~Collector's Choice~Rare Crepe Silk Half Slip Covered In Hand Embroidery c.1880
Costume your favorite girl with this exquisite antique half slip, in a most luxurious raw silk crepe. I haven't seen one quite like this before and I know that it will make a classic, priceless addition to any costume closet. Fabulous all hand-done embroidery decorates the majority of the piece, in large lively flowers and vines, with scalloped edging detailing the bottom hem. Combined with the silk crepe base, the embroidery gives the piece a lovely weight, making it much more than just a simple bit of clothing; it makes an elegant fashion statement, for the best of your dolls should be well-adorned, from gown to slippers to petticoat. Completed with a cotton waist band as the silk simply wouldn't have held up, a pin will be required to close the waist. This piece will look lovely on a larger bisque Bebe doll, considering the waist circumference.
Waist Circumference: 16"
Condition: Fabulous original condition. Expected and typical overall age wear. A fabulous piece that will truly show off your tastes for the exquisite.
