I love visiting Vintage Textile, one of the best, most descriptive vintage fashion sites on the Internet. The Regency era fashions are superb. Take this embroidered child’s dress, which was once white. It was made for a child around one or two years of age. The dress, which came from a New England estate, is long, like a christening dress, which suggests that the child would have been carried in it. The fabric is made of a lightweight cotton broadcloth, and the Persian-style Tree of Life embroidery design is made with wool floss.
