Mme. Olivia requests the pleasure of your company at her elegant reception at 333 Rue Chic, Paris, France. She will be wearing a most stylish dress from 1910, trimmed with Point D’Esprit lace fabric and a plenitude of lustrous silk ribbon. Shimmery beads are sprinkled here and there to please her fancy.
Her headpiece fits just so, to gently caress her curls, and the marabou flourish accented with sparkling tinsel is held captive by the ornate metal filigree.
Your doll can also possess a beautiful dress just like her own. This pattern will show you how!
This style has an elevated waistline, back closure, and a shaped 4 gore skirt. This is a pattern which is simple to construct, made fancy by elegant use of materials, lace and ribbon.
DESCRIPTION OF THE PATTERN: This pattern comes packaged in a clear plastic sheet protector so you can insert it into a binder. The front cover of the pattern shows several views in full color. There are very clear directions and neatly drawn patterns to help you every step of the way!
This clothing was made to fit the Gildebrief French Fashion doll body (which makes up into a doll about 12" tall with the head) but should fit other similar size French Fashions as well, wth possibly minor adjustments.
My doll is Olivia, an exquisite Simon and Halbig 1159 made for me by Barbi Kantor-Goldenberg. The 1159 was originally made for the French market (as well as for the German market) and has been found on antique French lady bodies. Hence my consideration that she can be regarded as a later French fashion doll.
