Vintage 1930's Effanbee Factory 20" Dy-Dee Lou RED ROSES Dimity DRESS #1
RARE * RARE Set
FABULOUS! Effanbee FACTORY ISSUE 20" Dy-Dee Lou Dimity Dress, Slip and Bonnet Set
Excellent CRISP condition!! GORGEOUS!
I have only seen ONE OTHER in this exact print; I have also had two others in the Rosebud print (as opposed to full bloom roses on this dress set -- see my other listings for where I am offering the other).
Listing is for the dress and bonnet and slip shown OFF the doll. My own Dy-Dee Lou is modeling my own set so you can see how it looks on a doll.
Everyone likes Dy-Dee outfits that can be documented in Barbara Hilliker's Dy-Dee reference book. This breathtaking red rosebud dimity outfit came in all sizes for your Dy-Dee dolls, but this size is SO HARD TO FIND. All of the 20" factory outfits are difficult to find because they were made in large part in the 1930's where the Great Depression was in full swing... your Daddy had to be very rich to afford the Dy-Dee LOU Baby doll for his little girl. And extra outfits... that was "over the top" and any lucky little girl would have loved to have any or all.
This set includes the dress with its original bonnet and a slip.
The second button at the back closure detached while dressing my doll, and I will attach it before sending off to you. There is a small mend at the back where the tag was removed many years ago, and a thoughtful Mommy repaired; but it is barely noticeable and of course, at the back. Otherwise the set is in in EXCELLENT, CRISP condition.
MATCHING BONNET has a wide brim to keep the sun from Dy-Dee's baby face. Original 'salmon pink' silk ties are still strong and firmly attached.
Includes pair of pink stripe rayon Dy-Dee socks~
ALSO AVAILABLE in the ALTERNATE LIGHTER ROSEBUD PRINT for your 20" DY-DEE Lou -- see my other listing
