Silk Coat and Sheath Dress for Gene Marshall

New for Spring 2016, Gene and her friends will look chic wearing this ensemble that consists of a sheath dress and topper coat, constructed of fully lined silks.  The gingham silk dress features classic styling, cinched with a solid color belt at the waist.  The topper coat is the same color as the belt, and features full length turned back lapels.  Accessories include day gloves and pearl drop earrings.  The style of this ensemble is inspired by the styles of the late 1950s and early 1960s.   Doll and shoes are not included.  From a non smoking environment.

Will fit all three editions of Gene dolls that have been produced (Ashton Drake, Integrity and JamieShow)

I have one of each of three colors available at this time:  Dark Coral, Marine Blue and Pale Sage.

“Late Night Cocktails” for 16″ Marley Wentworth

“Late Night Cocktails” is my first official design for Tonner Doll Company’s new 16″ Marley Wentworth doll.  Much like her sister Tyler, she is proving to be quite the muse for me.  This ensemble is something I picture Marley wearing out for a night at the theater, and then for drinks afterwards.  Of course, with some charming young gentleman.

The ensemble consists of a cocktail dress fashioned of a burgundy silk dupioni, with a beautifully embroidered lace overskirt.  The dress has a fully lined bodice, and the skirt has professionally finished seams.  Over her dress, she wears an olive green silk dupioni coat to ward off the chill in the air.  The coat has turn back full length lapels, and is fully lined.  Her accessories include burgundy and silver drop earrings, and a pink satin purse that is hand beaded.  Doll and shoes are not included.  From a non smoking environment.

This ensemble will fit Tonner dolls that have the “Chic” body style.  It will also fit dolls with the “Antoinette” body, but will be a tiny bit larger in the busty and shoulders.


I will accept PayPal as payment for this design.  If interested, please contact me at:

Thank you so much.

“Catalina Vacation” for Gene Marshall and friends

A complete weekend vacation wardrobe to fit Gene Marshall or any of her gal pals!

Gene is invited to producer Ruben Lillienthal’s Catalina Island beach home, for a weekend of sun and fun, along with fellow stars Ivy and Trent.  First, Gene meets Ivy at a seaside café for lunch, wearing a sunny ensemble of blue and white top, white skirt and red waist sash.  She chooses red, blue and gold jewelry to finish the look.  A little later, she joins Trent and Ivy on Ruben’s yacht, where SURPRISE!, the “top” is really a bathing suit.  She accessorizes with a matching cover-up, a sun hat to keep the rays from burning that beautiful face, and a large beach tote to carry all necessities.

This ensemble includes bathing suit, matching cover-up jacket, sun hat, large tote bag, white skirt, red waist sash and matching jewelry suite.  Constructed of cotton, linen and silk fabrics, and pieces have full lining.  The striped trim on the tote bag and hat is vintage trimming from the 1960s.  Doll and shoes not included.  From a non smoking environment.  Clothing will fit all Gene dolls from Ashton Drake, Integrity Toys and JamieShow dolls.   JamieShow “White Orchid” Gene is modeling in the photos.
