Antique Broderie Frill & Princess Pleats Cotton Christening Gown


An exquisite antique Christening Gown in soft white broderie frills, princess pleating detail all in the softest of cotton lawn.  It has a broderie ruffled frill at the bodice/neck and there is a fine lace border around the neck and cuffs.  The base border contains a soft pleated band, followed by a broderie band and four soft floaty broderie lawn frills, so the movement is beautiful.  Original ties are still threaded through the bodice at the back, They look short in the photographs but this is because the ruffle has been loosened, they extend when the ruffle is pulled and tightened.

Good structural condition for age. No staining or noticeable marks.  All it needs are new button and loop fasteners at the back.  The original laundry coding label is still within the gown at the back.
94cm in length
This beautiful piece has been so well cared for.
