Day 1 heirloom sewing slip

slip
Here are some recent additions to the dresses that I have in my families heirloom collection.  I do hope someday my grandchildren will be able to wear these dresses if for no other reason than to have them wear them for photos.
shoulder
tagI am going to be posting items for about 6 or 7 days of heirloom baby items again.  Parts of these dresses are hand done and parts are machine made but all are commercial bought dresses but not recently.  I am guessing the late 1940's but they could be as new as the late as the mid 1970's.  Hard to tell as the original owner can not tell me.

hem
100% cotton from the tag I  could have guessed that.  There is 1 mother of pearl button on the left shoulder of the slip.  Hard to tell in the photos but this slip is the faintest baby blue.
hem shadow work detail
The edge details are all machine stitches as are the pin tucks at the hem.  But all the other details at the center of the hem are all hand done.  Satin stitch, shadow work, drawn thread work and outline stitches are all executed by hand and very exquisitely done as well.
