Her gown is made using silk and the contrast (darker green) is dupioni silk. The bustle and train are detachable.  Her underpinnings are white satin split drawers, stockings and leather slipper shoes. Under her gown she is wearing a minty green petticoat. I added more ruffles.

 I wasn't sure how I was going to style her hair and found myself watching "Gibson Girl" up-dos. With dolls one has to become a costume designer, make-up artist, and hair stylist.

Slowly but surely work is being accomplished. I needed to make a few more mock-ups to arrive at the proper bodice. I wanted princess seams and a square neckline. I used dupioni silk.

 I chose tiny white pearls, rose colored seed beads and matching sulky thread to bead the trim.
 I did the same with her silk skirt. She also received a pair of stockings and satin split drawers.
