Antique Wool Baby Slip, 1910s, With Crocheted Lace, Handmade In Skagit Co Wa:
Ivory-colored wool baby slip or petticoat for cold climates nearly a century ago. Two shoulder tabs reinforced for buttons or snaps, but no buttons or buttonholes are present, so it was perhaps never worn. Tiny featherstitched embroidery around neck and sleeves. Machine-sewn french side seams. Expertly hand hemmed with handmade crochet lace. This is a sweet, simple, hard-to-find antique baby garment, made for a baby born in 1916, Skagit County, Washington.Length: 14” from neckline to hem.Waist: about 18”.Condition: Slip is yellowed from age. Holding it up to the light I see a few tiny holes and a tracing where the wool pile is thinned. Tiny rip near back neckhole, can be mended. Generally a strong piece for its age.This garment has been gently handwashed in Woolite, dried flat, and pressed. (Biz or Oxiclean are not recommended for wool fabric.)PLEASE NOTE: The baby shoes are a prop, NOT included in this sale. They belonged to the same baby.
