This little doll has sustained a broken leg, but her original 1870s silk dress is still suitable to be used on another doll in need. This is a fashion style dress with the back being longer than the front. It is made of silk and does have some splitting in the front which I have photographed for you. That tiny hem is hand stitched as is everything else on this miniature gown. The doll wearing it is 2 inches tall. I will not remove her dress and send her to you as she is so there is less handling of this little, antique gown. If you are a purist and it makes you sad not to have the early clothing for your dolls, this dress might just make your day. Please feel free to ask questions or request more photos. Do take a peek at my other early items and thank you for shopping Red Dog Dolls.
