betsyformal1.jpg (161163 bytes)Here's a vintage 8" Betsy McCall pink and white formal gown---Sugar and Spice (B-61).  The dress is in good condition with no tears or stains.  However the dress is not pristine...the pink dots have faded some and there's some very light soiling to the bodice.  Shipping extra (about $4).  Doll is not included.  $20
betsywedding1.jpg (206126 bytes)betsywedding2.jpg (215421 bytes)Shown in the photos is a vintage 8" Betsy McCall white wedding dress (B-119).  This lot only includes the dress.  To be a complete wedding set, there should be the circular veil, a taffeta petticoat & panties, satin slippers and a bouquet.  The dress is in good condition with no tears.  The rayon satin fabric has yellowed some, but is nice because it gives the feel of candlelight satin.  Shipping extra (about $4).  Doll is not included.  $20


fancydress4.jpg (517941 bytes)fancydress1.jpg (579452 bytes)fancydress2.jpg (446007 bytes)fancydress3.jpg (722408 bytes)The dress shown to the left is on a large 26-27" reproduction Bru doll.  I got this dress as part of a box lot and thought I would offer it here.  As mentioned this is for a large French doll.  It is newer, made with nylon lace, polyester taffeta, and polyester picot-edged ribbon.  The base of the hat is a cinnamay woven hat, covered with the nylon lace.  The outfit and hat are nicely done and may be just what you want for your large French bebe doll!  Shipping is extra.    $20


AGunderwear.jpg (83329 bytes)I don't have an American Girl sized doll to measure, but I am thinking this might fit her.  The panties' elastic waist stretches to about 12".  Waist to crotch measure 4-1/4".  The T-shirt measures about 7-1/4" long.  Chest width, measuring across, is 5" (about 10" around).  Armholes, measuring doubled and flat are about 3" (or 6" around).  This is a very nice white cotton fabric and has never been used....brand new!  Shipping extra.  $5


schoenhutunderwear.jpg (133685 bytes)These two "long johns" look like they are a copy of the original underwear that comes with a Schoenhut doll.  This is vintage underwear....perhaps made in the 1970s or 1980s (not by me....they were part of a box lot I purchased).  In full disclosure, I have tried them on the few Schoenhut dolls I own and the fit is not right....a little long in the torso a 14" one, but I think using them on a bigger Schoenhut wouldn't work either because they don't stretch enough.  Let me give you measurements to see if you have a doll that's just right!  

Length from top to leg hem = 11".  Waist measuring flat = 3-3/4".  Top to crotch = 9".  Armholes measuring flat = 3".  Shipping extra.    $5 for both

This antique underwear set will fit a large French Fashion.  It is similar in size to the robe above---probably fitting a 24"-25" doll--but the underwear did not come with the robe.  The drawers are made of fine cotton or linen.  There's a tear in the fabric at the back closure area.  There are a few stains or age spots.  The petticoat also has some age spots (neither item has been laundered).  There are a few small splits or holes in the petticoat.    $20

Here are measurements for you to check:  Drawers waist = 10" unbuttoned.  Drawers length = 12".  Drawers crotch seam from front waistband to back waistband = 8".  Petticoat waist = 10-3/4" unbuttoned.  Petticoat length = 13-1/4".

These four antique garments came from the attic of a woman who owned several old dolls (for instance, an original Kestner Daisy, a Kestner 143 and others).  Among the dolls were two larger dolls....a Queen Louise doll and a Bergman doll, each about 25"-28" tall as I recollect.  At the auction, someone else got the dolls but I got these clothes that may have been intended for them.  Shown is a nicely made navy blue coat with black velveteen collar and black lining (double-breasted, with double "cape" collar below velveteen color, patch pockets, back belt), a pale blue dress (looks grayer in photos than in real life), a floral flannel robe with "frog" closure and a pink plisse/seersucker cotton nightgown.  The nightgown does have some very light tea-colored stains on the back.  All are in good vintage condition with no obvious tearing or holes but some slightly "raggedy" hems and necklines due to age and handling.  $75 for all 4 pieces

Here are some measurements to help you decide if these clothes will fit your doll:    

Coat:  16" Length, 16" sleeve-end to sleeve-end, 6" approximate shoulder width, 

Dress:  13" length.  13-1/2" sleeve-end to sleeve-end.  This dress has no back or front opening...only the hole in the neck, which might not even fit over the head of a bisque doll without some maneuvering.  I'm not sure it's ever been on a doll unless one took the doll's head off first!

Robe:  15" length, 15-1/2" sleeve-end to sleeve-end, 7" approximate neck opening

Nightgown--17" length, 12" sleeve-end to sleeve-end,13" neck circumference
