~Floating Roses~

Made for Mari 31.5" Himstedt by CarlaC

Beautiful Mari is modeling "Floating Roses," a delicate, one-of-a-kind overdress and matching slipdress.  This outfit was created to fit Mari and her friends of similar size.   

Mari's overdress is made from an airy chiffon reminiscent of a beautiful vintage scarf.   It is a light aqua blue with clusters deep red roses.  The full sleeves and ruffled skirt  simply "float" out and away from the bodice.  Since the chiffon is so thin and delicate, the entire overdress is finished with french seams.

The waistline is accented with a wired rose bow pin, which can be repositioned or removed for a different look.  The bodice of the slipdress is subtly visible through the overdress, adding interest and dimension.

The slipdress is a bit longer than the overdress so that the shiny fabric peeks out a bit from beneath.  Both the slipdress and overdress fasten in the back with tiny snaps.

Wired bows look so sweet in Mari's hair.  They are attached to bobby pins and can be worn with any hairstyle.

Mari's slipdress is pretty enough to be worn alone.  It is made from a light, silky fabric that is just a touch darker than the chiffon.  The bodice of the slipdress features a placket of French pleats.  There is a ruffle at the bottom of the skirt for added fullness.
