Liberty of London Party Dress in “Lodden”

Posted on

Part of Liberty of London’s Classic Tana Lawn range, Lodden, designed by William Morris in 1884, features a melange of lotuses, florals and embellished vines.  The colors remind me of an array of Gelato.  The perfect party dress for Spring, the full skirt has many layers of lemon yellow sparkle tulle.  A lemon silk band and bow detail define the waist.

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

Liberty of London Floral Bubble Dress

Fashionably Floral Silkstone arrived today and, as is customary, she got a new dress.  The tiny floral of the Liberty of London fabric is in shades of rose, bright pink, lavender, and lilac.  The dropped waist bodice has a pleated band of lilac silk that defines the bust and then goes over the shoulders forming straps.

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

Rockabilly Wiggle Dress in Strawberry and Cherry

Posted on

This lovely fabric got so much love in the Rockabilly party dress, that I made it in the new wiggle style as well. But I continue to modify this pattern as I go.  This time, I used my tried and true strapless sheath, which is all one piece, instead of a bodice and a skirt.  I think this gives the wiggle dress a cleaner, more form fitting line.  I also used red silk for the pleated bust band.  The dress is fully lined in black silk.

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

Rockabilly Wiggle Dress

Posted on

Using the same bodice and strap pattern as the Rockabilly party dress, this sheath has the close fitting pencil skirt of a wiggle dress.  The fabric is white cotton with turquoise polka dots.  There is just a hint of stretch in the fabric, resulting in a nice fit.  Fully lined in white silk.

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