In the early 80's I had the opportunity to enter a design contest (for humans, not dolls). The grand prize winner would have their design manufactured and sold in retail stores across the country. Although I didn't win, I enjoyed the process and still do today. Only now for dolls, not humans. LOL! Recently I ran across some photographs of my entry and thought I would share.
The stone green gabardine 2-piece suit with contrasting red Ultrasuede accents certainly had a 40's vibe. The illustrations were done by a professional artist.
