This is another pretty piece, a blue gingham blouse, from the old found doll trunk. The blouse is adorable with puffed sleeves, embroidered lace yoke front and back, lace wrists and eyelet wings on the shoulders. It needs some hooks and eyes or snaps on the back. The measurements are: 4" across the shoulders, 6" shoulder to wrist, 6" from shoulder to hem. The bottom is unfinished but would have gone under a skirt. I have shown it here with a pretty white slip and it will look great with a white skirt. It is in excellent condition.
There was another skirt, ribbed silk, from the trunk that may have gone with this top because of the same cream color ribbon on the blouse. I will include it (virtually as free) but it is has damage; the skirt needs pleating on the other side, a new waist band and there are some flea bites. The inside in beautifully sewn and lined with cotton muslin. The waist is 3" flat across the front, and 9" waist to hem. A good sewer might be able to do something with it; it is old and authentic. See last 3 pics. The straw hat with dried flowers and long blue silky edged ribbons is vintage, label says made in the peoples republic of china so mid century. It looks really cute with blue gingham. The inside of the hat is 3" in diameter.
