SUPERB 19THC. AYRSHIRE CHRISTENING GOWN. Superb Ayrshire embroidery on this lovely gown. A full skirt panel that has ornate large floral bouquets, floral and leaf vines, with scalloped worked wings on each side of panel. Embroidered and scalloped all around the edge of gown, with ornate Ayrshire bodice and capped leaves with three flat ruffles and fine Drawnwork.Measuring apprx.45"long, 9 1/2" across chest.The gown is in mainly very good strong condition, but there are a few small areas that need to be seen to. There are a few of the Needlepoint fillings that are missing and so this needs to be seen to. There is 3"area on edge of gown with repair and back of skirt opening another repair.There are a few areas with wear. Overall my opinion is that it is strong enough for baby once repaired. Add a slip  and because this gown has great volume one would not notice very much.Personally think gown is too good to not be repaired.Well worth taking the time to repair as the Ayrshire work is quite beautiful.
