My friend seamstress and I collaborated in making this gown. A multi-layered tulle gown with a satin base and embellished with beautiful flat swarovski crystals. We decided to take away the doves because I felt it was somehow strange to be wearing a gown with stuffed animals. Feathers probably but not doves. The sleeves are called "gauntlets" thanks to the seasoned knowledge of my seamstress friend. They are not attached to the main gown and each one just goes into the arms of the doll. Earrings are from Tonner's Heartbroken doll. This doll is very special to me because it was the first Tonner Scarlett I ever had. It suffers a little green spot on its cheek and still I feel this hasn't at all kept it from being special to me. The hair has been styled short and re-tied at the back to give it the Scarlett lift on both sides of the head. You know what's missing? Nice blue jewelry. But Scarlett seems to be enjoying the dress well.
