Barbie Dresses in Stripes

Just before we moved to our new boutique we were working on a mini collection of 1950s Barbie inspired dresses.

Here are the first two results as the Sindi and Humbug designs.

The Sindi Dress is cut with a full pleated skirt with fitted shell bodice and low scoop back. Grey velvet ribbon stripes pattern the silk dress with a luxurious texture. Gorgeous for Summer and Winter parties alike.

The Humbug dress is pure cocktail hour with a draped strapless bodice and asymmetrical stripes sweeping across the body to the full puff ball drape. The black velvet stripes were appliqued to the silk satin and then draped to the dress by hand. A striking piece for parties and events!
