1930's Factory Original Effanbee Dy-Dee Pink Organdy Dress
Commonly referred to as the "3-Button Flounce" Dress
Made to fit your 15" Dy-Dee
Made of pink cotton organdy, with puffed short elasticized sleeves, and featuring a gathered flounce collar; collar is embellished with three evenly-spaced tiny mother-of-pearl buttons. Closes at the back with two buttons. Includes its matching double-ruffled bonnet with silk flower attached at one side.
This classically recognizable dress is featured in Barbara Hilliker's Dy-Dee book. The condition is played with. The dress fabric retains its integrity, and is not weak, but somewhat faded overall, and there are some fabric 'pulls' here and there. The back lower buttonhole has a decent repair. The sleeve elastic was stretched; I have attached a new elastic to give it plenty of spring now. The sleeve edges show some wear at the underarm seam.
The bonnet is in excellent crisp condition. My photos show a white full slip underneath, and I will send along one with the purchase. My last photo shows how the set would look with a pink slip underneath if you so chose to do so on your own... it's just to give you the idea.
Although this lovely dress has some wear, your own Baby will be sure to love wearing it, and it surely displays beautifully -- and it is a highly desired dress among Dy-Dee collectors.
Fun Fact -- this dress also came in a blue organdy, as well as a white organdy.
