Here's a primitive cute doll dress from the early 1900's.  Made of a red and white stripe fabric, the dress is both hand sewn and machine treadle stitched.  The front of bodice is made of white cotton embellished with 14 rows of vertical tucks.

Bodice back is the red and white stripe fabric, as is the skirt.  The red and white stripe fabric is run horizontally as an insert panel on the front of skirt, which makes a nice detail.  The back of the dress buttons with two black and white calico buttons and one china.  Very cute.  Button holes are hand worked.  Sleeves are long straight.

Would fit a china or tin head doll nicely.

Length of dress is 15" long.  4-1/2" across from one shoulder to the other.  9" around the chest.  9" around the waist.  Skirt length from the waist to hem is 11-1/2" long.  3" sleeve length.

Condition:  Is good.  You'll find a couple of tiny holes but no major stains or damage.  Just what you would normally expect for the age. 

So suitable for a primitive doll dress collection or dressing an old doll
