Dress, Child's Pink Ribbon and Lace

About this object

This is a knee length cream child's dress with lace insert panels at the front, a full skirt and short puff sleeves. It features salmon pink ribbon detailing and has a tie at the back. We estimate that it is from the 1950s.

Very frequently, girls in Wyndham had a new dress made for the A&P Show held in November. This dress was possibly made for such an occasion.
