sadly the photos of this do not do it justice...white gown...white wall!

also i have just noticed the satin ribbon which in photos is tyed at the back, can in fact be tyed at the front as it slots through a hole.

although this looks edwardian in a english style (but isnt as its 100% spanish) i have to guess at its age, it could be anywhere from the 1900s up to the 1970s as its a style which has been very classical for spain, especially if one is baptisiing their baby or presenting to the family .

it is however a breathtaking gown with fine but understated details, it isnt ostentatious in anyway which maybe if you were from a rich family would have been more so, but this is rather simple in design which could make it 1920s-30s.

it is in a cremey off white satin, with cotton lining

it is handmade exquisitley with details like diamond shaped edging along bottom and on the edges of the straight sleeves. with more lace crochet work but rather than same shaped as before , it is in a straight box type with smaller crosses, this runs along the middle of the sleeves (these are narrow and cover the shoulders) and also along the front of the breast, and they continue along the front of the skirt , three quarters of the way down and around to the back.

this is undoubtedly all crocheted by hand

these tiny stunning details are made from cotton, there is also a pure cotton lining, the type of cotton that you dont find much anymore, possibly the purest from india in the colonial days of olde!

this looks like an edwardian or victorian camisole (in epocha espanol... modernista) , as worn as undergarments for women, around the back it is open, in spain it would have always been hot and i image baby would have just worn a small cotton body underneath this.

the lace detail runs along and down the back of the skirt too. theres a bow to tie in the middle and two buttons at the back of the top, the buttons go through cotton loops to attach, a very old technique.

the skirt part is then open, also the baby wouldnt have been seen from behind, she or he possibly would have been held or laid to show gown from front and photographed etc. like this, so it wouldnt have mattered that there was this opening at the back ( also very easy for changing!).

the ribbon attached from the waist also made from satin loops through a hole at the back and so both can come around and tye at the front of the gown.

it has a tiny bit of damage as if it was slighty grated on something around the edge, it is on the left hand side of the upper dress and isnt that noticeable. also babys arm would cover it as would the ribbon tied. but really its in perfect condition considering age.

this is an heirloom and a unique piece in this world! it leaves me gasping!
