“At the Castle”, by Karen Lorraine Design, consists of a strapless bodice (with darts) attached to a close-fitting trumpet skirt. With the option of a lace overlay for the bodice, this stylish dress is complemented by a gentle veil and gorgeous gloves. The pattern is designed for woven cotton-type fabric.
These photos in ivory depict delustered satin fabric used for the bodice and skirt, with a lace overlay on the bodice, lace gloves, and bridal tulle for the veil. For a lighter look, the pink photos show the dress made out of muslin.
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 which the pattern will not fit.]
Due to the design of “At the Castle”, by making slight alterations this pattern will also fit the Monster High™ small sized kid sister and adult dolls, 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). The pattern will not fit the “giant” doll here either.]
All alterations for the different sized dolls are contained in the pattern. Here is an example of how the alterations are presented: “If you are sewing for the MH girl (medium) size, follow the patterns pieces as they are. Do the same for the small MH kid sister.
If you are sewing for the MH large adult doll or an Ever After High™ tall doll, then you will need to add 1/8" to each centre back long side of the skirt (pattern pieces #7 and #9), and add ½" to each centre back of the bodice and facing pieces (#1 and #2).
