Let the 1860's doll fashions begin! I tried to base these off of real dresses from the era in my books collection.
I think Addy looks great in blue. I used faux pearls for the button details.
I've sold one of these dresses to a friend but the other is available here on my Etsy page. https://www.etsy.com/listing/223623650/two-of-a-kind-civil-war-era-doll-dresses
Caroline in some vintage print and vintage trim. I really like how well the colors look with Caroline's coloring and eyes. The cotton trim was given to me and it works great for doll clothes. The "buttons" are genuine rose quartz beads.
I have three of these available for sale here on my Etsy page. https://www.etsy.com/listing/223628853/three-of-a-kind-vintage-floral-and-lace
I love how Josefina looks in pink. American Girl should really give her some pink clothing. **Hint, hint American Girl.**
This dress is one of a kind as I didn't have enough fabric to make a second. The "buttons" are genuine rose quartz beads.
It is available for sale on my Etsy page here. https://www.etsy.com/listing/223629637/ooak-pink-civil-war-era-doll-dresses
Until next time: reality is what you make of it so have fun!
