Charming 19th C. Child Red Print Dress Vermont

In excellent antique condition, this fantastic early child's dress in red printed "cheater" cotton fabric, looks to have been little worn. Approximately 27" long from top of shoulder to bottom of dress, there are no holes, odors, fading, or repairs. Cheater cloth fabric is interesting and was used for hems and borders in clothing, without actually having to do the hems or piecing of borders! I don't find these garments too often and this smock-style dress is fantastic in every way! Early brass hook and eyes in place at back for fastening, along with cotton lace edges on sleeves. Found in Vermont years ago, this dress might have been used for Sunday church. Perfect for a colorful peg hook display! $45 + $6 ship
