This extraordinary costume from Mary Lambeth made with Vintage fabrics and with silk velvet. The original jacket was transformed into a waistcoat by Emily and the entire costume that came undecorated, was completely adorned by Emily with custom made Antique style ribbon flowers and rare vintage Metallic trim, as well as the Ivory Vintage corded trim that dates from the 1800’s.

Formerly, I had this doll listed with same costume in full length. I have shortened the dress and petticoat and made a fabulous overlay of Genuine Antique lace.

Undergarments are bloomers and half slip in 100% cotton.

Silk/rayon hand knitted socks and silk shoes in the French style complete this lovely doll.

She stands 18.5 inches tall excluding the bonnet.
