This pattern is straight from the runway of the 60’s. Popular in a formal style for Proms and Bridesmaids or dressed down in a casual fabric for dates. The pattern is for a straight two piece dress with cap sleeves and a couple of variations for a detachable skirt. Little darts at the waist of the straight dress are a popular feature reminiscent of the 1960’s time period. The dress can be worn alone with a belt or other waist embellishment, or add a Gathered or Pleated Outer Skirt. Any way you choose will be sure to please the most discriminating of dolls and owners looking for a retro style or a modern flair.
Now off to the Prom, a Wedding as a Bridesmaid….........or just looking good for an everyday date.
