"Petite Floral" for Pauline Himstedt by OCL

"Who said red heads can't wear pink"?

Pauline is modeling "Petite Floral" a 3 piece ensemble designed to fit Himstedt dolls with a chest/waist measurement of up to 16 1/2 inches. The finished length of the dress is 16 inches.

The dress is made from a pretty dusty rose calico printed with petite flowers in a darker rose and cream. The dress has a peter pan style collar that is trimmed with hand dyed venise lace. The short sleeves are trimmed with the same hand dyed lace and the elastic is enclosed in a casing made from the coordinating pinafore fabric. The darker fabric used in the pinafore also forms a band where the bodice meets the dress skirt. It is accented with a removable bow. A very full ruffle is attached to the bottom of the dress skirt. The dress fastens at the bodice back with buttons embossed with a delicate rose.

The pinafore is made from a coordinating fabric of a deep burgandy printed with petite flowers in a dusty rose. It has an empire waist accented with a removable bow. The pinafore buttons at the bodice back with deep cranberry buttons and the hem has been sewn in by hand so there are no unsightly stitches showing.

Although Pauline is quite modest she agreed to give you a peek at her bloomers. They have been made from the darker calico and each leg is trimmed with hand dyed venise lace. The elastic in the waist and legs are all encased.

This oufit offers several dressing options. The dress alone, with the pinafore, with or without the bloomers and she can even wear the pinafore as Summer dress. The bows on the dress and pinafore are removable so can be interchanged or not worn at all or perhaps worn as hair bows.
