Here is a sweet two piece vintage green velvet dress for French Fashion type doll bodies; it has always reminded me of Scarlett O'Hara's fashion 'curtain' dress. It is handmade with machine and some hand sewing mostly of silk velvet. Measurements are what I get flat across.
The skirt has some kind of black netting under it to give it more of a poof with little gold ribbon (?) detailing about the edge. The shirt is lined but the skirt is not. The shirt has a wide open collar to show off the shoulders.
As it is with most of my antique and vintage doll clothing, there is no closures to the reverse, they just used straight pins. It's weird, but that is how a lot of my older doll close were made; maybe because they wanted to be able to adjust the fitting? I don't know, I just always kept them this way and used the pins but it would be easy to add a hook, I guess, I just never bothered because the pins worked for my dolls.
As it is with most older items, there is some small wear but no tears or stains, there is some wear around the silk waist of the shirt. Please enlarge the photos in case I've missed something, please let me know.
This is an artist made dress and I don't know when it was made, it is unsigned/dated. It is a vintage item and as such may show minimal wear but it is as you see pictured and described.
