Description

Please note: I am in NO way affiliated with American Girl, Springfield, Our Generation, or any doll making company. The items here are NOT an endorsement by any of the companies, they are simply dresses that fit these sized dolls. Thank you for understanding.

For your consideration is this coral circa 1865 doll dress. It is based on a dress that is from the Wisconsin Historical Society. I don't know if the dress is available on display in the museum but you can find it on their website.

The dress is made from 100% cotton peach/coral fabric and trimmed with narrow black satin ribbon.

The bodice is hand pleated as are the sleeves and skirt.

The wide boat neck was common for young children during that era.

The dress closes up the back with Velcro.

The dress is for dolls such as American Girl, Gotz, My Twinn, and other soft bodied dolls.

The listing is for the dress ONLY. The doll and accessories are NOT included.

All items come from a smoke free, but not pet free home. I have cats but make sure my items are as cat hair free as possible.

All items ship first class mail with tracking. If you desire a different shipping option please let me know and I will adjust it for you.

This seller offers period styles that others do not. I had been looking for a Cape Island for our Addy for a long time and was thrilled when TheEdwardianGirl offered it. It was shipped promptly and arrived as described. Thank you!
