This brings back memories of Princess Dianna’s baby boys, in particular, Prince William. He always was dressed with style and charm, as was Prince Harry. And this was the sort of romper they were dressed in when babies.
This was beautifully made in the British Colony of Hong Kong in the 1980’s, clearly made for the Western market, and influenced by Princess Dianna’s taste. This infant boy’s one piece romper outfit was created with care and detail. You can just imagine how smart a baby boy looked in this outfit.
The round collar has been bordered in blue and the hand stitched smocking has also been created in a matching blue. The cuffed sleeves are a plain white cotton as are the legs.
There are buttons at the crotch and buttons at the back. And to add to the smartness, there is a separate attach belt with buttons. All the buttons are intact and the condition of the rompers is perfect.
I have washed the rompers by hand, (and they came out fresh and lovely) but the instructions say they can be washed in the machine and but not tumble dried.
The measurements are as follows:
Sleeve, from Shoulder: 3 ½”
Inner Sleeve: 1 ¼”
Sleeve Opening” 4 ¼”
Bust: 9 ½”
Length to Crotch: 16 ½”
Length Width of Elastic: 5”
Neck: 4 ¼”
This is an heirloom for the future, but it could also grace a boy doll as well.
