Part 12: cream silk dress

front of dress
This is one of the most damaged items but one of the prettiest too.  The silk is so sheer you can see straight through it.  It is sad that is has a real bad case of dry rot.  Silks tend to do this easily.  It has lovely French lace on the sleeves, yokes front and back, and the neck. Sweet little pin-tucks too.

This is so sheer, light and airy the slightest little breeze sends it dancing.
look how sheer this silk is
Can I just say how terrified I was when I cleaned  it (rinsed). Happy to say I didn't add to any of the damage.  I laid it on a white towel and poured the water over it so the fibers would not have to hold the weight of the water.  This pretty much just got a rinse and I was too scared to do anything else to it cleaning wise.  Like I said before I am not repairing this set of baby clothes.
