new fairy couture

Some new fairy dresses I'm working on for the fall collection...

this one was inspired by a dress worn by Claudette Colbert
in a 1930s movie I can't remember the name of.
Fittingly, it's for a Parisian garden fairy named Claudette.
The bodice is composed of guinea fowl feathers and down,
with cap sleeves and brooch of poppy pods, and a slim, pencil skirt of paper birch.

Here's a frothy, floaty, sensual dress with a skirt and top of hibiscus flowers, trimmed with gladiola petals and tiny blossoms. It was commissioned by Sofia, a flower fairy from Tuscany.
They'll both be available for purchase in the Camp Cactus etsy shop on Tuesday.


  1. Smedley says, "Hey, can I get one of each in size 8 1/2? NOT SMALL! Besides my questions, these are beautiful, each one."

    Sparky says, "I like Sofia's dress best, but I think they're both pretty."

    Laurie says, "You never fail to amaze me with your talent, Jane. Thanks for letting us know about these!"
