Ready Yet?

Isn't this lady elegant and poised? I can almost smell her perfumed powder.


I'm not sure about her face and hair, but that dress! I can't get past those wonderful pleats and the way they drape. She's straight out of an old Fred Astaire musical, or maybe one of those original Barbie catalogs.

I found the pattern for this one online somewhere and I'd love to see what makes up the rest of the set. Anyone know? (I thought for a moment that it was this gal. The hair style is right, but the lettering and background are definitely from a different set.)

I agree with the Fred Astaire comment. She is beautiful and I can smell my mom's perfumed powder when looking at her. Now I am going to sneeze.... So pretty.

Nicely done. A very vintage look.

Beautifully done! I remember when moms used powder puffs. Definitely Fred Astaire partner material. I hope you find the rest of the set.
