Tweed Suit

Posted by helen on May 28, 2017

Like many others, I have a soft spot for Redhead dolls, So Miss Tweed comes home.

however, I dislike her “Tweed Suit”,  especially hate the cutaway at the front of the jacket. it supposed to be a double breasted jacket,  but the front panels are not designed to be so,  that’s why the cutaway & the button placements are not centered– its a design defect.  the good thing is that  all the buttons are in black, they are not very visible, many collectors “adore” her suit, that’s good enough for Mattel.
the dress is made of 2 different kinds of fabrics,  same way as the “Blue city chic” doll’s dress. the top is made of light weighted fabric,  the skirt is made of  stiff fabric.  they don’t go together, but with Barbie, everything goes… “Imagine the impossible, you can do anything”!

The outfits have no lining, the jacket & skirt have a clear layer of iron-on vinyl backing, it feels very stiff & hard — Hey, think about the bright side, it keeps in shape.

The cutaway at the front is a strange but not smart design:

I think she looks better in Green.    I have not made any thing for poseable Silkstone lately,  every piece you see here  is made for  older silkstone dolls that have straight body,   it does not suit her the best, but the colors are right  for her:

Go Green:

Green Stripes:

Polka dots

Pussy Bow

Cocktail:

Gal on the Go

Black & Yellow

Posted by helen on May 13, 2017

black and yellow,  what an unexpected & daring color combination

Yellow isn’t a popular color, but really,  it all depends who is wearing it

Jacqueline Kennedy wore this black yellow  evening dress  for a White House state dinner honoring  President Manuel Prado of Peru  in 1961.

Blue Chiffon Gown

Posted by helen on May 8, 2017

Instead of waiting for  Mattel’s Chiffon Gown,  I’m singing my own blues–,

the gown looks better on Classic Silkstone dolls than the Poseable Dolls.

Here is a poseable doll:

the color & style make this gown a typical Bridesmaid Dress. so, here goes… the Wedding Crasher. lol
