An adorable unworn baby dress from the later 1930s or 1940s. The dress is made in a soft batiste white cotton. The yoke is made of four rows of pin tucks, in a series of four, on the front dress yoke. 

Each set is separated with a row of feather stitch embroidery.  Narrow lace trim edges the neck line and short puff sleeves.  A wider Alencon lace edges the hem.  Two acetate ribbon bows, with streamers, are attached at the shoulders.  The back of the dress is made on a plain yoke with two buttons fastening the closing.

No labels to indicate the origin nor any size tags.  It would probably fit a child about 4 to 6 months of age. 

Measurements:  15-1/4" long from the neck line to hem.  9-1/2" across from shoulder to shoulder.  23" around the chest.  

Condition:  Unworn and never laundered.  You will find some oxidation from years of storage.  Otherwise lovely.

Suitable for Christening or photography.  Or just to display.
