A pretty doll dress with gathered puffy sleeves trimmed in little lace about the collar as well with antique lace going down either side of the gown, then the antique piece comes up around the doll's head like a veil. There are 4 covered buttons on the reverse.
This dress can be puffed out with the right under garments, or lays flat without it. The dress is in pretty good condition for the age, there are some small holes here and there but I could not find any stains or repairs. I would date the dress to about 1920-1940 maybe and the lace embellishment with snood or veil was added later, it is about late 1800s
You see it modeled on a 22" doll but depending on where you want the hem to fall, it might be usable on a taller bebe. It measures flat approximately 17" long, 5 1/2-6" across the waist, 6 1/2" sleeve if they are ungathered, with a 21" sweep across the bottom.
