Description

Antique child's bodice with exquisite whitework hand-embroidery -- most liberally featured in the yoke area, as well as on the sleeves, waistband, as well as all-over the edges of several flounce elements. The bodice is entirely hand-stitched as well, and I have provided several detailed photos where you can examine the details close-up. Note the lovely seam detail, among other things. Whisper weight fine cotton. Original ties (one longer, one shorter). Beautifully designed and constructed. The bodice had been harvested at one time, as evidenced by the remnants of the rest of the gown below the waistband. The bodice measures about 11" across the front, from seam to seam. The bodice is much roomier across the back (see photos). It measures 5.25" from the bottom of the arm opening to the bottom of the waistband. The sleeves are 3.75" long. The bodice is in good condition given its considerable age, with the following notes -- 3-4 rust colored discoloration spots on the back, 1 small hole on the back, near the waistband area (last photo), 1 spot of slight separation in the yoke area.

Note -- in the first 3 photos, taken flat, you are seeing the back flounce lifted; when worn, the flounce would fold over the back.
