Summer Magic

I think Steven Frasier is amazing.  I believe I have almost every couture outfit Dressmaker Details has ever produced.  I love his aesthetic and the fact that he fits his clothing to fit both the more voluptuous Fashion Royalty and the slimmer Barbie Silkstone form.   I also appreciate the details he puts into his product.  If you are buying a couture outfit, you will  get the jewelry, purse,gloves, nylons and shoes to go with it.  He typically designs a special couture outfit for the National Barbie Doll Collectors Convention each year.  It is something I look forward to every convention.  This year, his design was called “Summer Magic” and indeed it is.  I absolutely adore this creation…so frothy and feminine.  It also fits in with my collection perfectly.  It was very hard to find a model to wear this lovely creation.  There were simply too many choices.  I wanted a model who would showcase the femininity of this gown and really enhance the beautiful soft blue of it’s fabric.  I finally settled on High Tea and Savories because I just love the haughty high fashion look of this lady.  Her soft makeup palette makes her a favorite of mine when I have an uber feminine gown.  I also felt the beautiful blue of her eyes would be complimented by the gorgeous color of this gown.

The details of this gown are worth the purchase alone.  The dress has little sequins and beads sewn into the soft tulle.  The bracelet is phenomenal.  I had trouble closing it around my models wrist so I added a small round silver link and it works perfectly now.   If you don’t already use these, a pair of bullnose curved pliers are a must when it comes to putting jewelry on these diminutive divas.
