Stunning in every way with no detail left unregarded, this sweet little ensemble is perfect for the size one fashion lady in your life. Probably made by a loving mother a distinct eye for individual fashion, this early dress is not quite like everything else out there; the bold eyelet on that rich navy blue that has not faded a TOUCH is just striking! Completed by a perfect silk belt, fancy box pleated dust ruffle skirt, two massive bows and that matching, defining front line box pleat, this is a very sweet costume for any lady's trousseau. Additionally, it is notable that the top is reversible; it can be worn with the opening to the back like this to create more of a visiting ensemble look, or it can be worn with the opening to the front and a white shirt underneath for more of a walking ensemble feel. We couldn't decide which way we liked it better! Your ladies will enjoy it for years to come. *Missed the piece you wanted in the sale?

Rubylane won’t ~officially~ let us add anything else to the tag sale- but we have slashed prices SERIOUSLY on everything from bonnets to $10,000 bebes! Grab ‘em while they’re still around!*
Measurements: Around 12.5" top to bottom Waist is about 8.5" Shoulder to SHoulder 4.5"
Condition: Very good condition! Very very minor holes here and there, a bit of wear at the cuffs, but overall, a no nonsense, beautiful ensemble for your very best lady! Also notable, there are no closures, we have closed it with pins, this is always a good thing for these outfits, incase you decide to switch the dolls that wear them, so the size is freer.
*And our lovely model for this dress is currently available for sale in our shop! She is a true darling and has had a lot of interest, but she is still waiting for a new home! We can even do free shipping for her in this dress along with her other blue and cream floral print day dress for the discerning collector who would like to add both lovely pieces to their collection! See her at RLI-944!*
**We now ship EVERY SINGLE ONE of our antique costume pieces in archival, museum quality, acid free tissue paper. We store them in an acid free, climate controlled environment, because we want you to get a textile that has been frozen in time. As curators of these antiques, we want them to be as fresh for the next generation of students and enthusiasts as they were for us. This is factored into the price of our merchandise. We hope you can enjoy these rare finds for years to come, and we want to make sure that when they reach you, they are ready for careful love and display if you so chose, or to be stored in a destruction-free paper. Happy shopping!**
