Your dolls will love these perfectly scaled ballet shoes, complete with pleated toes and working elastic cord ties.

It's a rite of passage for new young dancers — sliding that first pair out of their wrappings, sewing on the dance elastics, and molding the slender, identical shoes to your very own left and right feet.

Now your dolls and doll lovers can enjoy that same thrill with our perfectly scaled replica BALLET SLIPPERS.

Just like real ballet shoes, our slippers feature cartridge-pleated construction that molds softly around the toes, a curved center back seam that hugs the heel, a bias-bound edge with an encased elastic cord that can be pulled up for a snug fit, and a slender natural suede sole.

All you need is a tiny rosin box, and your dolls will be ready to cross the floor in style!

Since launching our Etsy shop in 2013, Lee & Pearl have built a reputation for professionally drafted patterns that fit perfectly and go together easily, with amazing instructions. You will never find a mis-matched curve or vague direction in a Lee & Pearl pattern!Lee & Pearl Pattern 1073: Prima Ballerina Strapless Bodice and Classical Tutu with Basque and Panty for 18 Inch Dolls

Along with those reliable pieces, clear directions and carefully drafted measurements, Lee & Pearl are proud of our reputation for making patterns for one-of-a-kind doll outfits that look just like the real thing, whether it's a perfectly layered and balanced Classical tutu, or a skating dress with a skirt drafted to hang just like the real ones, or a slinky wrap dress indistinguishable from a '70s original, or a historically accurate (and deeply romantic) medieval gown, or a replica U.S. Army uniform that has to be seen — and made — to be believed, or... we could go on and on.

Some of these "Tweak the Pattern" features involve new pattern pieces, while others are suggestions for using unexpected materials or trims.
