The Sailor Look-- some things never go out of style. This pattern although shown off the doll, will in fact fit a lady doll, so do not shy away from using it only for a static display. The pattern and style of dress date to the 1920’s and you can tell by looking it seems quite “modern” and might actually work today.

The lady of any Victorian home would be proud to meet her guest for her in home day. This Ladies Reception Dress is sometimes challenging design, but the results are worth it. Dollhouse size 1":1' scale. The dressmakers kit only includes the fabrics and trims needed to dress the doll. It does not include anything to complete the doll.
The gown is created from Orchid silk taffeta, and is complimented by a tightly fitted bodice of matching orchid silk brocade. Dress was inspired by Tom Tierney Gibson Girl paper doll, but the detailed cape came directly from the fashion pages of the time. The shoulders are richly "embroidered" with silk trim buds and bows. The short fluted cape is created in the same orchid silk, but with an eye-popping lining of deep olive green which blends perfectly with the silk trim. To complete the look we've added a beautiful pearl and amethyst necklace dropped from a perfectly sized silk cord. The purse just completes the ensemble using the same exceptional fabrics.

Costume design and inspiration by Theoni D. Aldridge For the Martin Beck Theatre in New York, 1980. I was asked to dress a Nancy Cronin creation and all I could think of when I saw her was the illustration for the costume mentioned above. I was given carte blanche to create something in my own way and to combine Nancy’s artistry with mine. It was a pleasure to work on this doll. She is something different for sure. They cannot all be porcelain beauties, can they?
Welcome to 1880, where the garments fit close to the figure and cut narrowly to accentuate a thin silhouette. The stand up lace collar with lace jabot adorns the top of a long jacket and vest that extend below the hips. Sleeves are long and tight. Foundation skirts if not tight to the body tied behind the knees, as this is to draw all the fullness to the rear. Draped apron front and back finish out the iconic look. The pleated or ruffled hem gathers to the back and flare in a slight train.
This pattern is fantastic as an accessory or to fit to a doll. The combination slip would be great made in silk charmeuse as well. Don't forget, the shoe instructions are included. For the dressmakers kit you can choose the ecru/green combination (see link below for robe color). The Blue/Silver version has sold out.
This is the first pattern available from the Creative Doll Blog showing of the dressing of this young miss. If you follow the blog the entire costume should be available by August. This pattern includes instructions to complete the stockings, "French knickers", and garter.
