Is your bebe missing some appropriate underwear? Perhaps this item will be her salvation! It is a slip that is an early combination of a chemise and a petticoat. It is all hand made, including the rows of tucking, and the hand sewn lace edging. The garment closes in the back with two 3-hole buttons with hand worked buttonholes, and a casing at the waist with a drawstring.
The garment measures 11 1/2" long (29 cm) overall, with a waist of approximately 8" (20.5 cm). there is a tiny, light brown spot on the front of the bodice that is shown in my photos. Otherwise the slip is in excellent condition.
