Beautiful baby christening dress in white cotton circa early 1900s. French seams, lace trim, pintucks across the back of the shoulders, beautiful embroidery. High neckline, sleeves trimmed in crochet lace. And the absolute neatest thing about this is the small cloth tag lightly stitched to the front on which someone has written " Christine M Johnson, christened in this dress made for her daddy by cousin Edith *something* Scoular, *something*. (*something* being words I cant quite make out). The tag just has a few loose stitches tacking it to the dress so it would be very easily removed should you wish to.
Excellent vintage condition. There are no closures in the back. There are a several pinholes in places though none that are very noticeable due to the volume of the dress and nothing threatening its stability in any way, and the lace on the sleeves are a little worn but only at the ends.
Measurements: doubled at bust, waist and hip. This is meant to be easy fitting.
Armpit to armpit across bust: 30"
Armpit to shoulder: 5"
Shoulder to bottom hem: 29"
