Description

Blue horizontally ribbed silk boy's tunic/dress has natural neckline with no collar, long 2-piece sleeves and corded waist seam. Box pleated skirt has 2 3/4 band at hem that is finished with cording. (This could be a later addition since the lining fabric is a different color from the rest of the dress.)

Dress is padded with batting and lined with off-white china silk, all hand stitched.
