Dotted Swiss Doll Dress

This dotted Swiss doll dress is a copy of a Circa 1880 child doll dress.   Made of a semi-sheer dotted Swiss voile, the dress is quite elegant. Accenting the dotted Swiss doll dress is a panel of eyelet down the front and around the eyelet skirt. Puffed sleeves are roomy enough for both leather bodies and ball jointed body dolls.  As a final touch, tie backs have been added for just the right fit.     NOTE:  Eyelet styles change with the larger sizes. Slip recommended for semi-sheer garments.  As seen photo shown with drop waist cotton slip also available.    Hats available in selected sizes with your choice of flowers $15 upon request.

White Fabric

White fabric was commonly used for dolls and people clothing.  Colored fabric of the period was not Color Fast so quickly faded with each wash. White fabric was easily bleached and stayed nicer  longer. With the average person having only a few pieces of clothing, it was important to make clothing last and pass on to siblings.

All  fabric shown is Lawn or Quilt weight and of premium quality.    Designs include a raised (Jacquard) pattern, sewn on (embroidered) or machine enhanced (open weave).   These subtle designs create lovely, understated, elegant doll clothing.  White fabric lends itself well yo most designs.  To flash up the outfit printed fabric can be added for color. Also available is white Organdy in soft and stiff, which is excellent for collars, bonnets and aprons.

Some of the dresses offered at Antique Child featuring this fabric are shown throughout the site.

Eyelet dress in drop waist style Eyelet dress in white cotton has long been a staple for Victorian children and doll wear. Made in a traditional dropped waist style, the eyelet dress is made with 100% cotton.  Because tastes are different, most dresses and bonnet selections are custom with fabric choices in lawn, voile, eyelet and dotted Swiss fabrics.   Sizes available 12-30. If you have a custom size or style you like, choose closest size and I will send you a form to note measurements. 

The drop waist dress is appropriate for most German and French doll.  It first appeared  during the 1910’s as a depart from the restricted styles of the Victorian age.  The style displays straight silhouettes, vertical lines and an apparent lack of a waistline.  Thanks to the flappers of the 1920’s,  the hemline went up so that most were just below the knee.
