A Classic Victorian or 'Belle Epoque' era Child's Dress



Do you remember Eloise who lived at the Plaza Hotel, or Madeleine who walked in 2 straight lines with her companions?

Well perhaps this dress once belonged to one of them!

This little dress is just a charming reminder of a time long gone.

Handmade of soft white muslin or batiste cotton fabric this little dress is just dripping with lace, inset down the front, edging the sleeves and hem and even as little ruffles over the shoulders. The lace is set off by rows and rows of little tucks...a classic example of the type. This dress has snaps sewn down the back to close it so we think it probably dates from the 1930s-40s. We've added a new blue satin ribbon at the dropped waist as the original has disappeared.

This vintage French dress measures 25 inches long from shoulder to hem, 9 inches across at the shoulders, 12 1/2 inches across at the underarms of the full gathered bodice and 14 inches across when flat at the dropped waist.

We estimate this would fit a child of from about 2 to 4 depending on body type...please check the measurements we give.

This dress is in excellent vintage condition with only a tiny hole at the back lost in the folds and a few breaks here and there in the lace but these could be mended with a few quick stitches and would be un-noticed in the overall fanciness of this dress . It is delicate but entirely wearable....perhaps for a special birthday, as a flower girl dress or a charming portrait. We do think it should have a little slip made to wear under it which would be an easy job for a good seamstress.

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