This is a lovely little dress. It was made specially to fit the 18" American Girl dolls. It will be fine for Bitty Baby, too! A great style for Maryellen because homemade clothes and smocking were very popular in the 1950's.
The dresses we actually received from the supplier have pink tulips and a yellow flower in the middle, differing from the pink flowers that show in the supplier photos. The last photo shows that detail. In back there is a big sash bow that is tacked to one side of the middle hoop-and-loop closure so it won't need to be tied all the time (which really causes a problem for some children because it is hard for them to get the bow tied. NOT a problem with this dress!)
