Name of dress:  Purple Silk Gown
Made by: 
Willow Gothard
Made for:
Cristal Purr
Made with: purple silk, white cotton with purple flowers, ribbon lace, small lace, large lace.

Cristal decided to make this dress when she became tired of the same old dresses that she always wore to the Pleasantville Sewing Circle. 

She wanted something new that was not fancy enough to be a ballgown, but which was also enough to show her wealth and status to the other ladies.

The bodice has a beautifully tucked front, made out of white cotton with purple flowers.  It is framed by the large lace, which has been sewn to look like a collar. 
The actual collar of the dress is covered with a sweet light purple ribbon.

Cristal took this part of her design from a sailor dress pattern.

The sleeves, fashionably puffed, look elegant in the purple silk and finished off by small lace and a gathered ribbon lace on the sleeve cuff.

The skirt comes down in tulip-like panels lined with ribbon lace and coming up in the middle, curtain-style. 

The bottom of the skirt is covered in large lace that gracefully floats over the floor as Cristal walks.
