For the serious collector, I offer this amazing Museum Quality baby dress made of red and white printed calico cotton. The calico print looks like tiny leaves. It is entirely hand stitched and features an Empire bodice which is gathered at both the neck and the waist. The short sleeves are trimmed with delicate ecru knitted lace. It is about 21" long and has a built in 1 1/2" fold in the skirt which allows for more length as the child grows. It is about 8" across front under the arms and also at waist front. There are 2 small ornate mother of pearl buttons at the shoulders and loops inside for securing on hanger. In the back there are 2 hook and eye closures at the waist area...I believe it was to be pinned at the top as I see no closure hints. Excellent Museum Quality Condition!!
