Penny Dreadful inspired White Petticoat - May2016

This commission for an Iplehouse EID woman doll (65cm) was inspired by the TV Series "Penny Dreadful" - the petticoat/chemise as worn by Vanessa Ives.

The chemise has been made with white batiste fabric. French lace graces the center front of the gown, edged in snow-white Floriani embroidery thread. Narrow French lace edges the neckline and armseyes as well.

The length of the gown was adjusted to allow her toes to peek out, as requested. The back of the gown has a small train which does lie on the 'floor'. Three small snaps close the back of the gown.

My Iplehouse EID (65cm) Carina (light brown "BellyDancer"), is modeling the petticoat, wearing her modded bra underneath. She is a medium bust doll so I padded her bra to increase the size to the 32cm of the Large Bust body. Carina was painted by LynR; she wears 10mm glass eyes and a vintage wig.
