Dressing a toddler baby or a large doll? Here's a charming country calico dress dating from the 1880-1890's Victorian era. The style is a simple dress, with a short yoke made of white dimity fabric, with the full skirt double pink calico.
A round neckline, with a ruffle is made of the pink calico edged in a machine novelty trim. Back closing with three white incised china buttons. An endearing style for your country pleasure.
The condition: Directly out of storage so you will find the white dimity is yellowed, with some oxidation staining. Also, a couple of marks on the calico. Also, a couple of small holes in the calico. Nothing more than the usual to expect with the age.
Measurements: Length of dress from the neck line to hem is 20-3/4" long. Shoulder to shoulder 7-3/4" across. Chest: 20" around. Sleeve length: 10" long. 6-1/2" around the edge of the cuff opening.
