1930s Gown with Blue Starry Sky Skirt and White Satin Bodice with Peplum and Sapphire Pearl Brooch

A 1930's style evening gown. It is sleeveless, and has a deep V neck with ruching at the shoulders and chest. It has a peplum around the hips and a long, fitted skirt that flares out slightly at the ankles. The bodice and peplum are a delicate, shiny white silk, and there is a sapphire cabochon ringed with pearls at the neckline. The skirt is a dark purple-blue near the waist, gradually turning into lighter and lighter shades of blue towards the hem. It is overlaid with a field of gently shining stars.Click for larger version (PNG); click for PDF version. Click here for the list of dolls.

Another version of the 1930s gown. With this one I wanted to play with gradients, and I also changed the shading on the skirt, because I thought that the previous version looked pretty flat. The star brush is by Obsidian Dawn.

No one has guessed Milo’s favorite food yet… I’ll give you a hint, it’s white when I buy it and pink when I feed it to him. Winner gets to tell me how to color this gown, one entry per person on every new post. (So if you’ve guessed on a previous post you can guess again today, but if you haven’t guessed on a previous post you can’t go back to them and guess more than once.) Edit: Dannyscotland got it right! It’s yogurt. At least I think that’s his favorite. Dannyscotland, please post how you’d like me to color this dress!

I am making various changes to the site, so have patience with me if, say, you should see it looking totally goofy because a new theme has placed all my sidebar menu items at the top of the page instead. One change I like is the ability to navigate by dress. It’s a work in progress, though. You can also now see all the dolls at one. (All four of them, sure, two of which are retired, but still it’s something.) Also, I’ve started a Twitter feed that’s just for paperdoll related things, primarily updates to my page but I might write other things there as well. It’s @lianapaperdolls.

  1. What?? I guessed it??? No way! My two girls love yogurt, too. My oldest one is obsessed with the kind that comes with tiny M&Ms.

    Oh the dress. Ha ha, distracted thinking about my kids. I would love to see some kind of classy looking pinkish shade. I know, some people hate pink. I love it. But it could be like a fuschia-bright shade, it doesn’t have to be a super-baby-girly pink. Ohhh with a little gold or silver trim, that would be gorgeous.

    This was so fun! Thank you! I am so happy that you’re back. My daughter and I really enjoy following your blog.

  2. Oh, sorry; I just noticed that the prefilled form I was typing in says Kathy not Dannyscotland. I’m the same person, I promise. :-) Liana you can tell from my email.
