I offer this truly antique cotton gown or dress for a larger wax doll. This is the type of dress most often seen on the beautiful poured wax dolls. It has the most beautiful cotton eyelet trim at the front bodice. It has tucks on the short cap sleeves and several types of flat cotton trim to enhance both the skirt and the hemline. The neckline and the waist have drawstrings inserted for fitting the doll. Tiny cotton lace finishes the neckline. A lot of work went into perfecting this lovely white gown or dress. I believe it was made for an English wax doll but being so adaptable with the drawstring waist and neck opening, it could be used for other dolls as well. I see only two small stains at the bottom of the skirt where the hemline is turned up. I have laundered and ironed the gown but I did not use special products to try to remove the stains. It is sturdy and without weakness in the fabric, lace or trim. This beautiful garment will be shipped in a box and not a padded bag.
Condition: Excellent with only the two small stains mention.
Measurements: Total length shoulder to hem: 20 in.; around neckline: 12.5 in. (adjustable); around waist: 15.5 in. (adjustable) around sleeve opening: 3.5 in.
