Here's a simple brown calico long doll dress in a small scale dot fabric. A suitable dress for a china, paper mache or tin head doll, it is from the 19th Century.  All hand stitched, the dress is a fitted style, with gored panels.  It has a simple round neck line, long sleeves and a 2" wide ruffle at the hem.  The cuff of the sleeve and the banded ruffle is trimmed with a narrow solid red fabric. No fastenings at the back opening. 

Size:  From the neck line to the hem it is 17" long.  4-3/4" across from shoulder to shoulder.  Sleeve length is 3-5/8" long.  Cuff opening is 2" circumference.  9-1/2" around the chest.  9" around the waist.

Condition:  A few frays of fabric on the front of bodice.  At one shoulder seam, the thread has broken and would need restitched.  A simple task.  A fading spot on ruffle near one side.  For the age very decent condition.   

An endearing textile for a country primitive or farm house home.
