Mama Doll Dresses

The Mama doll dresses  featured here are for the antique composition, cloth body doll.  Because of design, Mama doll dresses are not form fitting and are a simple A line design that also fits many other cloth body dolls of the era.  The dresses  are made of cotton and cotton organdy and trimmed with cotton and antique lace of assorted styles.  The style is a copy of an actual Mama doll dresses were copied from an original dress.  The Mama doll dresses are sold in sets that dress and  pantaloons that are gathered at the bottom of the leg to cover the cloth portion of the leg. Many of the sets also include bonnets or matching ribbons. Because of the sheer nature of the lawn, organdy and voile cloth, it is suggested that a matching slip be worn underneath.  Many of the sets also come with the slip.  Dress and slips are fastened with a gold safety pin.  This is how most were sold originally because of the variety of dolls and sizes the dresses were used on.  The pins allow for easy adjustment. Dress and slips are available in sizes 20-30.

Brass Buckle Dress n Jumper

Cute antique doll dress with matching bloomers or jumper !    The photos do not do justice to the authentic details of the fabric  because you can not really see the subtle old rose print and accents of the 100% cotton fabric. The rose colored flat lace and looped ruche trim is old stock from the 1920’s  and 1930’s!  Both dress and jumper  are  accented with brass buckles that accessorize the hang tabs on the shoulders and the belt at the waist. The inspiration for the doll dress and doll jumper was taken from a vintage catalog and are as authentic as you can get, coming from Germany a couple of years ago when I was in Sonneberg.

The brass buckle dress n jumper is appropriate for American made composition dolls such as the Mama doll modeling the dress.  The jumper is appropriate for American made composition dolls, such as toddler types and boy dolls,  as well as the German toddler  dolls modeling in the photos.  The age of the dolls wearing the brass buckle dress n jumper are  close in age by just a few years, essentially 1920’s.  The model dolls are a 1927 Dolly Rekord Mama doll and a Simon Halbig 122B flirty eyed black doll on a toddler body. .

Available in the same fabric as the brass buckle dress n jumper is a matching bonnet or large organdy bow, both common of the era for these dolls.
