ladies who love to sew and quilt. It a very casual group. Sometimes we get work done and sometimes we just visit and talk.
Today, I was running a little late and when I got there, a row of vintage/antique
baby clothes were lying out to see.
It turns out that a family member had to get out of the house she was living in and she had multiple boxes of old vintage linens, glassware and more to get rid of and she was
going to throw them away!!!
But my friend rescued some. Well my heart just beat faster as I was looking at all these treasures of daygowns, shirts, aprons, and gowns and to think they would have been dumped.
my heart skipped a beat when she said I could have this one if I wanted it.....
Oh My Goodness!!!! Did I ever!!!!
My ears could not believe what I was hearing. I was so excited to get it home.
The gown measures 42" long and I think that is bobbin lace with row of pintucks.
It has some tears and holes in the christening slip and gown and I am not sure
what I will do about repairing it yet, but I wanted to share this treasure.
