Shadow Quilted Baby's Bonnet and Jacket

Shadow Quilted Baby’s Jacket and Bonnet

This is a very lovely little baby’s jacket and bonnet in a pale peach, lightweight crepe fabric with a silky peach lining. They are shadow quilted with tiny, neat stitches in blue thread and the very delicate and numerous motifs are stuffed with green, pink and yellow ‘stuffing’. Small areas of smocking are used to provide the fullness on the jacket. The jacket and bonnet are very neatly and expertly handsewn throughout apart from the sleeve, yoke and shoulder seams which are machine stitched also with tiny neat stitches. Possibly around 1930-40?
