I don't often come across an early calico dress that was made using such beautifully coordinated calico fabrics. I love these particular calicos because of the pink flowers against the taupe browns used in each fabric. It is truly a charming combination. Notice that the waist band is yet another calico and, the interior hem (which is not photographed) is yet another calico, this one in blue. Condition is very nice with just a few loose stitches at the top of one sleeve and a hole in the skirt. The top piece measures about 6 inches across the shoulders and is 10 inches long. Notice the princess seams down the front and the color coordinated porcelain buttons down the back. Button holes are hand stitched as is the rest of this outfit. Notice the details of the ruffles around the base of the top and around the wrists with a bit of lace at the collar. Skirt also boasts a double row of ruffles. The skirt measures 12 inches from waist to hem. I do notice one hole along the side of the skirt. Lying flat, the skirt measures 4 inches across. Skirt requires a pin to close it. This is just a wonderful dress probably from the 1860s-70s made be a skilled seamstress with an eye for the details, a combination that is often difficult to find in these early outfits. Please feel free to request more photos or ask questions. Do take a look at my other early dolls and accessories and thank you for shopping Red Dog Dolls.
