nightdress; baby

Description
Baby's sleeveless nightdress. Bodice is trimmed with cut out decoration and the bottom edge is in two tiers with cut out decoration.
This item appears to have been re-purposed probably from a day dress as there are markings on the front where a belt would have been in place on the bodice. Also the arms have been slit to allow a larger child to fit into it, very worn at yoke. Button hole at back closing but button missing and evidence of a drawstring at neck which would have been how it originally closed (no drawstring currently present).
