Having a ball

Yippee! The Cadewyn Dress pattern from Melody Valerie Couture is now available!

The Cadewyn Dress was featured in the Melody Valerie Couture Fall 1023 Inventions in Steampunk Collection. This epic ball gown for 18” dolls features architecturally pleated shoulders, a high back collar, and a dramatic silhouette. An optional Center Front scallop detail adds interest. Side lacing provides a venue to showcase your favorite ribbon or trim; it closes up the back with a zipper and some hooks and eyes. 

This dress would look great in fabric that holds a crease, such as a crisp cotton, nylon, or silk dupioni. Tulle is probably your simplest choice for the overskirts, but for a challenging (and exciting) effect, try layering several different colors of chiffon. 

Suggested fabrics to use: This PDF pattern was designed for use with silk habotai (China silk) or other very lightweight, soft-bodied, lightly woven fabrics like cotton batiste or a thin tencel lining fabric.

Now for Dianne, and I'll be all set for my Diesel Punk look.

  1. Beautiful gown. I think it might be too advanced for my sewing skills, but I love looking at patterns. :)
