Actual Antique Lolita?

Hi all you knowledgeable lolitas!

I'm a beginner lolita and I have a couple questions - Are actual antique dresses (and also dresses based closely off antique dresses) appropriate or inappropriate for lolita? Not frumpy ladie's dresses or formal dresses or walking suits but girl's/teen's afternoon tea dresses with all the lace inserts and pintucks and full skirts (hemlength mid to lower calf)... what do you think?

and are there any brands/styles that stay closer to actual styles of victorian/edwardian little girls and french bisque antique dolls?
