Lauren Rose for Barbie and friends

This is my second dress from this Ralph Lauren handkerchief. The first dress sold before I could get it posted here, but I had a lot of border left that I paired with pink silk to make this dress.

And the sewing pattern from the first dress is available now as well.

GAW Barbie Convention preview

I’ve been packing all day and I’m ready to head to the GAW Barbie Convention in Livonia, MI, tomorrow after lunch. Here’s a sneak peek at some of the fashions I’m taking with me. My collection this year features shades of blue, pink, and purple and is made from silks, lace, vintage printed and embroidered handkerchiefs, and Liberty of London Tana Lawn. Every dress comes with a coordinating hat or fascinator. I also have about 100 hats made in a variety of colors, and a variety of miniatures. Hope to see some of you there!

Annalise for Barbie and friends

I know I haven’t been posting many dresses lately, but I think I’ve finished my spring collection to debut at the GAW Barbie convention, so now it’s on to dresses for everyone else! I happened to have two identical Jean D’Orly handkerchiefs, so I decided to make a blouse and skirt set. I love the scale of this print … it’s so delicate. Available now in my Etsy shop.
