Elegant, by Karen Lorraine Design, consists of a strapless bodice with darts attached to a sophisticated skirt. The skirt is close-fitting in the front while sweeping into a train from the back. This pattern also includes a detachable train that mimics the skirt train while also flowing gently around the front sides. The bodice contains a small facing, whereas the skirt is unlined. This pattern is designed for woven fabric (and is not for knit stretch fabrics).
These photos depict satin used for the bodice and skirt and organza for the facing and the train. For a gentler look for the train, use a softer fabric like chiffon.
This pattern was primarily designed for the Monster High™ girl size. Generally, Monster High™ female dolls come in three sizes: adult (29cm height), girl (27cm height), and kid sister (25cm height). [There is also a newer “giant size” of about 17 inches.] Due to the design of “Elegant”, this pattern will also fit the Monster High small sized kid sister doll, as well as the three general Ever After High dolls. [Ever After High™ female dolls come in three main sizes: tall girl (28cm), medium girl (27.25cm), and short girl (24.5cm).]
Check out the Elegant pattern for 9-11" fashion dolls such as Barbie®, also available on Pixie Faire.
