This is a lovely baby’s dress dating from the 1860/70s, hand made of a fine cotton fabric. the bodice is decorated with elongated diamonds of broderie anglaise and fine pin tucks. This theme is continued in the skirt, which has alternate horizontal panels of broderie anglaise and eight rows of pin tucks running horizontally across the front panel for the full length of the skirt from the waistline to the hem, which is also trimmed with the same broderie anglaise. The robings also in matching broderie anglaise run right from the shoulders of the bodice to the lower hem of the front. The sleeves are short and match the robings. The chest measurement is approximately 20 inches (51 cms.) and the overall length from shoulder to hem is 38 inches (96 cms.). The sleeve measurement is 3 inches (7.5 cms). The dress fastens at the back with tapes which can be used to gather the waist and neck to adjust the size. The dress is in very good condition but there is one small repair where the robing meets the sleeve, a repair on the frill, and also two very small darns on the back of the skirt. This is a lovely hand made dress, typical of the period and one to treasure for that special occasion, a christening or other family occasion.
