Antique Doll Dress in Sage Silk, Visit to Venice
One of a Kind, size 16 or 17″ doll
This pure 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 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 rayon Venice lace and pure silk ribbon. It fastens in the back with snaps. I don’t have an antique doll this size so the dress is shown on a hard plastic doll, 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 this style in this green silk. This dress is a little flexible in size because of the style, and will fit a doll from 16″ to 17″ tall. It will fit either a ball jointed German body or a leather German body. French dolls are chubbier so it won’t fit a French doll, sorry.
There are no refunds or exchanges on my doll clothes so please be sure of the size when you order, you may call me any day between 12 noon and 10 PM at 360-836-7556 or email me with any questions, I am always glad to help you make the right choice.
