Evan Day Gown This is a beautifully classic day gown. Made of crisp white linen the round neck and sleeves are banded in blue linen. Pin tuck pleats start right under the neckline and are accented by a handsome blue leaf and dot pattern. The hem of the dress is really special. It is banded in blue linen with the leaf and dot detail at the edge of the blue. Back button closure.
Antique French child's dress lavished with pintucks and chemical lace (sounds horrid), which was produced by coating the underlying fabric with a chemical that allowed it to dissolve whilst leaving the remaining lace pattern intact. Every stitch on this dress is done by hand ... and let me tell you making it must have taken months to complete, as the ironing of it alone was enough to make me want to cry. ca. 1910
