What a perky GIBSON GIRL silhouette she has! This adorable little 11" CHILD FRENCH FASHION is incised F 3/0 G on her shoulder plate. Made by Gaultier, these small fashions are extremely popular now. Circa 1890, this charmer is in great condition. PERFECT BISQUE HEAD. Nice sturdy ORIGINAL TWILL BODY. She wears a Gibson Girl walking suit.....ENTIRELY HAND SEWN!....made from a BEAUTIFUL ANTIQUE SILK SATIN TAFFETA....the kind that rustles when you walk! The bodice is lined in the wonderful brown lining fabric of the period. She also has custom made split drawers with lace, a chemise, a petticoat with lace edging and custom made cotton socks...again, entirely hand sewn and correct for the 1890 period. Hook and eye closures.
This young lady has her ORIGINAL BLONDE MOHAIR WIG styled in the Gibson Girl updo. She has custom-made crystal earrings and a custom made straw hat.....no detail was overlooked! This outfit was made approximately 25 years ago by a NYC designer who enjoyed dressing dolls in period fabrics and sewing them to be historically correct. She loved the research and the joy of finding just the right fabric and dress style for a doll.
This darling little fashion is so charming. For such a little lady, she makes quite a statement! She would be a great addition to your collection.
