A very sweet little half slip for the early girl in your life, this fine slip was beautifully decorated with silk floss on ecru homespun and entirely hand sewn. The work in person is even more impressive than in the photos; to think of all the time that went into carefully hand stitching these foliate pictorials with delicate little flowers... It's a really good one! Delightful in every way, the top was hand stitched and the seam was done on an early machine, dating it to around the early 1870's. If your girls are already getting their winter wardrobes in order, this slip will absolutely charm on a smaller girl and keep her china legs extra warm too!
Condition: Very good! The hook and eye at the back was replaced, but overall, excellent. Only notable is some minor foxing to the fabric, visible in photos. Truly an excellent piece for its age!
