most 1/6 scale fashion dolls.

This is the second fashion in the Chanel series.  Poppy models a pure white ensemble inspired by a look in the Chanel Fall 2015 collection.  The fabric is a cotton pique with a subtle woven diamond pattern.  The cropped, boxy jacket has elbow length sleeves and is fully lined in white silk.  The neckline is thickly hand beaded with a variety of pearls, beads, and crystals.  Delicate black silk ribbon ties at the neckline.  The accompanying strapless sheath is also thickly beaded along the top of the bodice.  A chiffon flower hat with a pearl center is the perfect finishing touch.

Happy Birthday, Coco

132 years ago today, a baby was born in France named Gabrielle Boheur Chanel.  She was later given the name Coco when she sang in Paris nightclubs.  Coco Chanel was credited with liberating women from the constraints of the corseted silhouette and popularizing a sportive, casual chic as the feminine standard of style in the post-World War I era.

This fashion honors Coco by incorporating three of her signature looks: the boxy suit jacket, the little black dress, and the white camellia.  The black and white color scheme and use of pearls are also part of her signature style.

The slim, strapless sheath dress is made from black silk crepe and is decorated with a simple band of white silk at the bodice.  The accompanying jacket is made from black textured raw silk and has the traditional boxy shape and bracelet length sleeves characteristic of Chanel style.  Every edge of the jacket is hand beaded in tiny pearls, as well as the traditional double slash pockets.  An extravagant fascinator style hat features the white camellia with a pouf of black millinery netting.

This fashion is a real one of a kind and will not be made again in this manifestation.

This fashion fits Silkstone Barbie and Poppy Parker.

Simonetta makes a fashion statement in a smart little suit in a fuchsia raw silk.  The bodice of the sheath dress is made from a classic Liberty print in shades of dark brown, burnt orange, coral, and fuchsia with olive green foliage.  The skirt is made from the fuchsia raw silk with a band of burnt orange and fuchsia iridescent silk at the waist.  The boxy jacket is made from the fuchsia raw silk and is fully lined with the Wiltshire print.  A pussy bow with a hand fringed tail adds a pop of print to the neck and a vintage fox head brooch decorates the collar.
