gold court gown

Description One piece dress for 12" doll.

  • Gown has the high waistline and the split skirt, so you can see the ivory underskirt. The bodice consists of two-pieces - the shoulder seams don't exist - is close fitting, one front part laps over the other. V-neck opening fills a gathered inset, the bodice is lined. The skirt is cartridge pleated in the back only and has a short train. The gown fastens back with little snaps.

  • Sleeves are very wide and long, gathered in the armholes, then they are twice gathered above doll's elbow, once just under elbow, and then on the wrist with a fine white rubber thread. Gauntlets have sides sewn together with a black rubber thread, so it looks like the lacing. The lower gauntlets are closed with tiny hook and eye at the wrist. The upper gauntlets are tied to the gown with a golden bullion.

  • Underskirt is permanently attached to the gown and has not a train.

Used materials
  • For the gown I used a jacquard silk (after dying it appeared more green than yellow, but never mind);
  • a multiple washed fine handkrief battiste for the lining of the bodice;
  • non-dyed pong√© for the sleeves and the inset;
  • for the gauntlets I used wrong side of a deep green satin. They ar interlined with vlieseline and lined in a white habotai.
  • The underskirt is made from a cream satin-charmeuse.
