Anna Celeste; ready for the dance, and sweet dreams.
I have a pattern for the bodice, which is a simple adaptation of the camisole pattern. I was caught up the making process and did not write down specific instructions for the skirt and bodice trims, but there are suggestions in the bodice pattern. Use some of your lace patterns and create a lovely gown of your very own :-)
Evening Gown Bodice
You may notice that Anna has a different hairstyle for the ball. With this doll it is so easy to make more than one wig for her to wear :-) This one has a center part created with double crochet and slip stitches, and numerous long curles caught up at the back of her head, with a couple along the neckline. White roses decorate her hair.
After the ball, Anna will be very tired, so she will slip into her nightgown and snuggle into bed, dreaming of the wonderful time she had at the dance:
Sweet dreams, Anna Celeste :-)
