Antique Ivory Silk dress for a size 12 Jumeau or 26" - 27" doll Probably 1880-1890 era
Beautiful made with tiny pleats on the bodice, lace bertha style collar with lace trim. Very full skirt calf length with a double ruffle at the bottom with lace trim.
This is an antique dress and not newly made. It is however in a extremely wonderful condition with no melting to the silk, no holes, no tears. Absolutely crisp and clean condition. You will not find such wonderful quality again soon.
Bodice is partly lined with a very soft, probably silk gauze. Dress closes in the back with mother of pearl buttons and yarn loops.
It is shown on a size 12 Jumeau which is a perfect fit. It could fit a size bigger doll but only when it has small or cupped hands as the opening at the wrist is not adjustable and is a tight fit for my size 12.
Shoulder to hem 21" or 53 cm chest measured across (sleeve insert to sleeve insert) 7 1/2" or 19 cm opening at the wrist 5 1/2" or 14 cm around Neck opening just under 10" or 25cm around waist measured flat 11" across or 29 cm,A satin ribbon is wrapped around the waist to make it a tight fit.
