A gorgeous rich ruby red crystal pleated dress for age 2. It has little short sleeves and pleats fall from the waist. The buttons at the back of the dress are an unusual heraldic design showing a 'coat of arms' - very English! The twisted trim at the waist creates a sculptural feel to the dress design. One of my hobbies is family tree research and I discovered my 5th great grand uncle , Daniel Masters (1712-1746) was a tailor in Swanage, Dorset and he had an 18 year old apprentice to help him for 3 years. At the end of the term Daniel had to make the apprentice a 'goode new suit for Holy-Days and another for the Working-Days'
Lovely ruby red dress for age 2. The dress is crystal pleated with short sleeves and wide waistband falling in loose pleats to the hem. There are 2 buttons at the back which have an unusual heraldic design. The trim at the front waist is unusual and adds a sculptural quality to this unique little dress.
