No French Bebe is complete without a stunning costume- and why not pamper your favorite size 9 bebe with a true antique made for her in France around 1892? This beautiful cotton dress is a fine and supple organdy, with a gossamer quality that creates the most perfect light and flowing drape. Elegant pink flowery print has delicately faded to pastel and rose colors that just pop. Delicate lace trim down the front, and along the sleeves, while two rows of tucking decorate the skirt create that perfect bebe ruffle. A simple ribbon tie completes the ensemble. This piece is a true beauty, a wonderful dress that will look simply sublime on the bebe of your choice.
~We can offer up to two months to pay for this dress in multiple payments. Just give us a call anytime at 718.859.0901 to discuss layaway terms or to hear an in hand description with additional measurements if necessary.~
Length: 13" Waist Circumference: Approximately 12" Collar to Waist: 4.5" Shoulder to Shoulder: 4.5" Our model is 19", and she is not for sale.
Condition: Wonderful. The cotton fabric is very fine in excellent structural condition, giving it a lovely feel and texture, without being too prone to easy tear or wear. The lace has held up beautifully over time, with subtle and delicate netting and edging designs. There is some minor watermarking on the left shoulder and the tiniest bit at the chest (hardly noticeable), but we must understand that minor age signs such as this are to be expected in a 125 year old textile. Overall this piece will make a beautiful addition to the wardrobe of your favorite 20" lady.
**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!** LBS
