Up for auction we have the Mod British Birds Somers and Field Daisy and Willow doll dress made by Doug James & the late Laura Meisner in the late 1990's/early 2000's called "Debut". This outfit originally came on a blonde Daisy doll called "Debut" and has long been retired. This auction is for the doll dress, yellow shoes and light green gloves. *Please note that this auction is for the partial outfit only (only for the yellow dress, yellow shoes and pale green gloves!) - a doll is NOT included, nor is the stand, original box, COA, story card, hangtag, nylons, jewelry, underwear, etc.!!!* I have actually had buyers leave me negative feedback before because they didn't fully read my auction's listing before bidding.
You will receive the yellow dress, matching shoes and gloves, as show in the photo of those items only. The other photos are just for display purposes, nothing else is included in the auction but what I just said. Please also note that I bought this on Ebay originally, and so I am not the original owner. Although I have never displayed it or had it out of it's box, I cannot guarantee that the previous owner did not. There are no stains, tears, discoloration or fading that I can see. If you are sensitive to pets, which I do have (cats, although I keep my doll things put away and not anywhere near my cats) please be aware of this before bidding. This is a used doll outfit in excellent condition, but nevertheless it is still used, so please do keep that in mind.
This dress is very cute and is modeled after the 1960's, as it is empire waist-ed. To me it almost looks like something Jackie Kennedy would've worn. I think it would look great with a wide variety of jewelry and accessories. It is shown on a blonde Ashton Drake Gene doll as well as the original Debut Daisy (Somers & Field Mod British Birds) doll, but it would also look great on red heads and brunette dolls with varying hairstyles I'm sure. While it is made to fit the Daisy and Willow dolls channeling the 1960's, I think it would also look lovely on other 15" or 16" dolls, such as the Gene Marshall & friends dolls made by Ashton Drake & Integrity. The hair style of the Gene doll "Evening Encore" would suit this outfit well, and the entire look of the Madra doll "Jonquille" really reminds me of this, so they might look nice displayed together. It would fit the other Gene Marshall & friends (Violet, Ivy, Zita, Madra, Oona & Marsha) dolls made by both Ashton Drake and Integrity/Jason Wu perfectly. It most likely would also fit some other 15"-16" fashion dolls such as Madame Alexander's Alex; Tonner's Antoinette (who is smaller than Sydney and Tyler who tend to be bigger?); *possibly* it *might* fit Tonner's celebrity dolls such as Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, Ava Gardner, etc.; Brenda Starr, Eve, Clea Bella, etc. although I *cannot* guarantee it since I have not tried it. Daisy and Willow tend to be a tiny bit bigger than Gene dolls, and the cut of this dress is very loose, so I would say that it probably would fit dolls with wider hips and waist than Gene, such as some of the Tonner dolls, as well as DAE's Vivian (she does have wider hips than Gene) for example. This dress looks great with or without the included pale green gloves and yellow shoes, or you can just have your doll wear the dress alone...You can mix and match accessories with other doll outfits. The possibilities are endless. Do not miss out on the opportunity to own this wonderful Daisy outfit for yourself! :)
