Sightseeing in Portugal

Dinahs Dolls White Vintage Barbie Dress

Holiday time for Barbie and this time it’s Portugal, in fabulous sunshine. We stumbled upon this old Church and Monastery in Coimbre, and I knew it was just the most excellent spot for some photos of a new Dinah’s Dolls Original.

This dress is made from an exquisite vintage off white raw silk. The lined panelled bodice has a sweetheart neckline, and is very fitted. The skirt is full circle, also lined, and a frilled petticoat gives it a kick.

The bow is made from taffeta…I wanted a big oversized bow to emphasize the big skirt and tiny waist, and taffeta is perfect for holding a shape like this.

Aren’t the cloisters fabulous?

The backgrounds reminded me of an old film noir……. I think it would have been the perfect location for a Hitchcock style thriller!! With this dress as the perfect costume for the femme fatale of course……

So till next time….
