This one is white Bearissima Swiss Batiste with white tatting. This set had a slip, ready to smock booties and a sweet bonnet. Customer smocked the back and front, but will need to add a few more smocked rows to the front of the gown.The front band has white mother of pearl buttons. The front placket also has entredeux and tatting on either side. The hem has sections with 5 rows of tiny pintucks and tatted insertion in between. the edge has tatting and is rolled and whipped and then pinstitched. The slip has the baby’s name and christening date embroidered on it. It also has tatting around the lower edge. Just got this precious picture of the baby boy wearing it!
