Barbie Pattern ENCHANTED EVENING #983 (1963)
Vintage Repro from APF

APF #50 -- $6.50

This is another pattern from my Aileen's Petite Fashions collection, designed to fit Barbie and other 11-1/2" fashion dolls.

ENCHANTED EVENING (APF-50) #983 – With this pattern you can recreate one of the most recognizable and lovely vintage gowns from the 900 series released in 1960. The pink satin gown features a fold-over band at the stop of the strapless bodice, a slim fitted skirt with a unique side draped train, and pin satin-lined fur stole. The gown may be accented at the waist with either a satin rose or a cluster of sequins & beads—voth variations appear on the vintage outfits. One of the great classic designs for every collector! Great in other colors too!

This design was originally drafted by Aileen's Petite Fashions (Mini-Fashion Boutique became sole owner of Aileen's Petite Fashions in 1999). This pattern for Enchanted Evening includes a sketch and typed instructions as originally done by Aileen, with pattern pieces drawn by hand and printed on 8˝” x 14” white paper. Pattern is four pages. I have added an envelope with a photo of Aileen’s creation. Please note that while this pattern reflects the original design, it is a similar but not exact reproduction. APF patterns are available exclusively from Mini-Fashion Boutique.
