The 1940’s are one of my favorite fashion eras and I designed this gown from that inspiration. The red Victoria’s Secret stretch satin lent luxury and gorgeous drape (and red for Christmas!). Sewn in miniature, it fits 25 inch tall ball jointed dolls.

Material Notes

Victoria’s Secret stretch satin




Summer, Spring

    Lovely dress! Would also be great for a real person! But the doll looks also adorable!

    Beautiful! The fabric works so well at that scale, that I thought the doll was a full size mannequin!
