Little House on the Prairie Style Dress and Sunbonnet in Pink Gingham Reproduction Costume Hand Made
LAST CALL! 50% OFF! Offered is a prairie style long dress and modified sunbonnet very much like those worn on Little House on the Prairie. It is a pretty little thing in pink gingham. This appears to be handmade from a vintage pattern. We assume that it was made for a small town centennial style celebration as it is too complex for a Halloween costume. It could have been for a stage production, also. It is not uncommon here in the Midwest to have these celebrations, although ours were mostly at the sesquicentennial stage (175 years). The dress has elbow length sleeves with ruffled edges and trimmed with a 1/4" black velvet ribbon and 1/2" white lace. We find the same combination at the neckline. The fitted bodice tips to a small "V" at the front. The gatehred skirt is decorated with the ribbon and lace band about 2/3 of the way down. The modified sunbonnet has a 4" ruffled brim then the black ribbon and white lace. It has two sets of ties--one for under the chin and one to anchor it at the back. Details: back 22" zipper; 11" sleeve; 14 1/4" shoulder to waist (this seem short-waisted to us); 34" bust; 27 3/4" waist; 14 1/4" across back; on our model, this does not reach the floor. The hat is 7" deep and 16" across. This has been machine washed and dried and it did not require ironing. No stains, no holes. Item 1105b
