This is one of my favorites....an ankle length ecru eyelet and lace empire waist dress for a 22-23 inch German or French antique doll. The epaulettes over the shoulders add a special touch as do the vertical strips of lace on the wrist length sleeves. There are vertical pleats on the front bodice. Rosettes of lace on each side of the bodice, orange ribbons and pearl-like buttons add enrichment to the dress that flows from the waist in soft gathers. Beautiful border lace is stitched to the scalloped eyelet skirt. The back opening has two pretty pearl buttons and a hook and eye at the waist for closure. The fabric and trim are all vintage or antique. There is one patch of the eyelet on the back that is professionally stitched and is not noticed unless you are looking for it. The dress is clean and has no odors.
MEASUREMENTS: Length from shoulder to bottom of skirt 16-3/4 in.; sleeve length 7-1/4 in.; around neck edge 8 in.; around lower sleeve opening 4 in.; around empire waist just above the natural waist line 12-1/2 in.; across back of shoulders 4-1/2 in.
CONDITION: Excellent, with no stains, tears, rips or odors. The only repair is the small professional patch with like material on the back of the skirt.
