A beautiful gown that effortlessly blends the early Victorian/Civil War Era open collar, bell sleeve and ball gown length with a sensual and sassy fantasy appliqué work that was of the seamstress or tailor's own invention, the gown is a gorgeous work of wearable art! The piece measures approximately 24" from top to bottom (depending on where you want the skirt to fit the waist, this measurement can go up or down.) It is perfect for a 28-31" doll!
CONDITION: EXCELLENT NEAR MINT condition. Superb vintage condition free of any tears, stains, rips or other imperfections. There is a bit of dirt on the skirt. Other than that, you simply won't be able to put this piece from your mind. It would make a striking and singular addition to any lady's trousseau!
