The Colette Dress

For the doll with classic elegant style we present The Colette Dress.

This dress began as so many do: with a great fabric. In this case it was a gorgeous wine colored silk velvet. It is the perfect color for Fall as well as a wonderful weight for doll wear.We knew we wanted the skirt to be made from a different material and after much searching we found a beautiful ivory silk-cotton blend. It is incredibly soft and luxurious and goes perfectly with the velvet. Now it was time to turn our lovely materials into a dress. We started with a simple bodice. It features seaming down the front and elbow length sleeves. Next we added an elegant shawl style collar and lining of silk cotton. Then we created a very full tea length skirt to give the dress more elegance. Finally, we finished the back with an invisible zipper for a neat look. Colette will take your doll from evening soirees to a more formal Thanksgiving dinner. Elizabeth thinks she is Grace Kelly when she wears it.

This dress is available in a limited edition quantity of three so visit our Etsy shop to purchase your own!
