A late Victorian or Edwardian long Christening gown for a baby. Made of  pique fabric and whitework embroidered trimming.  The fabric, itself, is a small scale vertical stripe pattern, a white on white design.  The bodice of the gown features a "V" front yoke with four rows of graduated trim. 

A gathered neck line with drawstring adjusts the fit around the neck.   Short puffy sleeves with a cuff. Peeking from under the cuff. a whitework eyelet ruffle.  The bodice attaches to the skirt with gauged cartridge pleats.  So attractive.  Back opening fastens with one covered white button (which shows a touch of wear.)  Another drawstring at the waist to adjust the fit. 

This lovely gown is 35-1/2" long from the neck to hem.  7-1/2" across from shoulder to shoulder.  However, the neck line would adjust larger with the drawstring. 20" around the chest.  18-1/2" around the waist, but again, with the drawstring, the size would adjust. Sleeve length is 4-1/2" long.  Cuff opening is 6-1/2" around. 

Condition is very nice. Freshly laundered.  You may find a small pin hole dot, although I didn't notice.
