This is my final gown made in anticipation of the upcoming American Girl doll Caroline of 1812! Of course, this dress could be for any of your dolls you wish to dress in a Regency period fashion. I have chosen a premium reproduction cotton stripe in coral, ivory and blue. The bodice has the stripes positioned in a chevron, and for the cuffs the stripe is placed horizontally. The bodice is lined, and closes in the back with two small buttons and handworked button loops. The blue sash is made of pure silk. Interior seams are serged. My name label is sewn inside.
The hemline is edged with a pretty ivory lace. 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 of the back of the bodice 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!
