Picture of Make a Fashion Doll "Dressy" Dress
Does your fashion doll have somewhere special to go but nothing dressy to wear? Well, we have the solution to her problem. This dress is so easy to make a child can do it, but it is dressy enough to wear to a movie premier or the ballet.

Step 1: What you will need

Picture of What you will need
This dress is a sheath with a cape. The way the fabric falls makes a sort of collar-shaped front over the bust.

Picture 1: You need a piece of fabric that looks great on both sides. This fabric shows the same, front and back. You can also use satin which shows shiny on one side and flat on the other or any other. Satin-backed velvet would be great too.

You also need a matching piece of ribbon and a sewing machine.

Thanks for the compliments! I did submit this to the contest and I am waiting for them to accept it since their contest is moderated. :) Whoo hoo! I am glad that you think it "worthy". Also, my daughter took all the photos that she was not in. Best, Carol
