A ballet by Delibes in which an inventor creates a beautiful dancing doll so life like that a young man falls in love with her. His jilted sweetheart dresses as the doll in an effort to win back his affection and dances for him.

This gown is in shades of sparkling white and palest pink. The off the shoulder bodice in pale pink silk taffeta has a ruched bust embroidered with silver beads and a pink pearl. A pink band and bow accentuates the slender waist. The voluminous skirt is made of white tulle embroidered in pale pink and white flowers. Eight layers of white tulle gives the skirt added fullness. A crown of white roses interspersed with pale pink blossoms is a finishing touch for this lovely dancer.
