Mrs. Claus for Barbie & Victoire Roux

If you’re still looking for a Christmas dress for your favorite doll, a dress that was on hold is now available.



Custom dresses

A customer sent me two gorgeous hankies to make into custom dresses. Yesterday, I worked on dress number one. It’s a large linen hankie with a freeform paisley print in shades of green, blue, and yellow. Because of the size of the hankie, I was able to do a long skirt with flounced hem. I happened to have some leftover yellow dupioni silk that matched perfectly, so I used that for the waistband, bow, and wrap. Makes me think of spring.


White Christmas for Barbie & Victoire Roux

I bought this gorgeous holly berry linen hankie at the Grand Bazaar in NYC about this time last year from an older lady who was selling her collection of vintage hankies. Because it’s an allover print instead of just an elaborate border print, the design possibilities were limitless. In other words, I’ve debated which pattern to use for this outfit for roughly a year! Now available in my Etsy shop.
