Here’s the fabulous French fashion doll book by renowned doll costumer Sylvia Mac Neil. The full title of the book is “The Enchanting Trousseau of Chiffonette Under Napoleon III 1852 - 1870.”
It contains over 500 excellent color photographs of 53 fashion doll outfits with their capes, vests, fichus, muffs, gloves and hats. Each item was carefully researched and then created by Sylvia using antique fabrics, trims, beads and laces. They are historically accurate and very finely made down to the last detail.
The model used was Sylvia’s prized Huret doll which is 45 cm tall. There are more than 170 items pictured on 295 pages. It is a hardcover book measuring 9 by 12 inches. Immaculate, like new condition.
A must have for any French fashion doll lover.
