Purple Victorian Doll Dress to fit your 18 American Girl Doll #dollvictoriandressstyles
Purple Victorian Doll Dress to fit your 18 American Girl | Etsy | by Emmakate0There are many great pencil sketches of little girls from the Victorian era, and this ensemble for your 18" doll is based on a favorite of mine. It features German styling from the late 1900's that includes the gathered, high waisted bodice, puffy upper sleeves, an embroidered linen apron, a sleeveless blouse called a 'guimpe', and more. A master pattern maker, Hazel Ulseth, created some of the patterns worked with here. This 9 piece set includes: * Purple lightweight cotton print dress with lined bodice and square neckline, lined, puffed upper sleeves with cream dotted swiss over satin for the wide cuffs, delicate lace cuff trim, full gathered skirt, black gross grain ribbon rows of trim at the hemline and around the neck, and 2 charcoal pearly buttons for closure in back. * High neckline sleeveless blouse in cream dotted swiss lined in satin with lace to match the dress cuffs. It closes in back with 3 small matching buttonshe * Cream muslin underslip with lace hemline and elasticized waist. * Optional matching purple wool felt vest has short, wide sleeves with cutaways for the puffy dress sleeves, gross grain ribbon trim, thin velcro back closure, and satin ribbon lacing that is worked into elasticized loop specialty braid trim on the side fronts. The lacing makes it easy to adjust the vest to the fit and look you'd like. * Embroidered linen apron was made from antique to vintage era linen fabric...this is a piece I was waiting for the right outfit to combine it with. Please note you may see some slight discolorations in the linen, however, they are minor. * Pair of purchased black cotton stockings - just as a little girl would have worn with this winter dress. * Long, wide piece of black gross grain ribbon for dressing your doll without the vest and apron -- it creates a pretty sash that would be appropriate tied in back as seen in these photos or in front, off to one side. * Wide piece of black gross grain ribbon for your doll's hair. * Embroidery hoop with partial embroidery completed and a small needle for setting your doll up to practice her needlework skills! As always, all seams are professionally finished, and both a skirt and dress hanger will be added for storage. Black lace-up boots and patent leather shoe choices are available separately in this shop under 'Accessories'.
