Lot of early 1900 beautiful and unique pieces which consists of a dress with a chemise and matching drawers, two lovely dropped waist dresses and a petticoat available for your consideration.

The lovely layered dress is made from a type of material/netting with embroidered flowers on the split sleeves and yoke (neckline area) of the dress. Along the gathered yoke of the dress, “train track” patterned trim connects the yoke of the dress to the bodice. The color of the dress has aged to a deep beige with a hue of gray. The skirt of the dress has a double layer of netting to create additional fullness. The satin ribbon that trims the dress and forms its decorative bows is beginning to melt and fall from the dress. Since antique satin melts as it ages, restoring what remains might be a challenge. Replacing the ribbon would be relatively easy. There is a small hole in the netting on the back of the dress along the bottom edge of the skirt. This lovely dress is in wonderful condition considering its age. There are no closures on any of the dresses offered in this sale.

Measurements:

*Shoulder to bottom of dress – 11.5”

*Front neckline to waist - 5"

*Waist to hemline - 6"

*Waist – 10”

*Length of sleeve (neckline to tip of sleeve) - 4.5”

*Neck opening – 10”

*Arm opening – 4.25”

The chemise and matching drawers are made from a thin cotton fabric which has aged in color to a deep ivory. A gentle soak could possibly brighten the pieces. Matching lace appears on the bottom edge of the chemise and the drawers, while the lace at the neckline and arm openings are of a different design and type of lace. The lace at the neckline is quite delicate and shows some wear and a few small holes. There is also a hole in the lace at the bottom of the chemise. The drawers are tied at the waist with a drawstring. Both pieces have a few small pinholes.

Measurements for Chemise:

*Shoulder to bottom of chemise including the lace – 10.5”

*Waist – 8”

*Arm opening - 2”

*Neck opening – 8.75”

Measurements for Drawers:

*Waist – 8” to 10”

*Leg length from waist – 6”

*Leg inseam – 3.25”

The first dropped waist dress is constructed from a more durable cotton fabric and has also aged a bit more evenly in color. (This fabric take me back to my own childhood. It is so reminiscent of the fabric used by my grandmother to make her own pillowcases.) This lovely dress has two types of lace. The narrower lace trims the neckline, the sleeves, the bodice, the dropped waist and the bottom of the dress. There is also a gorgeous wide lace that finishes the bottom of the dress. The dress is not without flaws. The fabric has aged in color and has a light spot on the “belly” of the dress. The wide lace has a hole near the left backside and some of the lace has come loose and needs to be stitched. In spite of these flaws, it is truly quite lovely.

Measurements:

*Shoulder to bottom of dress including the lace – 10”

*Waist – 12”

*Length of sleeve (neckline to tip of sleeve) - 4.25”

*Neck opening – 7”

The second dropped waist dress made from a very thin linen/gauze fabric has the same lace trimming the sleeves, neckline and dropped waist. The dress has aged unevenly in color and possibly a gentle soak may return it to its former beauty. Due to the age and delicacy of the fabric, there are a few flaws. The top of the left sleeve has some damage in the form of a tear/hole. There is a small ½ inch split in the fabric on the front of the dress (about 3 ½ inches below the neckline). The front and back of the dress have a few very small pinholes. Nevertheless, a lovely dress!

Measurements:

*Shoulder to bottom of dress including the lace – 11.5”

*Dropped Waist – 9”

*Length of sleeve (neckline to tip of sleeve) - 4.25”

*Neck opening – 7.25”

The cotton petticoat is trimmed in crocheted lace. The only damage appears to be on the waistband. There are some excess threads on the front of the waistband and a slit in the back to possibly make an opening for a button. There is no button present.

Measurements:

*Top of the waistband to the bottom of the lace – 9”

*Width of the waistband – 1”

*Length of the waistband – 8.5”

These early 1900 unique dresses, chemise, drawers, and petticoat may have been made for a doll or dolls with an approximate height of 14”-19” inches. Please be sure to check the dress measurements to see if they would be a good fit for your dolls.

Note: These three beautiful dresses, chemise, drawers, and petticoat came to me from the daughter of the original owner. The daughter states that her mom would have played with these clothing pieces in the 1910s. Some of these pieces may have been commercially made while others were sewn by her great grandmother. Beautiful and unique pieces for your antique doll!
