Dressed to make an impression, everyone's favorite young movie star made her appearance at "The Oil Baron's Ball" in a gold and burgundy striped silk gown. The rich colors off-set her red hair nicely, while the form-fitting bodice shows off what most men call her best feature.
Ms. Gene Marshall isn't usually one to go for flamboyant assymetrical styles, but there is no denying the appeal of this design. If she was hoping for a dramatic look, she's found it.
Ms. Marshall's gown is made from a very light-weight silk with deep gold and maroon stripes to accentuate the assymetrical line. The simple bodice ties at her left shoulder with just a hint of daring.
She wears black evening gloves and a few pieces of coordinating jewelry and brown pumps to complete her ensemble.
This dress was inspired by the lovely picture shown below. This picture is the illustration from McCall #6688, 1946 printed in Blueprints of Fashion. (A copy of this picture will be included in the box.)
This is the last of my competition pieces from the National Gene Convention 2001 to remain unclaimed. I hope you will enjoy this lovely doll.
"Gold Stripe" is displayed on "Iced Coffee."
