Beautiful pointing to the sides and the hem is finished also finished a pointed lace edge. The dress is 10 ins from underarm to underarm. And is 40 ins long.
The dress has masses of gathers and could be made a a little looser by the back ties. The petticoat under-slip also fastens. Two little ties and a button. Gathered somewhat by the ties so the can be made tighter.Or let out a little, if need be. I would say this beautiful Antique Silk & Lace Christening Gown and matching silk petticoat. A few signs of age related wear as you might expect with a silk gown of this age. There is a tiny darn, but these are hidden in the folds of the silk. The Christening dress has one tiny little part of the lace which has become unattached, this could easily be stitched.
And one little rust mark. These are not visible in the masses of gathers and lace. Please have a close look at the pictures and. Posted via Hermes Courier service, tracked, signature required and insured.
