This is a lovely beige and blue silk Bebe Bru antique dress for an 18" doll (better suited for a kid body rather than Chevrot body Bru, or a kid body AT), due to the looser fit throughout the torso. While there is still much use for this dress, the silk has sadly melted in several areas. The aqua silk is a "china silk", and the aqua silk is silk satin. The antique china silk tends to deteriorate, especially due to the dyes used in the mid 19th century. The dress is entirely lined with gauze. 5” shoulder width; 10" length. Ice blue silk dress features jacket top with shirred beige silk plastron, flared collar and side pockets with piping detail, gathered sleeves with beige pleats and bands with lace trim, pleated skirt, tightly shirred back with bustle, gauze net lining and lace underskirt. Original frock in wonderful and typical Bru style; silk in poor condition on jacket and sleeves, two black ink stain spots on right side seam area. The lining was reinforced on either side of the dress where the silk had deteriorated.
