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.

Christmas Party for Barbie and Victoire Roux
