Clothes for Antique Dolls and Collectible Dolls
Okay Folks, I may have listings up on eBay, I list dolls, doll clothes and doll furniture, and some other stuff, click on my eBay ID above!!
This is for an exquisite outfit hand-tailored in pure silk Dupion and completely lined for a 30"-32" antique doll. There are three pieces a fully lined dress with attached petticoats (2) a sensational ostrich plumed and rose trimmed with faux fur bonnet and a cape with a brooch fastening.
The whole outfit was made by a superb seamstress Eliza Bobkins I have rarely seen such incredible workmanship, and exceptional detailing must have taken forever to make!
1. The dress - This is superbly tailored with a drop vee-waist. It fastens at the front with a concealed zip and silk-covered buttons. The sleeves are trimmed as shown and all the inner sleeve buttons fasten with silk loops which all open! I have added a photo to show this as it severely impressed me.
The front skirt is again trimmed in the same fashion as the sleeves with a silk braided hem. The back has a wonderful sweeping train, again trimmed and surmounted with a huge bow. The neckline is trimmed with an antique lace collar. Please see photos for all three pieces or I could be here all day.
2. The Hat This is wonderfully made from pure silk dupion and trimmed with grey ostrich feathers and a large pink silk rose, the brim is outlined with faux mink again the whole bonnet is lined with silk.
3. The Cape This is in pure silk dupion and is fully lined, trimmed with faux mink and fastens with a lovely brooch.
All these pieces are marked with Eliza Bobkins personal label.
