This sweet antique baby doll dress and chemise or slip are hand made with tiny pearl buttons on the back and hand stitching with lace accents.
The dress has puffy long sleeves, tucks at the neck with hand stitched accents and a lace ruffle at the neck and cuffs. The dress has a round neck with a placket in the back that closes with two tiny pearl buttons.
The dress is 10 inches long. The dress measures 3 1/4 inch from shoulder to shoulder. The sleeves are 2 3/4 inches long. The hem opening is 9 1/2 inches from side seam to side seam. There is one minuscule brown spot on the back near the hem.
The slip has a curved low neck with an empire silhouette. The bottom of the slip has a lace trimmed ruffle. There is a small 5/8 inch separation of the lace near the side seam of the slip. This is not damage to the lace but separation of the stitching that attaches the lace to the chemise and could be repaired carefully.
The slip has a length of 9 3/4 inches. It is 3 1/4 inches at the shoulders. The width at the empire waist is 4 1/4 inches. There is a placket at the back that secures with two tiny pearl buttons. Again the slip is hand stitched with lovely finished seams. There is one minuscule brown spot on the front near the middle of the skirt and a small gray spot on the hem near the lace.
