Lovely Pink and Ecru Checked Silk Two Piece Lady Doll Dress. The outfit would suit a china, parian, French Fashion or a paper mache.
It looks to be handmade in the 1920's or 30's in a very professional manner and should fit a larger doll approximately 24-25 inches tall. The antique trim around the collar, sleeves, front closing, as well as the hem line on the top and skirt. The beautiful ecru buttons are antique cloth buttons that have three loops for closure. The top is lined with ecru cotton fabric. The top is darted at the waist in the front and back. There is an inverted pleat at the mid-back. I regret that there are some holes in the back of the skirt and some sun fading, probably from exposure to sunlight while displayed. Sunlight eventually fades and weakens silk. However, there is tight ruching of the skirt fabric just below the waistband and the skirt has enough fabric that a seamstress could remove this portion of the skirt and use the remaining fabric and waistband. The top or jacket has a bit of fading also but the structure seems fine. The top has a few small holes down the right sleeve and 3 very small bites in the fabric but they are so tiny you would not see them as a problem. The band on the right sleeve has come loose from the sleeve, and this would be an easy fix.
