Exceptionally Fine French Child 's Dress with Lace and Hand Embroidery

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

++++THIS ITEM IS RESERVED FOR PETA...PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE UNLESS YOU ARE HER...THANK YOU SO MUCH.++++


This Exquisite little dress been entirely Hand Embroidered and Hand Sewn.

I said to my husband, when I saw it, 'This is 'The Dress' I am always looking for...'the dress' that every mother imagines for her little girl...it is truly exquisite.' He smiled indulgently, but men just don't know about these things....

This exquiste French handmade dress is a superbe example of the astonishing level of needlework that was lavished on baby and childrens clothes in the 19th and early 20th century. This little dress is just 'dripping' with embroidery and Valenciennes lace. It is entirely hand sewn of the finest cotton lawn and it is just beautifully designed...really just perfect. All the embroidery is hand done as is the sewing.

As I said it is is the dress I am always looking for, but the dress I rarely find. It is an example of the 'top' of its kind.

And it is in truly superbe vintage condition. Remembering that it is likely 75 to 100 years old, I find no flaws...no holes or stains or repairs. It is entirely wearable.

I think this dress is suitable because of its very adaptable cut for a little girl of perhaps about of about 6 or 7 to about 9 (depending on body type---please check measurements)....and I think it would be just pefect for a flower girl's dress or for a classic portrait .

The meaurements are 24 inches around at the underarms and 30 inches long from shoulder to hem. As you can see because of the cut of this dress, the shoulder width can be widely variable because there is no shoulder seam as such

This very fine dress will come to you freshly hand-laundered using fine non-allergenic French soap
and ironed

This is truly an exceptional and heirloom quality child's dress from the Victorian era to pass down for generations.
