This sweet child's dress dates from the early 1900s and is made of a natural colored raw silk. The bodice has inset lace and pintucking as well as decorations of mother of pearl buttons. The sleeves are full and have the lace and pearl decoration down to the cuffs. The back has the same decoration; such attention to detail! In good overall condition, there is an area near the hem on the back skirt that has a slight stain and a few small holes (please see photo). There is one very small hole in the front. The dress is gathered and has five round buttons and then is open down the front. Such a delightful gown!!!
Neck opening: 12"
Shoulder to shoulder seam: 11 1/2"
Sleeve length (shoulder seam to cuff edge): 18"
Length (center of back neck to hem): 26 1/2"
