Along with doilies and hankies and the Campfire Girls items my grandmother had placed some of her baby clothes inside the picnic basket. These sweet little garments are quite old as she was born in 1923.
The store bought dresses are quite lovely with darling dainty embellished touches.
|I really like the collar on this dress|
I carefully washed them as they were quite dusty and musty and then I pressed them. A couple of the dresses were handmade by my great-grandmother. She even embroidered some little flowers on them to dress them up.
|I love the hem and embroidery on this little slip|
Little sweet slips to wear underneath her little dresses.
Along with the baby slips and dresses she had also tucked in this sweet little knitted hat that my great grandmother had made for her grandsons. Isn't it sweet? I even have a picture of my dad and my uncle and one of them is wearing the hat. I'll have to look at it again to see which one.
|Sweet lace yoke|
|My great grandmother made this dress by hand|
The baby clothes are quite delicate now, but I am very happy to have them.
|She made this one too.|
|Tiny embroidered roses|
I'm not certain what I'll do with them in the future, but for now I'll put them aside and keep them safe.
