This dress is in excellent condition and I don't believe that it has ever been on a doll before. I believe that this is a factory made piece. From neck to hem it measures 11 inches long and, since it does not have shoulder seams, I have measured under the arms and that measurement is 5 1/5 inches. Waist is 5 inches lying flat. Notice the wonderful white collar and the Greek key design on the trim and the use of peach color fabric at the neck and on the sleeves. There are no closures on the back. If you have a special doll and have been waiting for a very sweet dress in great condition, this is the one. Please feel free to ask questions or request more photos. Do take a look at my other early doll items and thank you for shopping Red Dog Dolls.
