Summer Cotton Dress and Petticoat in a delicate Celery Green and Bluettes Floral print
for 16" Helen Kish Seasons dolls.

A petticoat of delightful bluette flower print fabric, adorned with silk bluette blossoms and a pale green satin ribbon at the waist. Worn over a puff sleeved dress of pale green fabric. Very full skirts edged in lots and lots of ecru cotton lace. Sleeve cuffs edged with medium green rick-rack adorned with hand worked french knots for a whimsical polka dot effect. Scrunchy headband to coordinate.

When I was a kid, there was a wide open field behind my house where I would run and play in the summertime. I can remember running down to the field and coming across a huge spray of bluette flowers covering the area. The sun was hot and bright, and the color of those flowers were so clear blue! I picked as many as I could and brought them back up to the house to my mom. She told me how she would pick baskets full of bluettes in the summertime when she was little.

Both the dress and petticoat has a very full skirt edged in lots of ecru cotton lace. Under the skirt, Kish Fall wears a tulle netting half slip to hold her skirt full and flouncy.
The bodice is completely lined. Closes in back with snaps for a smooth fit.

Outfit is designed and sewn by me. My 16" Kish Fall Season doll is modelling this outfit which includes:

  • Bluette floral cotton print petticoat with satin ribbon bow and full skirt edged in ecru cotton lace.
  • Pale green cotton dress with rickrack and french knots accenting the sleeve cuffs. Full skirt edged in gobs of ecru cotton lace.
  • Headband with rickrack and hand worked french knot "polka dots."
  • White tulle netting half slip.
