3-Piece Blue Velvet and Lace Outfit for a Doll
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer....
AGE: C.1960 or so
ITEM: At one time, when I lived in Los Angeles, I sold porcelain dolls for a consignor. Once I left LA, I seemed to end up with one whose face I liked but who had a damaged body. Well, by the time I got to Missouri I found that the doll body really did not suffer the Colorado Rockies too well and ended up in pieces BUT the costume the little lady was wearing survived. So here it is, a 3 piece blue velvet outfit with hat and bloomers. The dress has a touch of lace at the bottom as well as 3 hand rolled silk roses decorations. The bloomers are satin acetate with lace and the hat is straw with blue velvet ends and fabric florals.
CONDITION: Very nice - very clean. Dress has a blue velvet sash that needs ironing. Hat has ties that need ironing. Back of the dress has no buttons or zipper - it was held together with just some straight pins. Bloomers have elastic at the waist and bottom.
SIZE: Using a ruler and making measurements on a straight line....
The dress measures 5-1/2" high from neck to bottom of lace. Neck measures 4". Shoulder to shoulder (seam to seam) measures 3" (I guess you could also say that's the chest size).
Bloomers measure 3-5/8" wide at the waist. Bottoms measure 2" wide. From top of waist to bottom of bloomer measures 4-3/8".
Hat has a width of 1-13/16" at the top. From left to right measures 2-3/4" wide at the widest part.
FINAL COMMENTS: I know some doll collector will want a nice outfit like this so I have priced it the best I can.
