The dress is of a slightly heavier weight natural fiber fabric, cotton or linen, more like a homespun, than the batistes, lawn cottons and linen. Probably the right fabric for active children's clothing. Scalloped embroidered edges and embroidered short sleeves. The front of the dress has embroidered flowers with pale pink french knot centers. The front features to the two sections, which are open, where you would thread the sash. Apparently this is a sturdy dress and well cared for. After years of storage, there are only a few pale spots, which could certainly be laundered out. I believe you can see them in a couple of the photos. No worn spots, holes or tears.
The dress is strong and certainly wearable for years to come. Darling for period photoshoots, weddings, etc.
