Ayrshire Needlework

Child's day robe

Description:
The gown echoes fashionable ladies dresses of the late 1830s with an inverted triangle for the bodice and a long triangular panel in the front of the skirt.  Traditionally the point of the bodice was worn outside by a baby boy, but tucked inside the waistband for a girl.
