Such a romantic and pretty dress ! Entirely hand made with a beautiful heavy off white mercerized cotton.
Under the collar,there is a great work of little folds and cotton lace insertion,as well as at the waist and at the bottom of the dress.
The collar and the sleeves are embellished with cotton lace.
The dress closes at the back with two little mother of pearl buttons (different).
There is a tear at the back, at the bottom on the opening,a small rust spot down at the back ,an other, tiny, between the two buttons,invisible when the dress is closed, and two little red traces,one in front at the bottom, partially hidden in a fold,and an other,very light, at the back on the hem.
Except these minor defaults, it is in good condition.
Dimension : 22,4’’ height (57cm)
8,7’’ shoulder to shoulder (22cm)
10,3’’ collar size (26cm)
6,1’’ sleeves length (15,5cm)
8,3’’ armhole opening (21cm)
10’’ across underarms (25cm)
I think this lovely dress would suit for a little girl about two years old or for a large doll.
The dress is displayed on a doll mannequin which is 32’’ high ,so it looks very tall !
