These early calico patterns are absolutely delicious! These pieces were made for a china head probably in the 1860s. The skirt has a waistband of another early calico that complements the other print and it is trimmed along the bottom by yet another print. The over skirt, or bustle, is the fourth pattern between these two pieces. The skirt measures 4 1/2 inches in the front and a bit longer in the back. Its waistband measures about 2 1/8 inches lying flat. The bustle measures 2 1/2 inches down to point in the front and roughly 3 3/4 in the back. Its waistband is about 2 1/4 inches lying flat. This piece has a bit of a rough edge in the back. I am not sure what that is about. They both close with early porcelain buttons and hand made buttonholes. The little blouse is a muslin piece. It measures not quite 3 inches long from neckline to hem and is about 2 1/2 inches across the shoulder. The tatting is coming loose on the sleeves. It closes with a shell button. This is a very special trio in a hard to find size. Please feel free to ask questions or request more photos and do check out my other early listings. Thanks for the look.
