More details from the Antique Christening Gown featured in the last post.
While there was a wide frilled panel that went from the bodice to the hem in the front of the Antique Christening Gown, the rest of the gown was still magnificent! This is part of the embellishment that went all around the Christening Gown. All Hand stitched. Perfect Featherstitching!
The fabric was sheer and fine but closely woven.
I had to show you the two different rows of Featherstitching again. I think it is my favorite part.
The eyelets are finely stitched and the padded satin is perfect! Every stitch you see here..worked by hand!
There is a little shirt that appears to go with the gown. It has the same lace on it. There was also a silk slip that looked to belong.
Close up of the monogram on the little shirt.
Notice the name at the top. The initials PA are a match!!
Hope you enjoyed seeing this gown as much as I have.
