Vintage Christening dress for baby. It has hand tatted lace on the sleeves and bottom. There is an underdress too. I don't know if they were made together or separate. The top dress is machine sewn with hand tatted and embroidery detailing. The under dress is hand stitched. The lace is not exactly the same on the top dress as the bottom, but this is how it came. Also with the baby Christening gown was a long pair of silk stockings or long socks for the baby.

From the 1940s. It is one of a collection of Christening gowns from six generations of one family.

Measurements are:
Top dress
21 inches long
10 inches across Shoulders

Underdress:
19 inches long
10 inches across shoulders.

Socks

The underdress is mostly hand finished and the lace on it is crocheted where the lace on the outer dress is tatted. Both in great condition. The top dress has MOP buttons and the under dress has hard plastic buttons. The socks are perfect.
