~Lavender and Lace~ Titanic/Edwardian Style Dress

This sweet confection was inspired by Rebecca's 1914 dresses (from the American Girls' Collection). I must say that I think it is my favorite dress I've made so far! And I love them all, so that's saying a lot. ;-) 

 The elbow length sleeves and dropped bodice are accented by pretty white lace trim and the waist band is graced by a lavender rosebud.

  An over skirt of lace makes this a gorgeous dress for a special occasion, and the white satin slippers and hair bow add just the right finishing touches.

Dress, including hair bow and slipper shoes~ $26, plus shipping.

Please comment or email me at if you would like to purchase this lovely ensemble. Payment by Paypal or check accepted. :-)

My lovely Rebecca doll is modeling this outfit, and is not included in the sale.
