Fine French Handmade Baby Dress


Another gorgeous French baby's dress.

Recently I have had quite good luck finding lovely babies dresses of about this size....and I think evey baby girl should have one for the reasons I mention below.

I think this dresses is suitable for an average baby of about 9 or even up to about 18 or so months was likely intended as a Christening gown for an older baby ...but I think it would be just pefect for that portrait that should be taken of every baby at about 6 to 12 months old, when babies are sitting up, smiling, and are so adorable...that time of truly essential 'babyhood'.

Take your baby to a Professional photographer, put this little dress on her, leave her feet bare, nothing on her head, sit her on a simple white blanket and tell the photographer you want a Classic Old Fashioned black and white Portrait with no 'cutsie' props..maybe holding a silver rattle or some such, but nothing that distracts...just your baby... as she is now ..and never will be again. I promise you will treasure this photo portrait forever.

This lovely dress is Entirely Handmade of the finest cotton batiste with insets of Valenciennes lace and row after row of tiny pin-tucks. Over the shoulders are charming little ruffles. This dress closes at the back with 3 tiny mother-of-pearl buttons. The very full skirt is edged in a ruffle and finished with more lace...just the quintessential French baby dress.

This little dress is in superbe vintage condition with no stains, holes or other signs of wear.

This vintage French baby dress measures 21 inches long and 10 inches across at the underarms. Please check measurements carefully.

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

A Beautiful Gift for a new mother of a beautiful baby girl.
