SUPER RARE * 1930's Effanbee 11" Dy-Dee Ette "Book Cover" Flocked Dotted Swiss Dress






This is the IDENTICAL Effanbee factory Dy-Dee issue dress highlighting the cover of Barbara Hilliker's Dy-Dee doll reference book --


only it is in RED.




Modeled on my American Character Tiny Tears 11.5" baby doll, and my Dy-Dee Lou models a green version in her own size.


I have sold three of these elusive and wonderful dresses over the last few years in green -- 2 in the 15" Dy-Dee Jane size, 1 in the 20" Dy-Dee Lou size, and this one in the 11" Dy-Dee Ette size... issued in a red flocked dot version.


This dress was produced in the 1930d and although modeled on the front cover of Barbara's book on a MOLD THREE doll that was issued quite a bit later, the dress was actually produced in the 1930d and is appropriate for your Mold 1 and Mold 2 Dy-Dee LOU dolls. Here I show it modeled on my own MOLD 2 brunette Dy-Dee Lou in green.


THIS IS THE ONLY 11" Sized Dy-Dee Ette example that has been documented~


I offer this supreme example of the classic Dy-Dee dress from my own collection.




This lovely dress is made with RED FLOCKED polka dots sprinkled on an antique white woven cotton background fabric. Intricate cotton lace enhances the elastic sleeve openings, and around the Peter Pan style collar. A full skirt is gathered into the bodice with pinch pleats. A tiny safety pin closes the garment at the back.


Condition: the dress is in near mint condition with the ORIGINAL BLUE SILK bow still attached between the collar. The fabric is crisp and immaculately clean. The 'dots' are vivid and perfect. The lace is unbroken and complete and there are no rips, tears or loose stitches. The elastic at the sleeves has been replaced and is supple and stretchy.


This dress is one of a few that are an absolute MUST HAVE to complete your Dy-Dee collection.

Listing is for the dress and a full slip as pictured.
