*~Patchouli~*

Made for Mari 31.5" Himstedt by CarlaC


Beautiful Mari is modeling "Patchouli," a one-of-a-kind Eastern-inspired set made of a unique combination of sumptuous fabrics and rich trims.  This outfit was specially created to fit Mari and her friends of similar size.   


Mari's empire-waisted top is made from a rich eggplant-colored panne stretch velvet.  It features an applique made of a genuine antique sari border with beautiful gold zari work.   The flared sleeves are trimmed with wool fiber, as are the waistline and hem of the shirt.   


Mari's pants are made of a woven wool fabric with a wonderful natty texture.  The pants are fully lined and have an elastic waist.  The cuffs of the pants are edged with bands of purple velvet. 


The golden design of the sari applique is embellished with glass beads. For added dimension, the border of the applique is trimmed with a deep purple chenille fiber and framed with light purple seed beads.   


The two front pockets are also trimmed with the sari border, chenille fiber, and beads.  Shiny glass beads dangle from fibers attached in a bow at the waistline.


Mari's beret-style hat is made from the natty wool and is fully lined.  The band is trimmed with the chenille fiber and adorned with a bow fashioned from a cluster of fibers.  There is a sparkly beaded flower in the center of the bow.
