Paisley is the name of this very traditional print that has remained in style for thousands of years in countries around the world. It refers to a teardrop or tadpole shape filled in with different colors and patterns. Paisley prints are used on everything from household goods to clothing. This cotton paisley dress is a pattern of blues and greens. Both the girl and doll dress feature a ruffle on the shoulder strap, two rows of ruffles on the bodice and a ruffle hemline. The dress is cool, comfortable and fashionable. Add some sandals which are sold separately for a special summer sundress for your favorite girl and her doll. Our clothes are our own design and handmade. The matching doll dress will fit 18 inch dolls. If you would like the doll dress to fit a baby doll or a Cabbage Patch Kid doll, please note that in the comments box and we will switch from the 18 inch size doll dress to the baby doll or Cabbage Patch Kid doll size.
