This little dress is made of a beautiful blue embroidered fabric. When I saw it in the store I knew I really had to have some of it for a doll dress. It is lined with the same silky fabric as I lined her blue winter coat in some places. In other places it is the bodice fabric with the see-thru fabric as a trim. The see thru fabric is the tie that creates the bow in the back. I think you can see it in the picture of the front side. Very hard to explain but it's there. It's used as trimmings.
