Evening Primrose for Barbie and Victoire Roux

I found this gorgeous antique lace on Etsy and just had to buy some! The vibrant flowers are embroidered over a black tulle base. I layered the lace over black Dupioni silk to make the flowers pop and then made the bodice from contrasting rose colored silk. Dress available now in my Etsy shop.

Antique Roses for Barbie, Poppy Parker, and Victoire Roux

Several months ago, I found this gorgeous vintage embroidered net lace. I didn’t know what I was going to make from it, but I knew it would come to me. Then I found this iridescent rose gold dupioni silk that coordinates beautifully. So I made a new bodice pattern with one shoulder and a bow, and layered the lace over the silk fabric for the skirt. This fashion available now in my Etsy shop.
