Robe a la franšaise look on my second Madame de Pompadour Deridoll.
I still need to figure how to do a robe a la franciase for my dolls...
Fabric may require a different approach, but, with felt, I simply stretch the back part of the dress so it has a very wide center. Then it's just a matter of folding the excess to get that sack back look and stitch the folds down along the back to keep the shape.
Love the curls!! <3
