A dress for a young child made from white polyamide inset and trimmed with white lace and smocked pastel coloured embroidery. The neckline and cuffs to the short sleeves are embroidered to match. A small patch pocket is set on one side, also trimmed with lace and embroiderey. The bodice is fitted to a gathered full skirt and the inset sleeves are short and puffed. The dress fastens at the rear with a series of press studs and buttons. This example dates from 1958-9 and appears to be machine stitched and hand finished.
