Gene takes her bows as a very lovely Gwendolen in this beautiful costume - just right for Victorian England and "The Importance of Being Earnest".
A replica of this costume is available in a Limited Edition of 10. A Certificate of Authenticity is included. This ensemble was designed by Barbara Steinberg then made for DOLL FASHIONS UNLIMITED in the USA.
Gene's costume is a soft blue linen afternoon dress with matching capelet (we've used a linen-look fabric for our replica). The dress has leg 'o mutton sleeves and a center tuck on the bodice front; both are trimmed with pink braid. A pink cameo nestles below the high ruffled white collar. The bodice is lined and closes in back with snaps.
The fashionable flared skirt, slightly fuller in back, ends in a band of soft pink linen and then an elegant blue pleated ruffle. Underneath Gene is wearing a white organdy petticoat eged with a ruffle plus pink slip-on heels.
In the Second Act, Gene wears a matching blue linen capelet over her dress; it's lined in pink linen and trimmed with more pink braid. A tiny hook and loop closes the capelet at the neckline. The crowning glory is her hat - it's a pure confection of pale pink satin, sheer ruffles, satin ribbon and tiny pink flowers. (Hat pin included).

A final touch is the pink suede bag with a delicate gold chain handle. Outfit will arrive on a Gene sized wire hanger!
