c1750 Silk Satin Christening Gown 1123.2020.15
This one is beautiful~ with a nice full skirt~ 86" at the hem. Its always fun to study the different gown openings...some have an open front, some are back closing....I have seen both front and back stitched closed so the gown was slipped on over the head of it's wearer. Agrees in this hasty picture, it is hard to see, the the gown has a partial open back, with a partially attached front apron.
One of the ties has pulled loose, and is held in place with a straight pin...from our cushion no doubt.
I hope thee has not grown tired of our basket exploration yet...the best is still yet to come!
