A lined and piped semi-circular overskirt is attached to the bodice, as is the lined, multiple layered net underskirt. The dress closes at the back with Hook & Loop Tape.

Lovely pattern, and just in time for this year's Oscars Runway Fashion Gala. I love to see collections of dolls wearing their red carpet outfits. This one, I thought, was both lavish, but at the same time age appropriate for my dolls. I made this with black velveteen. The bodice was a metal flecked Keepsake Calico from Joann's. The tulle has gold specks. You should see it sparkle under flood lighting! Great pattern. Great fit.
