Periwinkle Prose for Barbie and friends

This vintage Yves Saint Laurent handkerchief features soft shades of periwinkle and aqua, which makes for the perfect romantic dress. I used my Boat Neck Sheath pattern for the bodice and Summer of ’57 pattern for the skirt, with some bows added at the hips. Available now in my Etsy shop.

Purple Roses for Barbie and friends

I had about half of a vintage Yves Saint Laurent handkerchief left in my stash, when I received a request for step by step photos of how to make the bodice for my Fabulous Fifties dress pattern. So I figured, why not use up the rest of that hankie? And to make it even more interesting, I made a new skirt pattern to go with it. Dress available now in my Etsy shop.

I haven’t used my flower shop set in a while because I have to lug my photography studio lights from one room to another (since the flower shop is too large to fit in my doll room). So I saved myself some trouble by only moving one light, instead of both, which made for some nice dramatic lighting.
