Exquisite Antique French Heirloom White Batiste Baby Dress, completely made by hand. The handwork is absolutely amazing, the tiniest stitches with drawn work inset, and gorgeous fine lace at the sleeves and collar of this petite dress. There are four inverted pleats, two in the front and two in the back, and four tiny buttons in the back for closure, so charming.
This little wonder has been so very well taken care of by a collector. Just a few very tiny very faint little pinspots, and one area in the lace has come loose. I show a close~up of this, if you are handy with a needle (as so many of you Victorian lovers are!) this will be fixable. This dress would be absolutely gorgeous for a special French Doll or Teddy Bear, or to display, fine quality work, absolutely stunning! Measures 12" shoulder to shoulder, 6" sleeves, bottom of hem is 26" wide (folded so twice that is the total diameter.)
