This is a rare early doll gown - in fact it is a piece of regency / Georgian costume in miniature size so would appeal to collectors of antique costume as well as to doll lovers.

The skill in the stitching is, as is often the case in these early pieces, quite mind-boggling. All done by hand, with no electric light, and you can hardly see the stitches they are so small with the most tiny pleats at the waist! Wow. It is in a plain yet elegant style in cotton with an almost empire line waist, puffed sleeves, broderie anglais trim to neck and sleeves, and pin-tucks to the hem. It is accompanied by its matching full length petticoat in the perfect length to complete the set. There is the tiniest hole to the front hidden in the pleats at the front, and a pin hole or two hidden in the volume of one sleeve at the back. To all intents and purposes, on display it appears perfect.

A Grodnertal, early wooden or slit head wax doll would look amazing wearing this dress. Just wish I had a doll to fit it!

Measurements of the gown are:15 inches front neck to hem
3 inches across the waist (button rather than drawstring, so not adjustable.)
4 inch across the drop neck line
1.5 inch across arm holesThe full length petticoat to match has a drawstring neck and waist and broader pin tucks to the hem. I am happy to ship internationally. Thanks for viewing them!
