A late 1860's Day Dress... a delightfully sweet style for a lady to wear about the house. This pattern includes skirt, bodice, and bobbinet lace fichu/collar.
The dress is in two pieces, as the skirt and bodice are separate. The bodice has darts both front and back. It has optional corded piping around the neckline, waist and armholes. The full sleeve is headed with a separate cap sleeve. The skirt has five double box pleats, and gauging in the back. It is trimmed with narrow velvet ribbon, and also contains instructions on how to make her velvet belt. The bobbinet lace fichu has pleated pinked trimming on all sides, and fastens with a silk ribbon bow.
This pattern was made to fit a well proportioned French Fashion type doll, from 11.5" to 12" tall. It is shown on a doll with the Create A Doll leather lady body, but should be able to be worn by other 12" FF with minor adjustments. The doll is wearing underclothing made from my FF Underclothing Set Two pattern.
