vintage embroidered baby dress

A crisp white vintage cotton baby frock full of detail and whimsy! This pretty little dress is entirely hand stitched with a bodice in fine white cotton batiste adorned with embroidered flowers and "passe-ruban" openwork, and a fully pleated skirt of a white shirting cotton with subtle damask polka dotted linear stripes. Two rows of the same passe-ruban openwork trim the skirt of the dress and lovely little crocheted drops trim the sleeves and midriff. A fine Valenciennes lace edges the square collar and five small mother-of-pearl buttons fasten at the back. Likely dating from the early to mid 20th century, this darling piece is in impeccable condition. Dimensions: overall length 21.5in., width across the chest 13in., width across the top (sleeve edge to sleeve edge) 20in. Suitable for a child of 18 months to 3 years.
