A Young Girl's Gown - from Sleepy Hollow

When this turned up I couldn't resist it either.  (I can never afford Christina Ricci's costumes, so I get what I can! On layaway.)

A Young Girl’s (Lily Phillips) bodice and apron worn in the 1999 Tim Burton horror film Sleepy Hollow. The girl can be seen in the early scenes of the movie dancing around inside the Van Tassell household as Ichabod Crane (Johnny Depp) arrives to solve the town's superstition of the Headless Horseman. The padded cotton garment is coloured an earthy brown and decorated with embroidered autumnal coloured leaves and stems, and features lace frills around the cuffs and neckline. It fastens at the front with hooks and eyes with robust versions inside for holding up the skirt and also included is the dull yellow over apron made from crocheted cotton and tied at the side with strips of lace. There are no sizes marked and is in excellent condition.

Ok, this pic from the back is a little strange, being pantsless.
