This is a most elegant dinner dress ensemble dating from the very early 1870's. The gored skirt has a slight train, and a ruffle of knife edged pleats headed by a band of narrow velvet ribbon.
The overskirt is a confection! It has a center panel, two gores each side, and the back panel. It is curved, gathered and pleated into a marvelously feminine frou frou to top the skirt. It is trimmed in fringe and velvet ribbon.
Then the bodice is finely cut to flatter milady's trim shape. The back has a flirty peplum, and the front is cut away to reveal an inset. Elegant bell shape sleeves. Cut out neckline allows a favorite piece of jewelry to be beautifully displayed.
This pattern will enable you to make a simply beautiful costume for your doll!
It will fit dolls 11.5" to 12" tall. It is shown on a doll with the Seeley lady body, but should be able to be worn by other 12" FF with minor adjustments.
