RARE * RARE * RARE
FABULOUS! Effanbee FACTORY ISSUE 20" Dy-Dee Lou Dimity Dress with added slip and bonnet.
Near MINT condition!! GORGEOUS! TAGGED!!!
Modeled on Both my Mold 1 and Mold 3 Dy-Dee LOU dolls for your reference.
Everyone likes Dy-Dee outfits that can be documented in Barbara Hillier'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 dress and slip with replaced bonnet.
The dress is TAGGED at the back. Dress is crisp, clean and just about PERFECT!
Her bonnet was missing... but I have added from my Dolly Closet a SENSATIONAL replacement that I like even better! The pure white cotton crochet doll bonnet has a darling scalloped narrow brim that is trimmed in pink along the edges, and embroidered ROSES trail along it from silk ribbon tie to tie. This bonnet perfectly matches this lovely dress.
Includes pair of plain rayon socks for Dy-Dee~
ALSO AVAILABLE as a complete set in a 'darker' ROSES print for your 20" DY-DEE Lou-- see my other listing
