I had about half of a vintage Yves Saint Laurent handkerchief left in my stash, when I received a request for step by step photos of how to make the bodice for my Fabulous Fifties dress pattern. So I figured, why not use up the rest of that hankie? And to make it even more interesting, I made a new skirt pattern to go with it. Dress available now in my Etsy shop.
I haven’t used my flower shop set in a while because I have to lug my photography studio lights from one room to another (since the flower shop is too large to fit in my doll room). So I saved myself some trouble by only moving one light, instead of both, which made for some nice dramatic lighting.
I haven’t been posting much lately, but lest you think I’ve been slacking off, let me assure you I’ve been busy! I’m working on a series of dresses for a custom order. Here are the dresses I’ve completed so far (still a couple more to go).
This dress is hand sewn from a vintage Yves Saint Laurent handkerchief. The gorgeous blue plaid is accented with an intricate gold and red border that I did my best to show off in this strapless dress and capelet. Available now in my Etsy shop.
I finally got around to making my first Christmas dress of the season. Available now in my Etsy shop.
I just published a new sewing pattern for Barbie and friends. Available now in my Etsy shop.
My stash of vintage petit point and embroidered hankies has been calling my name. Sometimes, the hankie design is simply too small to use in a Barbie fashion, or the hankie has age marks or damage that would prevent me from using the entire thing. But I can’t bear to waste the lovely embroidery, so Barbie size pillows are the perfect solution. I’ve just posted this new collection in my Etsy shop.
This vintage Lancetti handkerchief incorporates some of my favorite shades of blue and green. Skirt and blouse set available now in my Etsy shop.
Here’s dress number 2 from the vintage Yves Saint Laurent handkerchief. Available now in my Etsy shop.
