ANTIQUE CHRISTENING GOWN - part of a large collection of antique baby and infant dresses, gowns, bonnets, bibs and clothes

Exquisite antique christening gown dating from the late Victorian era circa 1890 and completely hand sewn.

This dress is made from fine sheer muslin with lace and whitework inserts and panels and embroidered panels. The bodice has a high round neck lace trimming and white work.  The sleeves are trimmed in matching lace.  The bodice is made up of delicate strips of tambour lace on net, white work and pin tucked muslin.  The hand stitches can be plainly seen and are incredibly beautiful.  It is quite amazing to think that this dress was created by sewing the fine fabric together with a simple needle and thread all those years ago and has survived in such good condition.  The bottom of the bodice has an inserted strip of lace whitework and the gathered skirt flares out beneath this.

The dress has an embroidered muslin panel that is bordered with embroidered lace. The muslin panel is embroidered with tiny delicate sprigs of flowers and French knots that get bigger and bigger the closer they are to the hem.  It fastens with two fabric covered buttons at the back. 

It could have a coloured or white silk laced through the lace of the waist band for extra decoration.

This is the most beautiful dress and is in excellent condition.
