Modes Royale Crepe Cocktal Dress

One bodice, many different looks.

It all started with this 1953 Modes Royal dress.

In 2008 I attend my very first doll convention "The Girls from Dream City".  I decided to make a dress for the auction.

I was thrilled to receive an Oona doll for making an outfit.

Ten years later, and I am finally getting around to making more dresses and the pattern.

Of course I couldn't stop at making just a white dress.

I love my new PS Zita!

The ladies look lovely together. 

I loved the bodice of this dress so much, that I make chiffon and tulle versions of it.

I used scraps of the sequined fabric from my last project.

This version is my favorite. 

I also used the leftover fabric and lace from the previous project to make these rose taffeta dresses.  Violet's dress has a full circle skirt, and Gene's dress has a half circle skirt.

I love this color on both of these dolls.

Just in time for summer, I used the bodice to make some adorable gingham sundresses.

Pattern Coming Soon!
