Part 2: 1940's baby dress pink details


This dress is simple and sweet.  It is made from one piece of fabric folded over for the front and back.  Then there is the binding for the sleeves and neck/button placket.   It is amazing to me how sheer the fabric is and that so little damage was done to all of these dresses.  I mean think of 1 year old these days falling and playing and eating you would think these would have a ton more damage on them then they do such as ripped and  torn all over the hem, stained from food and grass and so on.

It has details of daisies around the neck and hem.

I also love the detail of the little touch of pink at the neck to secure the folded over edge of the neck.
collar detail

As you can tell in the photos there is a picot crochet edging going around the bottom of the dress to finish the hem detailing.I love the simple little details of the pink going around the hem to match the collar.

The sleeves on this have received the most damage.

The other significant damage on this is at the center back at the bottom of the button placket.

  1. I always enjoy your posts with vintage clothing. You are so talented. The sweet little dress you shared reminds me of an amazing website that has beautiful fabrics and patterns. They have a little old lady, Miss Dot, that creates some gorgeous baby clothes that look a lot like your pix. If you go to the following website and click 'gallery' look for Miss Dot's pictures. :) http://www.farmhousefabrics.com/
