Once again, this Momoko doll dress sewing project is one of my older patterns, from back in the days when this blog was really just a personal journal.
Today’s white “wedding” gown was actually the shift worn under Momoko’s ball gown, when she played Juliet in my stop motion video, Romeo and Juliet with Dolls, for which I have produced Acts 1 through 3 so far. All five acts have been filmed, but I’m still working on getting the videos and still shots compiled into a completed (hopefully) work of art!
To make today’s pure and pretty white “wedding” dress, including the veil, you’ll need the following items: solid color cotton fabrics, white tulle (for the veil), embroidery floss, and size 3/0 Dritz snaps.
Today’s patterns will fit these dolls*:
