Dress, Child's Blue with Lace Details

About this object

This is a pale blue knee length short sleeved child's dress. Made from a synthetic seersucker material, it has a light blue/green undergarment.

We believe this dress was made by Chrissy Hardy of Edendale for her daughter Anne. Note the rouleau button detailing at the back. This feature would have taken a lot of skill and time and is a beautiful element of this dress.
