Poppy Parker - in Carol Peters!

Portrait in Black Poppy Parker in a OOAK outfit by Carol Peters.

Another fun photo shoot from the doll meet yesterday, Portrait in Black Poppy Parker got to try on a brand new outfit. This doll belongs to Valerie, one of our contributors, who is desperately trying to get ready for IFDC. (As I am, though I was too excited not to share photos of this lovely outfit!)

Val had asked Carol Peters, another long-time member of the doll club, to make her a dress from this pre-pleated watercolor fabric, thinking it would be a great mod-era dress. Sure enough, it's perfect!

Carol thought Poppy needed something more, too, so she also added:

  • A turquoise coat, with a closure at the neck, lined in hot pink
  • A matching purse, with a beaded handle and beaded trim
  • A hairband with an oversized bow

Poppy looks absolutely adorable in this outfit! You can see more photos on Flickr.

I'm trying to convince Carol to create some addition one-of-a-kind works and sell them. What sizes would you like to see?

I can't wait to show you what she created for my SD-sized Yeru!


  1. That's an awesome outfit. Perfect for Poppy.

  2. I'll be sure to pass along the compliment to Carol! Thanks, Vanessa. :)

  3. Oh my, the outfit is so Poppy! Love it! That swing coat could be a nod to the very HTF vintage Barbie "Beautiful Blues", only it is even better! I am wow'ed.

  4. So fantastic! Beautiful work, Carol!
