A sweet early 1900's calico doll dress in a faded white with red print. A baby doll style with tiny gathers attaching the full skirt to the bodice. Long sleeves with gathered ruffle at the wrist. Back opening fastens with two buttons to the gathers. Wide lace collar accents the neck line. Treadle machine and hand sewing.
Measurements: 14-1/2" long from the neck line to hem. 4" across from shoulder to shoulder. Chest 10" around. Center back from the neck line to the gathered skirt is 2-1/2" long. Skirt length is 12-1/4" long. Sleeve length is 6-1/2" long.
Condition: The design of the print is faded, with time and washings. Some areas, the red is completely washed out. So if you love worn, that show patina, this little dress is for you. As you will note, the lace collar also shows its wear with a number of holes. Creamy look to the white with some oxidation.
Darling to hang for display or dress a doll.
