This doll dress is made from a very soft fabric...almost feels like flannel but is more delicate. Both hand and machine stitching went into the making of it many years ago...probably early 1900s-1930s. The background is a brown design like checked which lies host to some lovely purple/lavender flowers. This would look nice on a rag doll or china head. It is about 12" long, the neck opening is about 2" across and it needs to be pinned in back to close as many early clothes were made. Nice overall condition with no flaws. Dolly will love this one!!
