A 15-17 in. French bebe will be suitable for wearing this lovely antique neutral ecru shade silk brocade dress. The drop waist style is very creatively adorned with the use of French lace, silk pungee and satin ribbon. The satin ribbon creates an opening on one side giving it a hidden closure. The dress is completely lined in ecru cotton. The sleeves and hem edges have rouching made of the silk pongee. There is a silk twisted rope trim that gracefully hangs over the lace trim across the front. of the skirt. The antique hat is fluffy with gathered crinoline ruffles trimmed with cotton lace and scattered ribbons and flowers, all in line with the theme of the neutral ecru shades of the dress.
