Vintage Dior for Barbie, Poppy Parker, and Victoire Roux

I’m having so much fun replicating this vintage Dior dress in 1/6 scale, I can’t seem to stop! This time I used a dupioni silk that was named dusty lavender, but it looks more pinky mauve to me. Now available in my Etsy shop.

Vintage Dior for Barbie and Victoire Roux

I made another copy of the vintage Dior dress, this time in a pale french blue tissue taffeta. I had a fat 1/8 of a yard of this silk fabric and had just one little scrap left over. This is a custom order that is already spoken for. If you’d like a similar dress, just let me know.

Orange Blossoms for Barbie & Victoire Roux

I found this vintage hand-embroidered a while ago and fell in love with the soft color palette. Then I ran across a lovely peach linen hankie that matched perfectly. So after much internal debate, I decided a bubble skirt would best show off the circular design of the embroidery. The plain color bodice draws out the peach embroidery on the flowers. A rhinestone brooch and ultrasuede belt with rhinestone buckle complete the look. Available now in my Etsy shop.

Custom order

This week I’ve been working on a custom order. The client sent me a Coach scarf and a bandana as well as pictures of the fashions she wanted created. Here is the result.

Merry Christmas, and happy wedding …

Merry Christmas one and all. I hope you’ve all had a wonderful day full of family, friends, and love.

I spent the day with family, and so now I can finally show you a Christmas present I worked on this fall.

My niece is getting married in June, so I decided to make her a wedding dress, Barbie size, which may or may not look exactly like her wedding dress. I made a mini bouquet to replicate the flowers that will be in her bouquet. And because she absolutely loves horses, I found a Barbie horse and carriage to display with Barbie and Ken. They’re planning to display the grouping at the wedding.
