Vtg 1940s Hand Made Gorgeous Baby Christening Gown Dress, White Organdy & Lace
Get Vendio Gallery - Now FREE! This is one of the most beautiful Christening dresses that I have ever seen! It dates to the 1940's, and is hand made, with really expert craftsmanship! The piece is quite elaborate, with the most stunning tiny pin-tuck pleats. There are pleats on the yoke, and a double layer around the bottom - one for the bottom of the dress, and one that has been ruffled at the bottom with lace. The sleeves have a tiny inset of the pleats in between two rows of inset lace, as does the bodice. There are two wonderful long satin ribbons that are tacked onto the front. They are just lightly tacked on, so they would be easy to remove, and replace, or just remove, if you like. The ribbon is slightly flattened, and really shows the only wear on the dress. It is bright white organdy, with no stains, rips, tears, holes or issues of any kind. It has a two button closure on the back. Organdy is a thin, translucent fabric that was often used for baby clothes. The dress is so well made that the inside is almost as gorgeous as the outside! The measurements are: Front center to hem - 24 1/2" Shoulder to shoulder top of sleeve to top of sleeve - 8" Sleeve shoulder to edge - 3 1/2" Sleeve opening: 6" in diameter The dress truly won't disappoint. As a note for care, after using it, if you plan to store it, wash the starch out of it before storing it. Hand washing only, of course, very gently. Starch left in clothes that are stored will cause discolorations that sometimes won't come out.
