From Katherine, our designer-
"The muse for this dress was Rockwell Devilled, the famous pinup model. Top left photo done by the remarkable talent at Le Mew Studios).
Rockwell LOVES the original Barbie Doll and so do I. I also love the vintage Barbie's, "Solo in the Spotlight"; hence this dress.
We completely built a completely custom dress form to duplicate Rockwell's EVERY curve. That is what this dress requires. At least one toile will be sent during the fitting process, so the dress can only be made custom. Our prototype, seen here, was made from sour own locally hand-woven, silver-kissed cotton.
While we dyed the fabric for Rockwell's dress gold-kissed peach- one of her favorite colors- the dress can be made in white kissed with silver or gold and dyed any medium to pastel color.
If you look closely, the "polka dots" are actually tiny individual roses made from ribbon.
The buttons down the back are covered buttons with loops and completely functional. There are no shortcuts or concessions; this is a movie star fit made with pure vintage
The bows here are bias-cut with couture construction,made of silk satin or silk chiffon.
Heavy tulle is required under the lower skirt to support.
It can be ordered sleek as pictured with no buttons, bows or roses or customized using your imagination, referencing the photos we have included here.
