Short enfantine style dress for Huret or early French fashion doll such as Blamploix.
Dress is made of cotton with woven stripes of purple on gray. Bodice is lined with very fine white cotton or silk gauze. Dress has a pointed front with bretelles style straps over the shoulder. The straps are split at the shoulder and finished with prple fringe. Skirt has a nice decoration of prrple fringe as well. Dress closes in the back with 2 hooks and bars. Dress is hand sewn. It comes with a sleeveless white cotton batiste blouse / chemise that has a draw string closure on the neck. It has beautiful embroidery and tucks on the front.
Both the dress and blouse are clean. The chemise has some tiny holes at the waist line but do not show when the dress is put on.
Dress should be worn over a hoop skirt or petticoats that are NOT included in this sale. I have the skirt stuffed with tissue for the picture, which works fine if you don't have the hoop skirt.
I have the dress shown on a repro gildebrief body of just over 12" or 31 cm. The appropriate doll would be around 16"or 41 cm. Body is NOT included in this sale.
Skirt length just over 8" or 20.5 cm. Waist measured flat just under 4" or 9.5 cm
