Dress: 20” shoulder to hem, 14.5” across chest
Shoes: 4.75” long, 2.5” tall
A wonderful summer dress from the past that could be worn today! It is in very good condition, no tears, no moth holes, both buttons are in place and the material is a nice sturdy cotton. There are no tags, it is machine sewn. There is one light spot on the back near the hem, it looks like a water spot, there are a couple other spots that I believe would easily come out with a good soak. The shoes are a nice white, soft, thin leather. Only one shoe has the laces but both laces could easily be replaced with a pretty length of ribbon. The shoes do show signs of wear, I’m sure they have been on more than one pair of baby feet! The right shoe has a small hole near one of the lace eyelets. I have found that coconut oil works well on baby shoes for both cleaning and conditioning. I will leave this to the discretion of the buyer. I believe this cute little dress and shoe bundle dates to the 1920’s – 1940’s. These would make a great baby shower/nursery gift or decoration!
