Black Velvet Gibson Girl
A beautiful outfit made in the Gibson Girl style.
Using a luxurious black stretch silk fabric to give a wonderful weight and fall to the very full skirts of the
dress.
The bodice is very tightly fitted from the shoulders to the thighs.
It has long sleeves that are very full at the top and shape down to fit tightly round the wrists.
The neckline is very high and ruched into folds around the neck, fastening at the back with tiny crystal
beads and hooks and eyes.
The tight fit is achieved using a tiny little bronze zip that fastens all the way up the back.
The dress is embellished with an exquisite tiny silver and diamante flower shaped brooch.
The brooch is magnetic and can be moved.
The outfit also includes the very wide brimmed hat. It has been trimmed with white and silver stranded
ostrich feathers. A wide black pleated ribbon which fastens at the side into a buckle trimmed with
diamante finishes off the crown.
Underneath the brim is a layer of delicate black lace and more ostrich feathers.
The brim is wired and can be shaped and manipulated as desired.
To protect the doll from the black of the fabric and the possibility of staining, there is a shift dress made in
delicate white cotton lawn fabric trimmed with Nottingham cotton lace.
Long sleeved and high necked, it fastens down the back with tiny buttons and loops.
Finally the outfit is finished with some neatly buckled black patent shoes.
