Here is my Virga doll in her pure silk tafetta party dress from pattern Simplicity 2775. All the details about the dress are here. I just love how you can style the tafetta so that is sticks out, exactly as it does in the drawing on the envelope cover.
I used vintage flowers from the 1950's, which gives the outfit added authenticity.
You might notice that the bodice is a bit low on her but I had so much trouble with the tulle straps. Even though I anchored the gathering threads, they still wanted to stretch out again. If I made this dress again, I would probably just use ribbon straps which would be just as nice.
I even made the bag which I think is so cute with it's ribbon handles.
Just for fun, here is an 'everyone in' photo of some of the dolls I have wearing pink, or close to it.
I like this pattern and I am thinking of making some of the other outfits from it and placing them and the doll in the box I have used as a background in these photos. I have seen some other people make these on the internet, and I think they look fantastic.
