An Afternoon in Borris, Co Carlow

Borris is a beautiful little village in Carlow, the surrounding scenery is stunning. There is a fantastic castle there too, so no better place to pose in a 1950’s inspired number…

There are some beautiful buildings across from the castle, I loved this doorway,

Sightseeing at Kilkenny Castle

Next stop: Kilkenny and time to check out Kilkenny Castle after a bit of vintage dress shopping for me in New York Doll, (I got a fantastic 1960’s white polyester shift dress, unworn, original shop tags attached. It’s very Jackie O. It was too big I made some alterations but that’s going to have to be another post!)

I was kinda thinking of Doris Day when I made this dress, she definitely would have worn something like this.

This dress is my nod to Jackie O.

Woodstown Beach

The house in the background is where Jackie Kennedy and her children stayed when they visited Ireland in June 1967, so I thought this outfit was appropriate.

Welcome to Dinah’s Dolls Clothes!

My mission is to bring back some glamour and style to dolls clothes! So, inspired by old movies and vintage fashion and armed with some old patterns and vintage fabric I started experimenting.
