An exquisite nightgown full of hand embroidery on both sides inspired by Victorian samplers. Victorian samplers were often created by young girls to demonstrate their embroidery skills and also as a way of learning to read and write. The embroidery on this nightgown is full of snippets that would have featured on these samplers - the alphabet, numbers and moral sayings. Many of the embroidery motifs are inspired by the moral sayings - including the fluffy bees - with others inspired by motifs found on the front cover of parenting books of the Victorian era.
A truly stunning heirloom that is possible to be worn by a special little one, perhaps for their Christening or first Christmas. The nightgown is washable and measures approximately 28 cm flat across the front under the arm pits and 84 cm long.
