Fashion Doll Forum

We all have so many wonderful dresses. I looked through mine recently and discovered that there are some dresses I will always like, no matter how many new I make. There is this one, I made it in 2013 and it seems to be perfect.

What about you? Share with all of us, what dress you have in your collection that is your personal favourite. It can be done by you, or bought. No matter! 

Here is my example of Charleze, wearing the little white dress.

How do you like it?

  • oh my doll!! FDF I could have spent hour in this store !! I am so unfortunate he with only a little  fabric store with quite few actualy, some nice lace but not a lot of very original stuff! and almost no silk at all. I got to Seville some time to time and there is over there a very nice place I can stay hours just looking around . I love fabric  lace, silk, damas , etc etc !!!

    Thank you Lily. For years there was a store just off Place Vendome, called Maupio, where you could buy haute couture remnants. Sadly, the owner retired and closed the store. This lace is exceptional......it was from an Emanuel Ungaro collection!!!!

    I've made LOTS of clothes, since I made this silver lace dress. And yet, it remains my all time favorite. Originally fitted on a Barbie S.I.S, it looks just as fabulous on a FR Jordan doll!

  • Girls, you are so much fun!

  • That is REALLY a wonderful dress, Lily. I am very aware that costumes are quite a challenge and I think you did a great job with your interpretation of the original garment. I do visit your blog from time to time and find it quite fascinating.

    I am interested since a long time by the costume history and the painting "les adieux" by Moreau le jeune was one of my favorite 

    when I was sewing for Barbie I felt I had to make this dress and even now that I do not have it anymore this dress is still my all time favorite, (made in 1997)

    It took me weeks to do it. I used no patterns  as they where none available in this time (as fare as I knew it)I could not afford silk, so it was made in green light satin.(like lining stuff) the flower panel are printed cotton embroidered with silk ribbons.

    What cannot be seen here, are the 2 petticoats and the articulated "paniers" that hold the skirt

    I loved this dress and was certainly not ready to sale it, even if it was present on my booth at divers doll shows. but finally I let it go to a lovely lady whom I hope loved it as much as I did

    I was using in this time second hand stores Barbies and I will have no idea what Barbie this can be ?

    you still can see in my blog, all the Barbie outfits "history" of the past years, when I was present a divers dolls /craft shows

    This is a magnificent job, Lilly! Thank you for sharing it with us! It's also a very difficult style to make, but you mastered it. As you may know, I also sometimes make historic dresses:

  • Hi Lilly, this dress is fabolous, all the details and care you put in it are amazing. It must have been extremely difficult to part with it. 

    Thanks for the link, I'm going to go through everything!!!
