Mori Girl Ruffled Dress 18" Doll Clothes

1   |  

If you see a girl that looks as though she is a fairy tale forest dweller who has just stepped out of an enchanted wood, chances are good you’ve spotted a Mori Girl. Born in Japan as a subculture, Mori Girl style embodies living in the moment and living in harmony with nature.

Mori (meaning forest) Girl style is all about natural fibres and colours from nature – creams, browns, greens and autumnal oranges, reds and yellows. The dress features ruffled layers and a clean looking, zipper-style hook and loop closure in the back. Also included is a Slip Skirt. Mori style favours a lot of layering and the Slip Skirt works perfectly under the dress. This dress can be used as a ‘foundation layer’ for Mori Girl style, but also works as a cute, everyday dress.

Spring Time Beautiful dress

I love the Mori Look, and I love how Kelibu bring the look into her patterns. Each dress can have a look of its own depending on the lace you choose. Very well written pattern and I love the pictures that always go along with her patterns. Traci is always there if you have a problem just ask and she will answer. I can't wait to sew a few more. Lace shopping is so much fun now too.
