Perfect Patterns Style 77|
Celebrating the 2005 Madame Alexander Convention in San Jose CA and named for the special event theme of 'Hollywood Sirens'.
Inspired by Grace Kelly in her role in the film 'Rear Window'.
This pattern is for a ballet length evening gown with a deep V-neck front and back black velvet bodice with cap sleeves. The bodice opens down the back. The white crepe de chine circle skirt includes many layers to give it fullness. It has two under layers of stiff netting, the lined skirt, and 5 overlayers of fine tulle or silk organza. If you use tulle, you may have to do the black 'twig' embroidery on the skirt layer, but if you use organza, which has much more body than tulle, you can do the embroidery on the top layer of organza for more spectacular impact.
