This is a really awesome antique doll outfit consisting of a skirt and jacket. Both are lined very well in gold. The outfit seems like it would fit a larger fashion type doll and possibly go to top of boots so they would show. I believe that due to the size of the waist and jacket. It could be that this dress is meant for a child fashion type doll since the waist is larger. There is some water staining on the dress, mainly on the back skirt, but small amount on sleeves and front of skirt. Some splits in the silk, but mainly small and in the back where the stain is. I believe the jacket originally had some inside buttons that are missing as well as hooks and eyes on the brocade fabric closures. I pinned those to the jacket to close in my pictures. It is a very interesting ensemble! It is possibly it could be cleaned, but I will leave any cleaning to the buyer with this old silk fabric. Skirt measurements: Length: approx. 8 1/2" long Waist (lying flat): approx 5 5/8" across Jacket: Length from shoulder to hem: approx. 5 3/4" long Waist (lying flat): approx. 5 1/4" across Chest area (lying flat, from underarm to underarm: approx. 5 3/4" across (note: both of the above measurements could be adjusted by where you attach the brocade closures to jacket front) Sleeves are not meant to be short, I would say they are approx. elbow length. Sleeve length: approx. 4" long.
Think this would look spectacular on the right doll!
