1984 Preemie Clothing Series Summary


This outfit has two pieces:

  1. Cotton gown. It has a white square yoke at the neck which is trimmed in lace and has a bow bottom centre. The bottom hem of the gown is straight. There are two parallel lines of lace running around the bottom of the gown. The sleeves also have a line of lace parallel to the hem and are trimmed with lace. The lace around the bottom hem is different from the lace everywhere else.
  2. Bonnet. It is the same colour as the gown and trimmed with two lines of lace (which is different from the lace on the dress)

Footwear: Knit booties
