Winter Violets for Silkstone Barbie & Victoire Roux

This fashion was sewn entirely by hand from a rare round hankie that I found in an antique shop in California this fall. Dress is fastened with purple buttons over metal snaps. Includes ultrasuede belt with rhinestone buckle and magnetic rhinestone brooch that was made from a vintage earring a friend gave me. Available now in my Etsy shop.

Olive Blush for Silkstone Barbie & Victoire Roux

I found this unusual sheer silk hankie on eBay. It’s hand embroidered in pastel shades of blush, peach, blue, and olive silk threads. I lined it in blush fabric to show off the embroidery.

I had a bit of a mishap with the bodice, and had to remake it. By happy accident, I had some olive dupioni silk that matched beautifully. So I remade the bodice and ended up liking the dress even more.

Now available in my Etsy shop.

Ms. Claus for Barbie & Victoire Roux

This lovely fashion features a fitted sheath dress with scoop neck, cap sleeves, ruffled hem and ultrasuede belt with rhinestone buckle. A coordinating capelet keeps off the chill while upping the style factor. A magnetic brooch adorns the collar.

It’s always a challenge to just use the border of a hankie, but with some clever seaming, it can be done. And it helps when you have a coordinating plain color hankie to use for the capelet.

I’ve included an extra photo so you can see my growing collection of mini Santas.

Sorry, but this fashion is already on hold for someone … I couldn’t type this post fast enough!
