For an elegant touch, the empire waistline has a sash made of pure silk ribbon, and ties in a long tailed bow in the back.
I have made the dress short enough for your doll's pantalettes to show. My doll's pantalettes are riding on her hips, rather than her waist, to make them ankle length, as was the custom for girls in the early 1800s.
Also included is a narrow matching blue pure silk ribbon to tie onto your doll's neck for a simple choker.
An additional view - a close-up of the bodice back - can be seen on my flickr page:
This will ship first class in a box, U.S. orders with delivery confirmation. For sale is the gown and neckline silk ribbon. My doll and any other accessories stay with me!
