Liberty Jane Fall 2013
First Auction OOAK Outfit Up!

Just wanted to give everyone a head's up that the Liberty Jane Fall 2013 
Auctions have started on Ebay.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Liberty-Jane-Outback-Libby-Killara-18-inch-Doll-Clothes-for-American-Girl-Doll-/281173193437

If you like making collages for your outfits, 
this is a great example of an outfit collage for a listing.


I would not use it for my Etsy Square pic though - just fyi.
But it works wonderfully for an Ebay listing.

Each Liberty Jane Fall 2013 Ebay auction 
outfit is OOAK, and there will be four in total for this collection.


Liberty Jane takes wonderful photos of their products and they serve as great examples for what other sellers should be striving to attain in their photography.

In addition, they often photograph in their own little indoor studio, which is one of the things we'll be talking about in our 'Branding Your Etsy Squares' series.

Here are some mo' pics of their first Fall 2013 outfit and the write-up.






More About Killara...

Killara is the exciting new character from the pages of Outback Libby - Journey To Faraway Downs. She's sensitive, smart and most importantly, she is fabulously dressed. Outback Libby has a new sidekick and her name is Killara. 

(This book will be published for Amazon's Kindle at the end of September.)

What the winning bidder gets:


The Dress: Beautifully handcrafted dress featuring a silky chiffon fabric found at Britex Fabrics in San Francisco. The purple jewel tone print is accented with a pop of deep orange and highlights of shades of grey. The fitted sheer bodice uses two different prints that coordinate together perfectly. Along the front neck binding seam are hand sewn orange and purple beads - simple elegance at it's best! The elbow length sheer sleeves have elastic at the hem to provide the perfect drape. 

The waistband highlights the most interesting part if the fabric print, this beautiful design wraps around to the center back, both edges are topstitched for durability. The skirt portion of the dress features a high low hemline, two tiered layers of fabric provide a softly draped flowing skirt. The dress is worn over a white tank top made from a slub knit textured fabric.


The Bag: The perfect accessory for a girl in the outback! A faux leather fringed cross body bag. Bag construction is very simple - each tiny fringe strip is tied together around the entire perimeter of the bag. The 5 strand braided strap is secured through the metal eyelets with fringed knots. Beadwork on the front of the purse has been sewn by hand - these orange and purple beads glisten in the sun and compliment the dress fabric beautifully!

The Scarf: A simple organza scarf in ombre shades ranging from orange to pink. Edges of scarf are serged. Tiny flower charm hangs from one end. Scarf can be worn wrapped around the neck, tied in the hair, or even as a belt.


The Shoes: Tiny sandals made from real leather, stitched in dark purple and wrapped in a jute braided edging. Burgundy organza fabric is used for the straps and ties on the sandal. Shoes were made (with slight modification) from the Carrick Bend Sandal Pattern found at Pixie Faire.


The Bracelet: A fun metal cuff style bracelet featuring a bronzed finish and intricate heart design. Metal is bendable and can fit a variety of doll arms.

(The DW has actually made some bracelets like these 
out of human hoop earrings.
We cut off the parts that go through your ear and 
filed the metal edges so nothing was sharp.)

Construction Details: All seam allowances are professionally finished with enclosed seams, and tiny zigzag stitching. The back of the dress closes with three small snaps. The dress hems are beautifully stitched with a couture finishing technique designed for silk and chiffon fabrics. The outfit includes a beautiful wooden hanger for proper storage.


The Bonus: The Winner of this OOAK auction will also receive one of the New BIN Outback Libby Outfits that will be listed in the Liberty Jane Clothing Store in just a few weeks! This cute outfit features a pair of cheetah print shorts with a front fly and tiny welt front pockets. A white slub knit tank with a white rayon top layered over the top - perfect for protecting your skin from the harsh rays of the outback sun! The top features the same construction design as the Killara dress, a deep v front with neck binding and a top stitched waistband. Top is made from white rayon challis fabric, super soft to the touch!


Liberty Jane also makes Animoto Youtube videos for their outfits, which they embed into their Ebay listings and which they usually post on their Youtube channel.



Make your own slideshow with music at Animoto.
