A faded Arcadia, cracking frescoes of a bygone era, forgotten melodies played in distant fields.
Summer’s past, love lost, the fragile echo of sweet nostalgia – this exquisite lace ensemble brings to mind the idyllic pastoral Bohemia glimpsed through a painter’s brush.
The two piece set consists of a delicate lace bodice with corset style lace-up back, matched by a daring fairy tale skirt: embroidered cotton, layers of ruffled lace and ribbons, rows of tiny seed beads, and a simple, though elegant train to complete this ephemeral vision.
This “Bohemian Spirit” gown will work best with dolls with a romantic spirit, alive with the heady aroma of music, art and love.
Working on an elegant evening gown, inspired by the beautiful silk dresses of the 1920's. This little preview captures the stage when this dress would make a lovely little cocktail-frock, however, I will continue to add layers of silk and lace to lengthen the piece to her ankles.
The full, gathered tutu brings to mind childhood dreams of glittering stages, dance recitals and silk ballet slippers. A dainty little bodice with lace and ribbon accents completes the feminine, dreamlike look to this ensemble, further enhanced by the soft floral pattern of the delicate cotton fabric.
This set will fit both the resin BJTales Sindy and Aerica sculpts, as well porcelain variations on the Ophelia body sculpt.
Peach organza tutu with gathered-lace waist. Coral-peach ribbons at the back add charm to this little tutu-skirt. White cotton bodice finished with organza trim and ribbons. A simple ribbon-tie at the waist helps to secure the bodice on your darling doll.
For a more haute-couture look, an extravagant flowery headdress and layers of beads livens up this ensemble.
A darling little set heavy with the promise of secrets, childhood days in the sun, and the sweetness of fruit on a warm day.
The latest muse to inspire me here at Orchid’s Designs is the otherworldly Ottilia, made by doll artist Lidia Snull, known as BJTales. This petite waif stands at 27cm tall, whilst her resin clone “Sindy” will be slightly smaller, measuring in at 23cm. The tiny creations I have been sewing for her are all slightly adjustable, and should fit both porcelain variations of the “Ophelia” body sculpt, as well as the resin “Sindy”and "Aerica" dolls.
Seeing as this doll represents a young child, our designs have adjusted in style and taste accordingly, to fit her particular age bracket and character type. Our tiny ensembles made for her try to capture the wonder of innocence, and the spirit of a curious, lively young mind.
This range of miniature couture has been designed and hand made to suit such exquisite articulated porcelain art dolls as Enchanted Dolls, BJTales, Paper White, Higher Delights and Angels Egg Dolls.
Each exclusive couture set has been fantastically created into a one-of-a-kind vision of ethereal elegance.
Orchid's Designs are breathtaking on the haughty elite, and darling for the quirky coquette.
