Hankie Couture Fashion
To Fit 16" Kish Dolls
Teal and Violet Colors
Celtic Knots (new fabrics)
Hankie Couture, hankiecouture on eBay, created the custom Irish Celtic dress.
Beautiful, yet so sturdy too. Exceptional quality.
The doll is wearing a new solo dress and head-piece, a Celtic pattern in her favorite colors of teal blue and violet. A Feis, meaning festival, is a competition and a public performance of Irish dances, one that often includes Irish crafts and traditional foods like soda bread. When a dancer becomes "advanced," a solo dress is designed for her, one dress that accents her own family heritage and includes Celtic symbols.
Her dress is as radiant as peacock plumes. Solo dresses can be all colors of the rainbow, though each dress has Celtic symbols on it, often in appliques and embroidery. The Celtic symbols are cut from new (100% cotton) fabric that I ordered from Cleeve Cottage in Somerset England. I sent the fabric to Hankie Couture, so designer Marsha could work her magic with it. It is Marsha's own design, having gold braid and closing with invisible snaps. I appreciate the many hours that my friend Marsha spent on creating this unique dress, a limited edition of only one.
A white slip or bloomers will prevent any possible staining from black fabric onto vinyl dolls.
Helen Kish's doll Seasons, repainted by myself as Brianna, models the dress. LINK: Click here to see more photos of this Irish doll on her webpage.
