This dress began one day when Lauren saw a picture in a magazine of a branch of leaves. The leaves were in the process of changing- half green, but fading into orange. Lauren remembered we had some green silk and orange satin in our fabric stash, and after much draping and pinning, The Changing Leaves Dress was born. We wanted it to capture the look of the leaves so we began by making half of the bodice green and half orange. After adding some pleats and gathers we were loving the way it was looking. Next, we attached sweet cap sleeves, again, one green and one orange. Then came the skirt: a paneled design. We love how it continues with the idea of the changing leaves! We fully lined the dress in cotton sateen, and added a tea dyed satin ribbon to the waist. After adding snap closures, (it functions as a wrap dress) our Autumn inspired creation was finally complete.
We think this dress could take your doll any wear this season! Try dressing it up or down for different occasions.
