Yay, first new doll dress of the year! My last dolly clothing squee was Addy's brown floral suit waaaay back last October!
Anyways, JoniLynn of Kindred Thread makes THE most adorable '50s style outfits. Being someone who loves fantastically made doll clothes and '50s styles, I'm always bowled over by the fantasticness of her things. But the Vintage Valentine dress from the February release was so cute I literally could not pass it up! (Well, it's technically my Valentine's Day present from my understanding mother, but she's letting me have it early so I don't pass out from anticipation or something. =P)
My #4, Lucy, is the lucky model of this fab dress. She's not really a dress type gal, but she is a lover of all things vintage and cute, so it wasn't hard to get her to agree to model this one. ;)
This is approximately the cutest dress ever. =D
This dress looks so perfect on Lucy Goosey.
Look how happy she looks. =) Of course, I can never let her see JoniLynn's pics on their site... she'll want the cat's eye glasses (which would probably look fab on her, now that I think of it...)
From behind. You can't see it because of her hair, but the dress closes with lovely little vintage looking mother of pearl type buttons. Forgive the sloppiness of that ribbon bow... there was a cat tugging on it... *sigh*
Close up of the fabric of the skirt. The fabric is the sweetest print... perfect for a sweet little girl to wear to a Valentine party. And I also love the fullness of the skirt. I've been meaning to order one of those adorable fluffy flouncy petticoats they make... would have made this dress even cuter!
Close up on the bodice. Adorable rickrack and yummy darts. I love the neckline as well... I like that's a bit scoopy but doesn't plunge.
