A Dress is Born-Barbie to Gilles Montezin

Gilles Montezin is recreating in life size, Jaye size proportions this Mattel fashion from Barbie's mid-Century wardrobe. http://gillesmontezin.com/  Lucky me! He will also create a special bolero jacket to cover my own mid-Century shoulders since I am not a 'teen-age fashion model' in the Barbie sense of the phrase. I had my first fitting earlier this summer and will premiere the dress at the  United Solo Theater Festival performance in November.  Thank you to Carl Goldberg of Cego Custom Shirts and Andrew Axelrod for pointing me to Ellen and David of Rosen & Chadick Fabrics. John JP Patrick will style me for the dress debut at "Bird Amongst the Blossom"-a tribute to the Blossom Dearie Songbook.
