Fabulous silk doll's dress for china or fashion doll. This stunning two piece silk dress was made by a very talented seamstress. I do not know how long ago this was made: I have had this for a while and it did not really fit the doll it came on. The silk is very old and likely antique. I assumed the dress had been made by the collector from whom I purchased the doll, who was herself a great seamstress, but it is just now occuring to me that she may not have made the dress and that would explain why it did not fit the doll well. There are some areas of wear and melting, but this is an entirely useable and gorgeous dress. Here are the measurements: Waist of skirt measures 8 inches around and it is 15 inches long, sweep of skirt is about 72 inches. Bodice is 5.75 inches across shoulders, sleeves are 4 inches long, inner sleeve is 3.5 in circumference (the ruffles are attached to inner sleeve) front bodice is 5.5’ inches to bottom, back length is 4.625 inches. The entire waist measures 8.625 inches edge to edge. It is being modeled on a cloth body that has been sold.
