Part 24: Not finished antique gown circa 1900

This gown is circa 1900 and not finished.  I have some antique silk thread that I plan to finish it with. It was originally started with white floche (a type of cotton embroidery thread) thread but the person who started it only did a few leaves so I unpicked them as I didn't have enough of the original thread to finish this one and it's sister and it's sister has more embroidery already started on it.  Yes I have two of these you will see the other on Monday.

Yoke detail there are two of these mirror images of each other.  You can see where in this photo I unpicked it.

You know I wish you could still buy pre-stamped baby clothes.   If any one knows of a place let me know especially if it is 100% clothes I am not interested in polyester at all.  Here is a close up of the hem details.

see next post for how to finish this hem with a tailors button hole.
