Imagine for a second you are at the circus and out comes a beautifully dressed lady. She steps behind a curtain, and in the blink of an eye steps back out with a new dress on! But how does she do it? Is it magic? Or maybe just a cleverly crafted dress made just for her?! Now you can turn your doll into a Quick Change Artist as well! The Quick Change Artist consist of two looks: a Before Dress and an After Dress. The Before Dress is a playful sleeveless mini bubble dress with several small pleats along the neckline. It is designed to conceal the After Dress – simply undo a few snaps to release this dramatic V-neck gown with its slightly dropped waist and flowing handkerchief hem. This dress is designed to be folded up and hidden inside the Before Dress -- and later to conceal the Before Dress beneath its skirt. The tutorial walks you through the steps to make these magical changes happen. It also includes instructions on how to make the lovely After Dress on its own.
