She sent us a top, skirt and shrug/stoll. (The top is strapless. The straps in the pic were painted on. Daughter chose the doll and dressed her for our photo shoot.) It's a three piece set that can be mixed and matched. The stoll almost has a kimono look to it.
If you've ever played with Barbies growing up, or have kids who do, you'll know how hard it is to find decent clothes for them. Nowaday, it seems you have to buy the whole doll to get a pretty dress. And they usually aren't made to last long. I've even found some that wear sewn on! No fun at all. I can remember back when I was young. I traded a friend for a red velvet dress her grandmother had made for her. She didn't appreciate it like I did, I guess. And, though I no longer own it (it was aquired by my younger cousins), it was gorgeous and one of my most precious doll accessories I ever owned. This is one reason I think its so great that Carol is offering handmade doll clothes. Her craftsmanship and attention to details is spot on! In a world of disposable everything, it's nice to see items made to be cherished.
And, the really neat part is the top is reversible from metallic silver to pink satin.
Daughter loved the outfit. However, I fear this doll is now showing up all the others in their nicest evening dress. ;) If you enjoy Barbies or have a daughter, or other family member, who does, please go check her site out! It's at www.cayscreations.com. Enjoy! And, thank you so much, Carol.
