A simple baby garment with extraordinary fine needlework from the mid 19th century.  About 1850's or perhaps earlier. This little undershirt or chemise is of homespun linen in a very fine weave.  Completely hand stitched with tiny, tiny stitches.

Even tiny little gussets set in under the arms. Front opening.  Edging the neck line, a  narrow fancy needlework lace in a scallop design.  

Size:  8" across from shoulder to shoulder.  From shoulder to hem 7-1/2"long.  Chest area is 16" completely around. 

Condition:  For the age, good but some flaws.  A few small holes in the fabric. 

Size of the garment would be suitable for dressing a doll or just admire the beautiful workmanship done so long ago.  Truly a work of art.
