A pattern to make a circa 1860's Ladies' Carriage dress Ensemble for 12" French Fashion Dolls
What a feminine carriage dress! Once upon a time, it was common to see ladies in delightful ensembles just like this, rolling gently down the avenue behind a matched pair of fine horses...
The costume includes a tucked chemisette with detached sleeves; a full skirt with the gathered back extending into a train; and a bodice attached to a sweeping overskirt. It is trimmed with lace, velvet ribbon, and self fabric pleating.
Her hat is a little bit of nothing, made from two laces, a ribbon bow and cut fabric streamers.
Just the thing for a special outfit for your 1860's era French Fashion!
This pattern will enable you to make a simply beautiful costume for your doll!
The pattern cover has several views in full color... the instructions are clear and concise, to guide you every step of the way. It comes packaged in a heavy clear plastic sleeve which can be inserted into a binder. My email address is given with the pattern, so if you have any questions, feel free to contact me for assistance.

This pattern was made to fit a well proportioned French Fashion type doll, from 11.5" to 12" tall. It is shown on a doll with the Gildebrief lady body, but should be able to be worn by other 12" FF with minor adjustments.
You are buying on the pattern only... the doll and accessories shown in the photos are not included. Doll clothing made by, and the pattern designed and published by Dede Kern.
