This is the sweetest vintage christening gown, under-slip and bib. The attention to detail is amazing. There is quite a bit of hand sewing on these; with beautiful french seams. tiny pin tucks and detailing on the front top, bottom and middle of the dress and matching detail on the bottom front of the under slip. Some of this detail work certainly looks hand sewn . .it might all be hand work. It is in lovely condition - I did not see any holes and I saw one very faint spot on the under-slip which is in the photo . .it barely shows. The neck opening from button to button whole is approx. 11 inches The shoulder seam when buttoned measures from seam to seam about 7 1/2 inches. The dress measures from the shoulder seam to bottom of lace trim a little over 26 inches. The underslip is slightly shorter. It is fresh with no odor ( I hand washed and lightly ironed). The bib is just a cute as can be with great detail work. It is an amazing heirloom. I am estimating its age to around the 30's perhaps the early 40's, based on the information I obtained when I purchased it.
Please review the photo's very carefully as they are part of my description. I noticed that in the first photo the bib appears to be a slightly yellow shade in color - but it is not. It is the same soft white as the dress and under-slip.
