ANTIQUE DOLL DRESS SAGE SILK SIZE 21-22″ DOLL
This silk dress is made for an antique doll in a style that is a copy of an antique doll dress, as most of my dresses for antique dolls are. During the 44 years or so I was in the antique doll business I photographed many original antique dresses and still have many books picturing original factory dresses for the antique bisque head doll. I use these resources to create authentic style dresses for them. I don’t use any polyester for the dresses or trim. This dress is trimmed in English cotton lace with rayon Venise lace and pure silk ribbon. It fastens in the back with snaps. It is shown on a dress form over a dropped waist slip. ( Sold separately). If you read old doll catalogs and see a dress with the description of the dress or trim as “imitation silk”, that would be rayon– it came into common use and was used a great deal on dolls after the turn of the 20th century, because it was less expensive than silk. There is only one dress in this style in this green silk.
My antique style dresses are made to fit German bisque dolls, with either composition jointed body or leather body. The French dolls were chunkier and my clothes will not fit them unless so stated.
