Autumnal ra-ra dresses.....

For some people cooler weather is quickly on it's way and although here in Spain we should have hot weather for a while yet, it got me to thinking about 'cold weather' clothes.  Being a lover of bright colours and pretty fun prints, I really think that there is more to Autumnal doll clothing than dull colours and long dresses......just because the weather might turn dreary in places, doesn't mean our dolls need to look dreary too, does it? :)

Sooo I was wondering how my ra-ra skirt sets and dresses would 'translate' into Autumn wear?  Today I made a couple of ra-ra dress sets in colours that I thought would work well for cooler weather......purple and red.  As far as I can remember, I've not made a ra-ra skirt or dress in red, so chose this colour for my first set.  The top part of the dress is bright red knit fabric and for the frills I chose  this cute cotton pique in white with red flowers, and then the underneath frill is made of fine white tulle.  The neckline is decorated to one side with a tiny bow of the same fabric as the skirt, plus a tiny white heart shaped button.  The socks with this set are red and white stripes.

The second set is purple knit with purple patterned frill and the second frill is fine white net.  The socks are purple and white stripes.

My models today are Núria (in purple) and Bailey (in red)....

These sets (one ra-ra dress and one pair of striped socks) are available to purchase at £22 per set plus postage from Spain.  Paypal only, payment as gift or personal payment preferred please).


Thanks very much for looking!

  6. I saw a newspaper headline saying September would be very warm in the UK. My girls are delighted as they haven't had a view of the sun since being shut up to hibernate two months ago and now they will be able to wear their lovely summer re-ras but, please, please add us to the list for a couple of autumnal sets... just in case.... or I'll never hear the end of it! These two sets are beautiful and your girls look wonderful in them.
