A lovely delicate and beautifully hand finished English Victorian Edwardian little girls dress with lots and lots of fabric and lace and Broiderie Anglaise detail - in fabulous condition Pretty hand embroidered eyelet floral design across the chest with pleating lace edging and ribbon details to cuffs and scalloped trim, pin tucks around the skirt, sweet puffed sleeves and the dress is beautifully hand gathered into the bodice with an under-frill which makes the dress puff out for extra volume This beautiful baby dress fastens with 2 tiny little buttons at the back and ribbon ties.
I have carefully washed and steamed the dress so it is whitest of white with cream ribbons and absolutely ready to wear! She is an absolute gem, with gorgeous detail and strong cotton with plenty of wear left. Each unique item that I sell has its own history and personality and even though some show signs of being pre-loved, that is part of the charm! This particular dress has some delicate darning to the front but adds to her adorable 140 year old charm
Any faults are described as accurately as possible but please bear in mind antique and vintage textiles sometimes bear the traces of a previous life. I ensure that every piece is thoroughly cleaned, pressed and carefully stored so it will always reach you in the best possible condition.
