Leaves of Gold II for Barbie, Poppy Parker, and Victoire Roux

I love to browse through photos of vintage sewing patterns on Etsy, eBay, and Pinterest. Recently, I ran across a vintage Vogue pattern from around 1958. The pattern featured a couple different wraps. One was especially unusual because it featured short puffed sleeves. I played around a bit and was able to figure out how to make a miniature version of the wrap.

I decided to make a strapless dress to go underneath to really accentuate the lines of the wrap. And what better fabric to use than the vintage remnant of embroidered dupioni silk I found on eBay. I chose a princess seamed dress so I could really show off the embroidery. Available now in my Etsy shop.
