Darling Red Taffata Small Bebe Dress
This little dress had been a bit over "fussed", so I have removed some of the trim, and now I think it looks rather pretty. Older vintage French style drop waisted dress, with tiny gray mother of pearl buttons on the bodice. The dress is of watered red taffeta, and is a mixture of hand and machine sewing, though unlined the construction is very good. The dress measures 11 1/2" long, 4" across shoulders, 5" long sleeves. The dress is a fairly narrow cut in the sleeves @ about 2" flat at the top, and approx 1 1/2" flat at the wrist, and would probably be best for a slim fashion or kid bodied doll of about 14"-16" but please check your own doll against the measurements. Dress fastens to the back with snaps, and opens down to the ruffle, which should make it fairly easy to put on. The dress is in good condition for the age, it shows slight wear to the fabric, but no stains, rips or major issues. I have sashed with red silk satin ribbon, but you could easily change this for any color of your choice.
