Deboxed & displayed.

Posted by helen on May 20, 2012

Afternoon suit is out of her box, from suit to evening gown:

 she set up a Poker Date,  now she is on her way to Midge & Allen’s house to  play Poker Games with them.

The street theme is Soho, NYC, I used to work in one of these buildings.  our office was between “Eileen Fisher” and “Anthropologie”.

This Poker Dress killed a  piece of very nice  silk fabric.  the fabric is so delicate,  my toy-like sewing machine refused to cooperate, so I had to hand-stitch pieces together,  I cant tell you how much work I have put on– but I can say: I’ll never want to make a deplicate— no more patience left for it.

    So Afternoon Suit is a fun girl after all. Once she is out of that stiff suit she is out on the town in style! What a great ensemble. Very nice work. Playful and sophisticated!

    Hi Aeclea, welcome to become a barbie collector. You only collect silkstones?

      Hi Timothy,
      Only have on silkstone-type: Grace Kelly from Rear Window. I inherited my friend’s 1950’s Barbies, and have a lot of “rescue barbies” from thrift stores. I am mostly a liddle kiddle collector (have nearly all–only one NRFB, tho 😦
