Vintage 1950s 1960s Christening Baptism Dress, Made in Manilla

Toadstool Farm Vintage

1 Available

Lovely little girls white cotton dress. Buttons in the back with two separate little white buttons. Probably intended for a Christening gown but I think it would be perfectly lovely as just a regular baby dress. Its so light and airy, perfect for the Summer. Scalloped edge sleeves that. Very pretty embroidery and pintucks at the neckline, and the sweetest, tiniest little box pleats under both armpits. Little tag that says Handmade, Manilla Product. I am guessing at the age, but it looks 50s or so to me.
Excellent vintage condition. There is a bit of pink thread caught in the bottom hem. One could remove it if they wanted to take out a few stitches of the hem, pull it out, then sew it back up. It didn't bother me so I've just left it. I think the obvious little sign of this being handmade is actually quite appealing. Otherwise its still snow white. Also beautiful for display.

Measurements: doubled at bust, waist and hip. This is meant to be somewhat easy fitting.
Armpit to armpit: 22"
Waist loose
Hips: loose
Armpit to shoulder: 4.25"
Shoulder to bottom hem: 15.25"
