Discounts considered for multiple 'twin' purchases in the interest of "keeping them in the family" as they were presented years ago.
Darling set is Mommy made from the 1930's vintage pattern exclusively for Dy-Dee dolls. These sweet babies were so popular back in the 1930's and 1940's. Remember, the full effects of the Great Depression were upon us, and families had few dollars to spend on luxuries like toys and Baby Dolls. Everyone knows the factory outfits are desirable, but not everyone could afford to buy the extra outfits for Dy-Dee. Prudent and wise, Effanbee contracted to have patterns made so Mom and Grandma and Aunties could sew beautiful trousseaus for a lucky little girl's Dy-Dee.
OFTEN TIMES I have found these clothing items to be EXTRA SPECIAL and ESPECIALLY WELL MADE, considering most women knew how to wield a needle and thread, along with their treadle sewing machines. THERE IS NO EXCEPTION to this group of TWIN CLOTHES I am offering now. Some wonderful relative sewed ALL these clothes for TWIN dolls . WHAT A TREASURE this must have been to present on perhaps a Christmas Day for two little girls. BUT, they remain to this day CLEAN, PRISTINE and UNPLAYED with... so now you are the fortunate girl...
Pure White and PRISTINE cotton batiste LONG GOWN (Christening) and matching BONNET #2
