“First Kiss of Spring” for Gene Marshall and friends

It’s Spring 1959.  Gene, Ivy and Violet have been asked to model a fresh new frock in Sophisticate Sewing Patterns new catalog.  As someone who always loves to sew in what spare time she has, Gene was quick to jump at the chance.  And it wasn’t hard to convince her best gal pals to join her in the photo shoot. As an added plus,  the dress was designed by one of her favorite designers, Mr. Nowell.  But what will Madra think, when she finds out that she hasn’t been asked to join them?  No worries.  Gene has been assured by the designer himself that he wil have a design specially in mind for her to model.

This perfect dress for a Spring afternoon is fashioned of a floral cotton print in various colors.  The waist is cinched with a coordinating satin sash.  The bodice of the dress is fully lined, while the full skirt has professionally finished seams and hemline.  Accessories include white cotton petticoat with lace trim, white wrist gloves and pearl earrings.  From a non smoking home.  This is for the ensemble only.  Doll and shoes are not included.  Click on photos for a larger view.







Blue silk dress with hand beaded neckline, for Tonner 16″ fashion dolls.

This is a sample dress that I am offering.  It will fit any Tonner dolls with the 16″ Tyler Wentworth body. The dress is fashioned of a dusty blue dupioni silk, with a heavily beaded neckline that features glass beads in shades of periwinkle blue, gold and turquoise. Since the beading is done by hand, there are a few spots here and there on the underside where the needle has slipped through the lining. The drop waist bodice is fully lined.  The full skirt has a professionally finished back seam and hemline. From a non smoking home.  The is for the dress only.  Doll and shoes not included.  Click on photos for a larger view.

The semi-gathered skirt features a hobble shaping from the waist on down. Dress is fully lined in pale pink. Accessories that complete her look are pale pink gloves, a jewelry suit of faux pearls and glass beads, and a silk brocade evening bag.
