If you are looking for the most wonderful antique baby dress...tiny blue checked fabric in pristine condition, then you have come to the right place! This came out of a Pa. estate and it dates to the late 1800s. I came across this one and a similar one in tiny calico that is offered on another listing. Be sure to check that one out also. This one is 8" across the shoulders, has 10" long sleeves and is 17" long. It has a little collar and a strap in the back at the waist area. It has a pleat down the front and is layered at the bottom. The back is opened the whole way down and closes with small mother of pearl buttons. This may have been made for a little boy to wear. It has machine and hand stitching and is as perfect as the day it was made...over 100 years ago. It will look wonderful on your favorite large antique doll. They don't get any better than this one!
