My very favorite gothic dolly dress. Sold to Australia, but the photos remain!

If you are familiar with my Etsy store, you know that one of the things that excites me is reinventing the way something is worn. I get a creative kick of repurposing something that was written off.  One of the easiest way to do this is to hike up elastic waist skirts and make them into strapless dresses. However, I also take doughty tunics from two piece sets (think 80s mother-of-the-bride), and style them as sexy party dresses! I hate waste and thank Basya Berkman for this inheritance. She was my great-grandmother, the family matriarch and namesake of this blog (and my store).
I love how this outfit turned out on my model.  The label is actually the respected designer house of Judith Ann and commanded a significant amount of money in its day in the formal wear market. Yesterday’s frump is today’s Gothic Lolita!

And now some babydoll dresses that have come through my store!

The lace one is a Betsey Johnson that is kind of like a tunic/dress - pairs w/bottoms or wear it as an ultra mini. Find it here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/80061657/vintage-betsey-johnson-babydoll?ga_search_query=betsey&ga_search_type=user_shop_ttt_id_5850866

The baby blue one was snatched up by my model with vicious enthusiasm before I had a chance to even list it. It’s one of the truest “baby doll” dresses that I have ever seen as it literally looks like a little dress for a doll…but in adult size.

The one on the right is a 70s take on the style - soft and flowy a la Virgin Suicides.

don’t have source for this, but love the contrast of the 2 center baby dolls - one schoolgirl prim and proper, the other a true dolly - ultra short, white, and “innocent”. One of the key elements: cute collar, often “Peter Pan” style.
