Today is the first day of Chinese New Year. And although we are not in Singapore anymore, our nostalgia is so great that I decided to continue with the tradition and celebrate this feast.
My Claire (A Girl for All Time Lydia) has decided to dress up as a Manchurian lady. This is not my outfit, it is an outfit by Carpatina made for slim 18-inch doll like Carpatina. The dress is a fit too long for Claire but it doesn’t really matter.
So, this is a traditional Manchurian outfit made out of red brocade with embroidered blossoms, trimmed with black and silver brocades and has functioning red frogs closure. Oh, those traditional frog buttons – they are so frustrating to use!! I have a Chinese blouse myself and it uses the same fastening. It takes forever to fasten and unfasten them!!
Anyway, Gong Xi Fa Cai!! Happy Chinese new Year!
The outfit has matching red brocade slippers that fir AGAT girls perfectly.
