Three pieces of doll underlinens ~ period underwear for your Victorian doll. The soft, near pristine muslin all-in-one is a petticoat with an attached bodice. The waist is cartridge pleated for fullness and the neckline and armscythes are piped in muslin. It has a sweeping hem trimmed in dainty crochet lace. Back closure with no buttons, hooks or snaps as designed and made. This piece would have been pinned or sewn to dolly. This all-in-one is in very fine condition, 10 1/2" long shoulder to hem; 14" chest. Hand stitched.
Next is an intricately loomed linen petticoat with a growth pleat. The fabric is wonderful, with a plaid pattern woven in. It is woven in with the same linen threads, so the only color difference is how the warp and the weft show. Broad cartridge pleats around the waist and a wide waist band. 9" long from top of waistband to hem; 8" waist approximate. Back closure with no buttons, hooks or snaps as designed and made; this would have been pinned or sewn to the doll. The petticoat has signs of age, use and storage, in some small, scattered age pinhead dots and a couple of larger, dark spots. The nice thing about this petticoat is how the hem design mimics petticoats made for real children with growth pleats built in. Machine and hand stitched.
The third item in this group ~ drawstring drawers. Trimmed in Valenciennes lace, they are machine stitched with a very early, hand-stitched repairs along the seams. In very good condition with one little discolor mark inner left thigh, and 2 or 3 tiny pinhead spots from age.
