Introducing Lee & Pearl Pattern 1076: Grand Gala Ballgown, Evening Gloves and Neo-Classical Tutu Ensemble for 18 Inch Dolls.

The NEW Lee & Pearl Pattern 1076: Grand Gala Dropped Waist Ballgown with Evening Gloves and Russian Ballet Bodice with Neo-Classical Tutu, Basque and Panty for 18 inch dolls is now LIVE in our Etsy shop — and it’s 20% OFF in honor of Cyber Week!

It's the night of the ballet company Grand Gala and our little dancer enchants the crowd with her solo, wearing an elegant Russian ballet bodice and graceful Neo-Classical tutu.

After her performance, she hurries backstage to change into her party dress — a dropped waist ballgown with built-in tulle petticoats, ribbon belt and luxurious evening gloves.

Now all eyes are upon her as she enters the ballroom, ready to dance the night away...

Since launching our Etsy shop in 2013, Lee & Pearl have built a reputation for professionally drafted patterns that fit perfectly and go together easily, with amazing instructions. You will never find a mis-matched curve or vague direction in a Lee & Pearl pattern!Lee & Pearl Pattern 1073: Prima Ballerina Strapless Bodice and Classical Tutu with Basque and Panty for 18 Inch Dolls

Along with those reliable pieces, clear directions and carefully drafted measurements, Lee & Pearl are proud of our reputation for making patterns for one-of-a-kind doll outfits that look just like the real thing, whether it's a perfectly layered and balanced Classical tutu, or a skating dress with a skirt drafted to hang just like the real ones, or a slinky wrap dress indistinguishable from a '70s original, or a historically accurate (and deeply romantic) medieval gown, or a replica U.S. Army uniform that has to be seen — and made — to be believed, or... we could go on and on.
