This two-tone blue check dress for Kirsten features a simple round neckline. The full sleeves have navy blue rick rack at the edges. Kirsten’s mother would not have used elastic to gather the lower edges of her sleeves but would have used drawstrings. The small bows on the sleeves are there to simulate those drawstrings. A narrow strip of bias cut fabric adds interest to the bodice front. The dress opens in the back and is secured with Velcro. The dress can be worn with or without the separate apron. The simple light blue, chambray-like fabric would be ideal for a work apron for Kirsten to wear when she was doing chores. It fastens in the back with Velcro. There is a non-functioning button sewn on top of the Velcro. The navy blue hair ribbons are included.

I offer several other options for mid-1800 styles in the "Historical 1854, 1864" section of my shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/terristouch?section_id=5506837

Please note the following:
1. Although I made this outfit to fit 18” dolls such as those sold by American Girl, Gotz, Our Generation or Springfield Collection I am not affiliated with those companies.
2. My home is pet free and smoke free.
3. The doll and shoes in the photos are for display purposes only and are not for sale.
4. All seams that would fray have been serged.
