Here's a charming doll dress from the late Victorian - 1890's era.  The dress is treadle machine sewn, at home, in a maroon and white print calico fabric.  Bodice front is gathered to form soft pleats down the front.  It has a rounded neck line and long sleeves with ruffle at the wrist.  The back opening fastens with hook and thread loops to the waist line.  Bodice is also lined with a linen fabric.  Full skirt with two decorative stitch lines near the hem.

Measurements:  14-3/4" long from the neck line to the hem.  Width across the shoulders from side to side is 4-1/2".  9-1/4" around the waist.  5-1/4" length sleeve.  Wrist opening is 3" circumference.  6-1/2" circumference around the neck opening.  

Condition:  A little bit of fading of the fabric at the neck line and on the top of sleeves.  A broken thread loop at the neck line for fastening the dress. Two small holes in the skirt and one small 1/4" long straight tear in the front of skirt.  You can tell the holes have been there for a very long time, as the fabric is somewhat frayed around the hole.  Even with the flaws, I consider very minor.

Dress would be suitable for a cloth, tin, paper mache  or perhaps even a bisque doll.
