This finely embroidered white batiste gown was handmade, likely in the 1930s. It features very tiny pintucking and intricate embroidery on the bodice with an openwork detail at the neck. The embroidery pattern and openwork continues down the front of the gown and above the scalloped hem.The gown has long sleeves ending with scalloped embroidered cuffs. The back gathers to a rounded yoke and closes with two tiny buttons. Included is a slip with scalloped embroidery finishing the neckline, armholes, and hem. It closes on both shoulders with small buttons.
This would make a beautiful heirloom christening gown for an infant or a wonderful dress for a toddler.
