This baby gown is over 60 years old.It was made by my SIL 's grandmother,Elanora. They are naming the baby after her.Grandmother Elanora, hand emb and HAND constructed (sewed) the complete gown and slip!She made it for my sil's aunt, when she had her.The aunt has never had any children, so she passed it down to my SIL since they are naming the baby after her mom.There have been other girls born to my SIL 's brothers , but she didn't give it to any of them , my daughter appreciates it, I know .she also crocheted a bonnet and booties, I will include later,when I finish soaking them

It is amazing with details and so well taken care of to be this old. Make you wonder what we could do without our fancy machines.

What a treasure this is to have passed down. Lovely, really lovely. The time it took her to make it all by hand is astonishing for today's sewists. Thank you for sharing.

All the tucks, the lace insertion, buttonholes, EVERYTHING, was sewn by hand.I took it to my magnifing light to see.When I told my daughter, she hadn't realized. We are impressed, hope you are too-Toogie
