3 piece costume for an early French fashion doll such as Huret or Blamploix in Enfantine style. Dresses are for a younger child rather than for an adult female fashion doll. Skirt length is mid calf instead of the adult floor length.
Set contains a blue fairly thick cotton skirt with double box pleats that is slightly longer in the back. It is not lined. It closes with one hook and bar in the back. The skirt is fully hand sewn. The over dress is made of blue and white cotton with blue cotton fringe trim, square low necked bodice, short split sleeves. The complete over dress is lined with very fine white cotton or silk gauze and closes with 2 metal hooks and bars in the back. The overdress is also fully handsewn. The ensemble is worn over a magnificent blouse with low inserted very puffy sleeves. The blouse front panel is made of stripes of lace and embroidered cotton batiste. The blouse has mother of pearl buttons with yarn loop closure in the back. Blouse is completely hand sewn.
Dress set is in good condition and free of soiling.
I have the ensemble shown on a repro gildebrief body of just over 12" or 30cm without shoulder plate. The right size doll for the costume would be around 16" or 41 cm. Doll body is NOT included in this sale.
Skirt length is just over 8" or 20.5 cm and just over 9"or 23 cm in the back skirt length of the over dress is just over 6" without the fringe. waist measured flat is just under 4" or 10 cm.
