Little Darlings, City Girl and Country Girl...

Jiyoon gets to wear the Mondrian dress first here in Dolltown...


Sometimes it's just who is closest to the door when the package arrives.

But I must say that I thought of Jiyoon right away when I saw this adorable Mondrian-inspired dress by Alison Austin on a lovely Facebook group I belong to.

I didn't want to let this creative artsy dress slip away, so after pointedly ignoring the bid for a couple of days I melted, bid, and won (as they say). 

In for a penny...then I chose a color combo for Alison's ruffle style dress and pinafore.... Two dresses, save on shipping. Makes sense right?

Hey Maggie! Come here a minute!

They heard the knock at the door...and Maggie and Jiyoon followed me right out to the porch. Much to the surprise of our intrepid deliverer. The package didn't even make it into the house! Get the scissors! the girls said, jumping up and down in excitement...

Sleek, chic, geometric, a throwback to 60's art style...

Here is just the pinafore from the ruffled dress. This can work!

Warm, sweet, ruffled, a throwback to another time...

I just added the hair ribbon to the bodice, since it is a little low.

And a third Alison Austin style shows her creative range...

And the under dress is just adorable. I love the sleeves! And the versatility!

    Thanks Sharon!
    I really love these different fashions. Whichever one I am looking at is my fav... haha Can't beat that versatile pretty dress...but how striking is that Mondrian! Got my friend nostalgically talking about her Mary Quant dress when she was young. lol

    These are just tooooooooooooooo adorable!!!! That Mondrian dress is perfect on Jiyoon! The pinafore is really lovely and looks quite vintage. The length is the same as the dresses worn by small children in France. But I think its the colors that give it an old-fashioned feeling. Your choice of the doll for it is perfect. She has just the right coloring. April

    Hey Miss Fashion Doll Stylist!
    So glad you like these. I think they are adorable, in such different ways!
    Those fashionable little French children!
    Yes, that Maggie was made for these warm colours!
    But I do have other Little Darlings clamouring for a try on. For both outfits. Okay, okay. We'll get to you!
    But first, a fashion shoot for my version of fashion dolls, our Tonner Ellowynes. They are dressed, shoes on. And we are heading outside into the natural light and hoping the rain holds off!
    Talk soon!
